Asphalt Words and Ocean Dreams

13/06 : 7:30pm

Asphalt Words and Ocean Dreams (or Asphalt for short) is Sydney’s latest poetry open mic, hosted by Albert Lin. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got something to share, or just want to sit back and listen to some great poetry, there is a space for you here. Close your eyes, let the sound of tires grinding on bitumen fade into the lapping of waves on sand. Let go of the day you just had and sit back with a drink in your hand, and hear the call of the ocean in a place it has never kissed.

Asphalt goes for 2 hours, from 7:30 to 9:30, with an intermission in between. Each performer gets 3 minutes at the mic. Don’t worry about quality; you have already made your mark just by coming. If you need liquid courage, or want some of the best chips in Sydney, the bar is right there. Come join our dream.

*ACCESSIBILITY: The Gig Bar level of Meraki is on the first floor, and is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible at present. It is accessed via one set of stairs which include a handrail.
