A Sign of the Rhymes

— The Grain Barge
Not your average spoken word night!
time:19:30
price: See event details

Information:

A Sign of the Rhymes brings you four of Bristol's finest underground poets. Touching on subjects from drug abuse to mental health, politics to general life philosophy, this promises to be an action packed show. This night will not be your typical 'clicking fingers mid verse' affair. This night will be loud, it will be lairy. This is spoken word for real motherfuckers!

Oliver Neary is a lover of all things sordid when it comes to poetry, but only in the ears of the listener. His poetry is story based, putting you in the shoes of unexpected people. It is reflective of the weird and wonderful; the downtrodden and daft; with peevish undertones on poverty, power and the struggles of mental health. Meant to provoke internal dialogue, you'll either leave with a strange mix of emotions, or merely wondering what the fuck it is you've just listened to.

Sophie Macaroni is a poet and a rapper who watches, listens and learns from the cacophony of life and recycles the noise into lyrics and lines. She has been known to permeate and scramble the minds of wide eyed festival goers in the witching hour with tales of vine-climbing, anarchic spiders and she has been known to use vulnerability and personal experience to illustrate the effects of trauma to audiences. In between lyrical outpourings she is a warm personality, a voracious and passionate performer, who tells just the occasional awful dad joke.

'Stop trying to be me' Alex Turner

Jack O'Grady, just being himself for 20 minutes

Mike Dennis is a classically-trained violinist and seasoned wordsmith, lover of golden age hip hop and host of the Grain Barge and Gallimaufry Open Mic nights.
