Inside.Out is one of Auckland's regular hubs for Open Mic Writing and Spoken Word, featuring a guest musician or group each time.

You're invited to bring what you've written or bring loved pieces to share at the mic, up to five or six minutes - or come chill and enjoy.Open to all. Flash fiction, poetry, short story, performance poetry, micro fiction and life stories make great listening.

Excited to announce our guests this month are Coco Davis & Tom Rodwell.

"Coco sings with a soaring glory" - Simon Wilson Metro magazine. His words are no understatement. The powerhouse vocalist's craft breathes new life into the iconic forms of early female blues songs. Born in Berkeley, CA, Coco Davis has long had a deep affinity with jazz and blues.

A move to NZ saw Davis and her musical collaborator/producer Tom Rodwell (Storehouse, Don McGlashan) bond through shared love of country blues characters like Skipo James and Blind Willie Johnson." Old Haunts ( 2016) is smart, spooky, funny and at times as funky as anything." - Nick Bollinger, Radio NZ. "A true balladeer, Davis takes pride and passion in bringing female blues songs to a new generation."

With Tom Rodwell - "stonkingly exciting" - Metro Magazine. Tom performs improvised arrangements of hard to find blues, slave spirituals and work songs. "By turns wild, angry, hypnotic and sensual, it's as uncompromising as it is funky and some of the best live music I've seen." - Blues in London

This gig is not to be missed!

Books & chocolate bar prizes up for grabs randomly in the Five Word Challenge (use reflect, blues, tune, flash & china in a poem/micro-story < 50 words and place in the Red Box of Mystery.)

Please bring generous Koha for our hard-working musician guests. Hear good new writing and great music, meet other writers and keep updated on what's on Inside.Out happens once every month on the second Wed at the iconic One2One Cafe - always great coffee, drinks and meals.
