New Mersey Poets’ Blast! evening

Venue Jimmy's
Admission £5
Start Time 19:00
End Time 22:30

Welcome to the inaugural New Mersey Poets’ Blast! evening (upstairs) at Jimmy’s. Blast! is music, Spoken Word and comedy – and features some of Merseyside’s most talented performers.

For Blast #1 they have spoken word from the brilliant Lumenaate and the amazing Wordy Lirpa. Lumenaate’s urban poetry is an absolute delight, and Wordy’s inaugural poetry and music evening Outspoken was one of Liverpool’s cultural highlights of December.

There will be laughs aplenty (he assures us) from the mysterious Barry Comedy, and after the Blast Pop Culture Quiz Spot the Bastard (answer number 7 is ‘Michael Gove’), there will be comedy and spoken word from Saint Vespaluus.

Saint headlined downstairs at Jimmy’s in October, and is a regular on the Liverpool Spoken Word scene. His poems and tales take in gender fluidity and how language abuse controls society, but there’s also lots of references to 80s electro pop stars, Scouse dads morphing into pirates and how the good old days were actually sh*t. Really sh*t!

Matthew-Loughlin Day is one of Merseyside’s most talented musicians. Matty has curated two Shipwrecked festivals in the past six months, and is taking an evening off from his brilliant band The Shipbuilders to perform some of his equally ace solo songs.
