Wordz Only, the oldest sibling of Poetry Plus, will return for a night of poetry, short stories, personal narratives, limericks, sonnets, raps and rhymes, stand up comedy, chants, rants, & tall tales. First-timers, old-timers are ALL encouraged to join in the sharing!

We will take the idea of feature readers in a new direction and showcase new voices on the scene: Alex Dulanovic and Azeem M.

*Anthony Velasquez, who has recently published in several literary journals in the United States, will serve as co-host.

*Additionally, the musical stylings of Blake Roberts will precede and follow the Wordz Only event.

In addition to the two features, we will have open 5 minute spots and two 8 minute spots.

*The Ovantgarde is a new place which is sure to become a fixture in the local art scene.

To get there: In Kyungsung (subway stop 212), if you are looking at the Starbucks, go left, walk to the first street, turn right. And turn right again at the next street. After 20 meters or so, turn right again into a short alley. Walk to the back. Look left. Go down the steps! This is a very cool new venue.

HQ Gwangan Open Mic Night @ HQ Gwangan

Alright, folks, our new weekly trivia night is continuing to build, and we are always looking for new brainiacs to raise their swords. If you weren’t able to make it in the past, let me remind you that the pub quiz is now at HQ Gwangan every Wednesday, and there’s a new format:

1000 Won Entrance Fee Per Player / Winning Team Gets The Cash!

Maximum Team Size is 5. Minimum Team Size is 1.

2 Rounds of Questions
3 Categories in Each Round
5 Questions in Each Category

Plus in between rounds, we will have a Beer Bonus round where one team can win a free pitcher of Cass or OB.

We’ll be starting the quiz at approximately 9:00, and it’ll be done before 11:00 so for those of you coming from outside of Gwangan, you can hightail it to your bus or subway to stiff over the taxi drivers–or if you want to keep drinking, nobody’s stopping you.

Following, trivia, come on down for the newest open mic in town starting around 11 p.m.

Wordz Only+48 @ Ovantgarde
Aug 25 @ 8:30 pm – 11:45 pm
Wordz Only+48 @ Ovantgarde

Wordz Only, the oldest sibling of Poetry Plus, will return for an evening of poetry, short stories, personal narratives, testimonials, limericks, sonnets, raps and rhymes, & tall tales. Wordz Only+48 will be the 104th event under the 18 year old Poetry Plus event series umbrella. Everyone is encouraged to attend and participate. This is a great event for both first timers and savvy performance veterans, as well as everyone in between!

For Wordz Only+48, we will feature Seoul-based poet, spoken word artist, singer, songwriter, and actor CeCe Kim. I’m thrilled that we can feature our very first Seoul-based performer at this event and I hope CeCe’s feature is just the first of many more such exchanges between Busan & Seoul. I think you will end up loving her performance.

*Anthony Velasquez, who has recently published in several literary journals in the United States, will once again serve as a co-host and tone-setter.

*Additionally, the musical stylings of Jinju-based Rachel Szabo will precede the Wordz Only+48 event. She is a very unique musician. Be on time and don’t miss the chance to check her out.

*The Process: everyone who wishes to perform will be able to write their names on a slip of paper and toss it into the Wordz Only floating lunch box. One of our luminaries (read: anyone), will draw the first name and that’s how we will begin. It’s your turn to perform when the preceding performer draws your name from the lunch box (Just an FYI: this does not apply for our feature). All these performance slots are for 5 to 7 minutes. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran, we encourage you to practice before the event and make sure your piece falls within these time parameters. If you only have one 2 minute piece, well, that’s fine, too. Getting to 5 minutes is not required.

*The Ovantgarde is a brand new place and it is sure to become a fixture in the local art scene. Our last event here went wonderfully and the Ovantgarde is the perfect home for our events. This place is cool.

After Wordz Only concludes, the very popular and acclaimed Korean band Happy People (해피피플) will play an extended set deeper into the night. They possess a strong reggae musical vibration in their instrumentation and sound. They definitely make a joyful noise. If you stick around, you will most likely end up digging them.

Before Wordz Only, beginning at 6:30pm, there will be another special event connected to our group. More information on that will be forthcoming soon;-).

To get there: In Kyungsung (subway stop 212), come up exit 3 and walk straight by the Starbucks on your right. At the first street, which slopes down, turn right. And turn right again at the very next street. After 20 meters or so, turn right again into the short alley with the big red sign for the Litre coffee shop on the tiny corner. Walk to the back. Look left. Go down the steps! Grab a beverage and a chair. Be wary of being too fashionably late because you’ll risk not being able to secure a chair or advantageous standing spot.

Wordz Only+48 promises to sizzle! Come one, come all, be there or be happy elsewhere;-)
