Spoken word and music night to make you howl: London's Mother Wolf Club opens its doors
The spoken word scene in London is slowly returning to live – and meanwhile a brand-new night has risen with easing of lockdown. The Mother Wolf Club – a mix of poetry including open-mic, and music – opened its doors at The Others in Manor Road, Stoke Newington in May. This month, on Thursday 24 June, it features Jack Jones, frontman of the band Tampolene, lead guitarist for Peter Doherty and the Puta Madres and the Libertines resident tour poet, delivering a spoken word set; musician Harry Mold; Shaun Rivers, co-host of London’s Chocolate Poetry Club; and Jamie Merrick, who hosts Word of Mouth London.
Organiser John Swale, who will also be performing, said: “It’s a night of celebration of the word throughout with rambunctiously poetic intros to the poets and there is always a crowd participation poetry game.”
There’s also a one-poem open mic from 7-8pm (sign up 6.30pm), with 11 slots available. More details
