Speakeasy Revue offers music, poetry

Christian J. Collier and Mark "Porkchop" Holder will be joining forces again Saturday at the Moccasin Bend Brewing Co., 4015 Tennessee Ave., in St. Elmo.

For over a year, the two have been responsible for the Strange Bedfellows shows at the brewery. This time, however, they are hosting The Speakeasy Revue, an open-mike night showcasing an eclectic blend of poetry/spoken word and music.

The Speakeasy debuted in 2009 and has been hosted by Collier. Over the past two years, the open-mike night has had a diverse array of readers and performers, including multiple Pushcart Prize nominees and even acclaimed comedian Doug Stanhope.

Doors will open for The Speakeasy Revue at 8 p.m. Those interested in performing will be able to sign up at that time. Admission is $5 at the door.
