The Tongue Box is OPEN...

Tongue Box is a night of poetry readings and other forms of spoken word, also featuring live music, taking place on the last Tuesday of every month at The Cobblestone Pub in Smithfield (77 King Street North, Dublin 7). Hosted by Raven and CAH-44, it has developed a reputation as one of the most exciting and fun regular poetry and music events in Dublin. I will be reading at the next Tongue Box on Tuesday 29 March , where I'll also be giving some poems from the forthcoming book an airing. The other featured poets are Catherine Cullen and Abby Oliveira. Music is from Pearse McLoughlin. Start time is 8pm and admission is free.

Wurm im Apfel: rent party

Wurm im Apfel is throwing a rent party to cover costs for its 2011 programme of readings and publications. Proceeds will go towards the funding of performances by Kimberly Campanello, Rachel Lehrman, Gavin Selerie and David Toms - and the forthcoming publication of full-length books by Dave Lordan, Astrid Lampe and myself. Suggested donation is 10 Euro (alternatives will be accepted...) Those attending are also invited to bring suitably portable works of Dadaist art - or to come dressed as one. There'll be a prize for the best. There will also be a raffle. Performing on the night will be Enda Reilly, Anne Tannam, Cah-44, Raven, Catspupil, Elder Roche and more. 20% of the proceeds will go to Aware , the mental health charity. The date is Tuesday 22 March . Start time is 8pm . The venue is the Cat and Cage , 74 Drumcondra Road, Dublin 9 (opposite St Patrick's College).

Howl, the reading

On Saturday 5 March I will be reading at an event in London's Poetry Café celebrating the life and work of Allen Ginsberg. Participating poets have been invited to perform Ginsberg's poetry and/or their own material in demonstration of his wide, varied and ongoing influence. The event was triggered by the European release of the film Howl . A list of some of the poets scheduled to read appears on the poster above; a late addition to the bill, I look forward to joining them. Details: The Poetry Café, 22 Betterton Street, Covent Garden, London WC2. Saturday 5 March 2011, 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Admission is free, places are limited.
