Summer officially landed this week and the doors of The Cube were flung wide-open to welcome in devotees of Bristol's leading literature night 'Kill Your Darlings', and to allow them to spill out freely onto the courtyard for some alfresco drinking. It was apt that to coincide with the arrival of the hottest season, this month’s event sported the raunchy theme of 'Sex', and appropriate that novelist Ned Beauman (no stranger to the written sex scene), was the headline act.
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'.
Kill Your Darlings returned to The Cube in Bristol for Episode 2 of this new literary event. The multiplex cinema was busier than last month's opening night, a sure sign that word had already spread.
A new monthly night for lovers of all things literary kicked off with the launch of 'Kill Your Darlings' at The Cube in Bristol. The event is the love child of self-proclaimed 'word idiot' Byron Vincent, award-winning novelists Nathan Filer, Chelsey Flood and Nikesh Shukla, comedian Tom Clutterbuck and Radio 4-endorsed writer and performer Molly Naylor.
Having made the recent and wholly unexpected decision to move on
from the poetry business, Blahblahblah's loquacious and trusted compere
Byron Vincent kicked off proceedings for his final time.
If the novelty t-shirt
manufacturers are to be believed, on the seventh day God created Manchester. If
this was the case then Monday evening saw the fruits of his labour make the
journey down south to Bristol for April’s instalment of ‘Blahblahblah’.
