Honey O performed live at Slamalamdingdong
A new video from a live performance of mine has just been uploaded to the Slamalamadingdong Youtube channel. This is my favourite regular Slam Event held in Melbourne founded by Michelle Dabrowski. On this particular night I was asked to perform live with a band, but only after meeting them for the first time backstage and then having one minute to discuss the mood and the theme of the poem. The poem I chose, Honey O, is an older one I haven't performed in years. It was first written when I was collaborating with rock band The Mime Set in 2005. You can watch and listen to the Slamalamadingdong version right here.
