Buddy Wakefield : Riled Up And Wasted On Light Tour
Newcastle Cumberland Arms,
Friday 5 December, 7.30pm
Buddy Wakefield is one of the greatest living exponents of an American slam-style poetry that has its roots in the Beat poetry of Ginsberg & co. His poetry is full of passion, and compassion for everything that makes us human, expressed in dazzlingly surreal images that are true and surprising in the manner of dreams. It is metaphysical metaphor jazz, and we'd like you to come along for the ride.
Supported by Steve Urwin, with music from Miss Danby &The What.
