Poetry Jam this Friday

Summer Poetry Jam

this Friday (22 May 2009) at Café Rót on Hafnarstræti, Reykjavík

I’ll be getting there for 7pm and am on at 7.30pm, followed by Marc Vincenz, who’s developing quite a formidable collection of poems about the colour and contradictions of life in China. I’ll be doing some manager poems peppered with a few other bits and pieces.

The Jam’s downstairs at Café Rót, lots of sofas to lounge around in and about the only place you can get any darkness in Reykjavík at this time of year.

Here’s the full programme (I think it’s mainly in English, with maybe two people reading in Icelandic):

17:00-17:20 Jón Þór Sigurðsson
17:30-17:50 Daniel Norman Tumasson
18:00-18:20 TBA
18:30-18:50 Nikulas Ári Hannigan
19:00-19:20 TBA
19:30-19:50 Robin Vaughan-Williams
20:00-20:20 Marc Vincenz
20:30-20:50 Helgi Jónsson
21:00-21:20 Mark Andrew Zimmer
21:30-21:50 Magnus Ivar Markusson

22:05-22:50 Radioactive Meltdown (band)

There’s coffee and cake, but no alcohol, except in the intervals (if you cross the street).
