a poetry event in… Balbriggan?!

A friend, poet and long-time advocate of Balbriggan arts, sent me an email about an open-mic event on Thursday in Trax (the café just opposite the train station as far as I remember). I am dubious of open-mic nights, inviting poets to microphones phones could be compared to allowing a drug addict be unsupervised in a pharmacy, but Poetry Upfront comes highly recomended from a trusted source. So without further comment:

*Poetry Upfront *

Free Open-Mic Poetry Night
Thursday May 18th 8pm

Trax Café (Station street,Balbriggan,Co. Dublin)
All Poets and Listeners Welcome.

    Hi poetbloggs, I am very grateful you have added me onto your list and I will add you to my roll tonight.

    I am starting up a fortnightly poetry night at trhe

    Monster Truck Art Gallery
    corner Francis Street and the Coombe, opposite st Patricks Cathedral and the first guest poet is Raven, who is one of the best poets I have heard perform/read in Dublin. He is a San Franciscan and I also have a jazz duo from Blackrock college going to back the poets. There is an open floor and all are welcome, but bring your own drink and it is a pay what you can policy entrance.

    Hey Desmond,

    I might be in Dublin over the next couple months, and i’m keen to check it out if you’re still there…
