With a fast approaching expiry date on their visa and the painfully long, slow and expensive wait to see if another visa will be granted, RikTheMost has decided to put on a show in Wellington now, in case it is their last!
Come along to hear some dope ass poems from the Wellington Regional Slam Champion and imagine what a beast it took to put them into 2nd place at the NZ National Finals! ;)
There will be ten open mic spots available - message Rik or post on the event wall to book one - go on, be brave! "Dooooooo IT!!!!!!" (Shia LaBeouf 2015). A few spots will also be reserved for signing up on the night.
Tickets: $10 (or what you can afford) - you don't miss out on art just because you don't have money. Similarly, if you want to pay it forward and buy a suspended ticket that can be used by someone who cannot afford the entry then that'd be just beautiful.
All proceeds go towards spiralling visa costs or a plane ticket outta here - depending on how the application goes...
