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.
