Hammer & Tongue Slam Final 2012

After our second season hosting slam poetry competitions in Dalston, the people have chosen the competitors for this year’s Hackney poetry slam title. On Tues 4th September, 6 previous winners will be competing in a three-round, audience-judged poetry slam with live djing from Kit Caless (NTS) and hosted by local performance poets Angry Sam, Raymond Antrobus and Michelle Madsen. Come down, judge for yourself. See how live poetry can be entertaining, unpretentious and inspiring. \Hammer And Tongue must be one of the best community oriented gigs in Britain. They have created a living breathing monster of poetry. Where else can you stage dive at a poetry gig?”@The Victoria 451 Queensbridge Road Dalston.
