Another exquisite portion of Kill Your Darlings was served up to the lit-loving Bristol masses at the Cube Cinema in this latest outing. Met with great anticipation, the event welcomed new 'darling', writer and poet Chimene Suleymen, whilst the superb Joe Dunthorne, author of Submarine, took the role of headliner. The nominated theme for performances this month was 'Wasted'.

First established in 2007, 'Tongue Fu' has achieved an impressive reputation in recent years for its forward-thinking approach to spoken-word nights in London. Built upon the creative foundation set down by lyrical impresario Chris Redmond and musical composer Riaan Vosloo, the linguistically pugnacious Tongue Fu constantly seeks new ways to experiment with the concept of live performance.

After a somewhat quieter turnout for last month’s ‘blahblahblah’ spoken-word event, I’m happy to report that Monday evening saw a much healthier crowd congregate in the Old Vic’s basement theatre. Settling down for another instalment of entertaining wordplay, the lyrical den had been notably decorated with some unique ‘artwork’ that could only be accredited to the event’s eccentric compere, Byron Vincent.
