The bus drivers prayer/Word is born

Two cracking spoken word events for you this week.

The first is our old favourite WORD IS BORN, which is this Sunday at The Others in Stoke Newington.

The line up includes extra special sets from two exemplary providers of live hip-hop.
To begin with, Dizraeli & Bellatrix are going to give us an exclusive taste of a special set they have been concocting. Two mouths and one double-bass intertwined in splendid hip-hop polyphony.

Once you've recovered, the recently re-energised and rawly rambunctious JH Collective will be displaying their unique jazzed out hip-hop soul stew. 

There will also be the jam session as standard at the end and inc's own Will Coldwell/DJ Royale will be spinning funky hip hop soul and jazz to keep you entertained betwixt sets. 

Check the event page here.

The second is a new one called THE BUS DRIVERS PRAYER at Hackney Attic, the venue at the top of the new Hackney Picturehouse on Mare Street.

First night is this Thursday 3 november, starting at 8pm. After that it's first thursday of each month.
Local poet Richard Purnell will be compere alongside Jamie Smart.

The line up includes...
Political poet Grim Chip - one of the most intense and impressive performers on the spoken word scene
Singer songwriter Joe Chiari - grooves in various bands and has worked with likes of Chase & Status)
Soul singer Kimberleigh, who's been doing her thing at places like Ronnie Scott's for the past year
