Tomorrow on Wax Poetic: Battle of the Bards


Tomorrow's show will be a big treat as we welcome to of the giants of English literature into the studio. William Butler Yeats, and Robbie Burns. And just in time for Vancouver's biggest St. Paddy's celebration, the 2008 Edgewater Casino CelticFest. Yeats and Burns (along with Dylan Thomas) will be battling it out poetry slam-style, warming up for their big Battle on Thursday, March 13th as part of the Battle of the Bards Literary Pub Crawl. The crawl starts off at Doolin's Pub at 5:30 pm and finishes of in a big way at Ceili's Irish Pub at 8pm with a karaoke face-off where the poets have to spill their words backed by the sonic stylings of DJ Michael Louw and Elise Bouer.
After the ultimate winner is crowned, Louw and Bouer turn it into a crazy celtic dance party.
Tune in to the fun on Wednesday at 2pm PST, or check out our website for more info plus video, audio and pictures from past shows. www.poetryradio.blogspot.com.
