London hosts a lot of poetry nights. If you wanted to, you could probably go to one each day. With that in mind, it’s hard to find ones that stand out and I’m not at all envious of anyone who hosts a night or makes a new night. So when a friend of mine decided to start a new open mic night I was intrigued to see how it’d fair against the other nights in London and my god it was great.
Run by Spike Zephaniah Stephenson, the night features an open mic, music, feature acts and pictionary. It was a beautiful night and felt different to a lot of other nights. I’m very curious to see how it goes on in the future.
I got up on the Open Mic whilst I was there to test out a new poem of mine, one about the wonderful and awesome friends I’ve made this year. It seems to be going down well and I’m just happy they are liking and enjoying it since my friends are awesome. My friends would beat your friends.
