Turn up to Speak Up...wise words
I've written about the spoken word scene here in Birmingham before and one of the shiniest stars right now, Jodi Ann Bickley, holds her own night called Speak Up. The next one's tomorrow night at the Bull's Head (Moseley, Birmingham, England...you know...that funny little island where it always rains and that nice Mr Murdoch listens in to your 'phone calls). If you've not been along to a spoken word night, go. She's brilliant, as are the rest of the performers. You'll laugh, you'll cry and you'll probably come out of it all feeling a darn sight better about the world than you did when you went in. It's Jodi's birthday bash too and I can't think of a better pressie for her than making sure the place is rammed.
