SOULSVILLE: MR BONGO

23:00 - 03:00 £4 (early bird) / MOTD

*TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT NOW ONLY AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR*

Regarded in the scene as thee go-to record label for classic, rare and hard-to-find gems in Latin, Brazilian, African, Reggae and Jazz music; MR BONGO for over 25 years has featured a recording roster that has established itself as one of the preeminent record labels in the UK if not the world.  Featuring artists such as Terry Callier, Seu Jorge, Maros Valle, Ebo Taylor and Prince Fatty, Mr Bongo have been sourcing and releasing records that have consistently smashed up parties worldwide since 1989. Thus, and in partnership with our good friends at the Bongo Club (no relation…currently), we are stoked beyond measure to present for one night the legendary MR BONGO.  Featuring MR BONGO with support from SOULSVILLE in the main room, and an upstairs takeover from local reggae and dub aficionados Jofis (Mighty Oak Records) and Fabz (I-Tal Faya/Dub Combe Records), we expect this to be the SOULSVILLE of 2017!   FACEBOOK

FLINT & PITCH

19:00-22:00 £10

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.

MESSENGER

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!
