Catalyst Presents: Jim Christy

Jim Christy & Le Mot Cafe
LIVE at the Wunderbar
Saturday 17th February, 8pm door sales $10

Catalyst is proud to once again play host to one of North America's most entertaining & compelling performance poets Jim Christy.

Born in Philadelphia before hopping all round the continent, Jim Christy now lives in Canada. He is an established writer of poetry, feature articles, reviews and biographies with published volumes on Bukowski and Kerouac among others as well as books of his own poetry, several mystery novels, short story collections and travel writing. In 2002 he released a CD of spoken word/jazz called A Night in Grombalia. Also an established and successful visual artist, Christy has exhibited widely and has work in private collections throughout the world.

It's been a few years since Jim was last in NZ and we can't wait to hear his brash and brassy spoken word accompanied by the Le Mot Cafe (special edition) band at the Wunderbar.

A cover charge of $10 will apply and the evening will NOT feature an open mic.

Catalyst's next poetry open mic will be Thursday 8th March, 8pm
