Walsall poetry night Yes We Cant presents something very special in the run-up to Xmas. Their final event of the year will be headlined by Spoz, former poet laureate of Birmingham, and poet-in-residence for Birmingham city FC (though we won’t hold that against him). Entertaining, witty, and with plenty to say about the state of the world, Spoz will put a smile on your face and a song in your heart.
The ‘Alf Ender slot will be something very different. Not Quite Dead Yet are an ever-growing collective of ukulele players from Brownhills – we’re really not sure how many of them there are, but we think it’s somewhere between ten and two hundred – and they’ll be playing a series of punk classics for your delectation and delight. On ukuleles. NQDY will have an extended slot, and they’ll be rounding the night off after Spoz’s set with a few more tunes.
If this doesn’t get you in the mood for Xmas, nothing will! Doors are at 7pm, entry to the event is free, though the organisers do ask for donations when you leave so they can pay the acts, and it’s possible the December 1st event may run on a little later than the usual 9.30 finish. But it’ll be worth it. Oh, and we’ll be revealing the name of our very special guest for January, too. Another great reason to come along. See you there!
