There is so much going on in Brisbane over the weekend and coming week. I just found out a good friend of mine Aaron Nebauer is playing at Black Star Coffee tonight. Aaron released ‘New Age Neanderthals’ late last year and I missed the album launch so I can’t wait to go and watch him perform. It’ll certainly beat waiting around all night listening to ‘Welcome back, we are just five hours away from Kate walking down the aisle.’

Big Thoughts from the FRIGHTENED Well
Something else I missed last year was the Brotherhood of the Wordless performance at the Queensland Writers Festival. This group is made up of people with Autism and other disabilities that preclude speech and use alternative communication methods to convey their needs and wants. They’ve been working together with Ghostboy to put on this spoken word event Big Thoughts from the FRIGHTENED Well. If you’re interested it’s on at the State Library at 4pm Saturday 30th April – Entry is free but bookings are required through qtix- Big Thoughts from the FRIGHTENED Well
Speedpoets on Sunday, at a new home, Brew, in Lower Burnett Lane. I can’t wait to see the crew, listen to some great poetry and I think I’ll read a flood poem. I’ve been wanting to for a while.
And I hope I can get along to Black Dove Members Night on Wednesday next week featuring Nick Grivas, Trudie Murrell, Eleanor Jackson & special guest Candy Royalle. Here’s the link http://betsyturcot.wordpress.com/what-i-do/black-dove-members-night/
See you at something somewhere.
