Gig Information

GUEST MUSICIAN for October gig:
Inside.Out is delighted to guest the elder statesman of roughhouse folk, BERNIE GRIFFEN.
What might be the greatest duet that Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash never got to sing.” Those are the words of Radio New Zealand’s reviewer William Dart, and the song he’s talking about is “Sweet Obsession” from Bernie Griffen’s album Doors Wide Open.
Griffen is a master song smith who writes tunes and words that people don’t forget. His guitar travels a “brooding soundscape” (William Dart, RNZ).
Bernie's songs echo with histories of big lives lived and lyrics full of urgency and edgy presence. He mines a Southern Gothic terrain, which could be described as swamp-folk or psychedelic country. It shows his deep understanding of roots music.
Bernie is the long-standing host of specialist American music show, Border Radio, on Auckland’s alternative station 95 bFM.

Inside.out is open mic for writers, plus invited musician guests. Timeline: open mic spoken word from 7 -8, music from 8 - 8 30, then open mic spoken word to end of event.BRING YOUR WRITING - poetry, flash fiction, micro fiction, short story, novel excerpts, performance poetry etc - to share at the open mic (up to 6 mins max) , or come as audience to hear what's brand new.To read, just sign up on the open mic list as you arrive.
