What: Hiding In Bunkers From Bass Drops, slam poetry

Where: Scratch Warehouse, 271 – 273 Macaulay rd North Melbourne.

When: 22, 23, 27 Sept, 8:50pm

Who: Ben Stokes, New Zealand national spoken word champion

Why: Ben Stokes describes what he does as a part poetry, part rap, semi-punk, semi-socially conscious take on the state of things.  Stokes performs in an intimate setting, slamming poetry like there’s no tomorrow.  Stokes’ version of slam poetry is relatable and soulful; it comes with heart and leaves you feeling inspired.  It’s a feat to perform with such style and rhythm while relaying ideas of social issues, cultural themes and thoughtful thoughts.
