    Poetry Plus+46 @ Vinyl Underground

    Poetry Plus+46 returns May 19th, at 8:30 p.m. at the Vinyl Underground in the Kyungsung University area. THE EVENT BEGINS ON TIME. As always, in order to get the most fun out of Poetry Plus, it’s best to come early and stay late! Seating fills up fast. Like always, Poetry Plus is a FREE event.

    What is Poetry Plus? Poetry Plus is the longest running expatriate performance event in Busan, & perhaps in all of South Korea. The event sprouted out of a small community on November 11, 2000. Now, Poetry Plus has grown into a fully produced show which brings together a variety of art forms into a single night of entertainment and enlightenment.

    For Poetry Plus+46, we are happy to introduce several new contributors to the Poetry Plus stage to go along with several Poetry Plus veterans from previous events. A slideshow of photographs, illustrations, drawings, & paintings will continually play on the monitors & projection screen throughout the night. So, audience members get the opportunity to take in a gallery exhibit as well as stage performances.

    The Burrito Bike will be offering burritos for sale at the event!

    To get there: In Kyungsung (subway stop 212). Go up exit 3 and keep walking straight. Starbucks is on your right. Turn right at the first street and walk 2.5 blocks. On your right, a sign with the Warhol banana, head down the stairs and glide right in.
