Verses Festival of Words‎ – Mashed Poetics

April 25, 2018 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm

We acknowledge this event is taking place on the unceded territories of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.

Mashed Poetics is a night of Spoken Word and Music mash up. Mashed Poetics has been a part of the Verses Festival of Words since its inception and we’re happy to be a part of the 2018 edition.

This year we are featuring Couldn’t Stand the Weather by Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble.

We have 8 poets writing new work based on the songs from the album plus we have The Cold Shots playing all the songs. Poets will perform in between the tunes.

Here’s our lineup for this year

Side A

Scuttle Buttin’ (instrumental)–Francis Arevalo
Couldn’t Stand the Weather–Kay’la Fraser
The Things That I Used to Do–Janet Marie Rogers
Voodoo Chile (Slight Return(–Manik

Side B

As we do with all Vancouver Poetry House events we strive to put on trans friendly events. Please help us move towards that goal.
