Mashed Poetics

  • 7 Dining Lounge 53 West Broadway Vancouver, BC, V5Y 1P1 Canada (map)

Mashed Poetics is a night of spoken word and music mash up where we take a record album and then assign songs from the album to a bunch of poets and those poets write new poems for the show. 

We also have a live band, The RACE CAR YA-YA'S to play all the songs with the poets performing in between the songs and sometimes even playing with the band.

This time around we are featuring the classic 90's album Fashion Nugget by CAKE. We've got 14 songs and 14 poets which means 14 new poems. WOW. Here they are in order of performance.
