A Fool For Poetry: I'm Reading At The Metro On 1 April

I'm the guest poet at Music & Poetry at the Metro this coming Sunday, 1 April. Here's the lineup:

Guest Musicians: Ramon Oza and Susie Colien-Reid

Open Mike

Guest Poet: Tim Jones

The Metro is at 7 Lydney Place, Porirua, and the session runs from 4-6pm.

I'll be reading from Men Briefly Explained and trying a few newer poems out as well.

If you're on Facebook, you can sign up for the Facebook event and also see the Music at the Metro Facebook page for more news: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Music-at-the-Metro/301841379852705

Here is some more information about the guest musicians:

Black Eyed Susie

Ramon Oza and Susie Colien-Reid are the core sound of four piece original Celtic rock band Blackeyedsusie. Ramon has played electric guitar professionally for 35 years, starting with supporting his family by performing 6 nights a week for a 5 star hotel in India. Susie studied classical violin to diploma level, until her love of 70’s rock drew her to develop the freelance raw style she enjoys today. Individually both have performed for major international acts ranging from the Drifters, to the Alabama Blind Boys. As a duo their sound is a blend of high energy Celtic and Funk Blues Rock influence.

Wish I could be there -- have a great time! Would really love to catch you reading sometime soon. I'll be in Auckland next week, Poetry Live. Seems we might be just missing each other.

Oh, I read that wrong. Don't know how I thought that was Auckland. Maybe next time. Maybe I'll get glasses.

I love 'A Fool For Poetry'. Wish I could be there.

Tim Jones said...

Thanks, Michelle and lillyanne.

Michelle, if you are ever going to be reading in Wellington, or want to know about reading opportunities here, let me know!

Good luck :)
Hope to catch you reading again sometime soon, but not this weekend I'm afraid.

Now to prove I'm not a robot. Could be difficult.

Tim Jones said...

Thanks, Alicia!

None of us are robots - so say we all.

I hope one day to be a nanobot, and show pictures of my grandbots to bored youngbots at bus-stops.

Have fun at your reading, Tim.

Tim Jones said...

Thanks, Penelope - I did! And nary a jester's cap in sight, despite the date.
