FLINT & PITCH

19:00-22:00

Flint & Pitch are delighted to present the live performance of two new collections of poetry: Caroline Bird’s ‘In These Days of Prohibition’ and Rachel McCrum‘s ‘First Blast To Awaken Women Degenerate.’

As two of the strongest poet-performers in the UK, this double-header bill is not to be missed! And yes. There will be a raffle…. 🙂

MORE ABOUT CAROLINE BIRD
In her fifth collection of poetry Caroline Bird surrenders her poetic weaponry and goes on a quest to write the ‘simple truth’. The surreal imagery of her early work is re-deployed to venture into the badlands of the human psyche. Her poems hold their subjects in an unflinching grip, addressing faces behind the veneer, asking what it is that keeps us living. In These Days of Prohibition are days of intoxication and inebriation, rehab in a desert and adultery for atheists, until finally Bird edges us out of danger, ‘revving on a wish’.

MORE ABOUT RACHEL MCCRUM
Rachel McCrum is one of Scotland’s highest profile poets and performers. She was co-founder of cult spoken word night Rally and Broad and the inaugural Poet in Residence at BBC Scotland. She has previously published two poetry pamphlets, Do Not Alight Here Again (2015) and The Glassblower Dances (2012) which was winner of the 2013 Callum Macdonald Award. She performs and teaches UK-wide and internationally and presented her first one woman show at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The First Blast to Awaken Women Degenerate is her eagerly-awaited debut collection.

SUBSTANCE: OBJEKT (PAN, BERLIN) + RIBEKA (MUTE)

23:00 - 03:00

 

TJ Hertz aka Objekt returns for our first party post summer break. An artist who continues to go from strength to strength as a producer and dj, headlining the best clubs and festivals the world over, whilst showing admirable restraint with a series of perfectly executed releases: the self-released EPs; Flatland on PAN; and, the Kern mix on Tresor. Ribeka makes her Substance debut, having co-founded the occasional and absolutely on-point ‘So Low’ party with JD Twitch, whilst being A&R for the expansive Mute sub-label Liberation Technologies.

£8 (early bird - SOLD OUT) / £10 (adv) / MOTD

MESSENGER

23:00 - 03:00

Messenger Sound System, the original roots advertiser, consistently programmes the heights of conscious reggae music, dub-wise and otherwise!  Crazy to think now that it first started in Edinburgh back in 1987 and that it’s been keeping the fires burning, every month, at the Bongo for two thirds of that time.  That’s 30, THIRTY, years at the heart of Edinburgh’s reggae scene, and 20 years here at the Bongo!

We’re immensely excited here at the Bongo to be welcoming a DJ from the Far East to our stage. This doesn’t happen very often (we can’t actually remember when it last happened) and we’re especially pleased....
