Launching Louche Women

You can also see Caroline and Liz in their new monthly talk show at the Poetry Cafe, Soho. Featuring guests, topical chat, poems, and music the night has only been going for two months and has garnered such praise as “Loose Women meets William Borroughs” and “You’ve got under my Skin” and “Ingenious”. Fancy!

Guests have included Bridget Sojourner from the tv show Fabulous Fashionistas, Richard Strange who showed us his extreme scars and an arrow shot at his head by Kevin Costner and Flame Proof Moth who usually plays in the sea (don’t know how that works with electricity, but he came on dry land for us.)

It’s a great night out.  You’d be a fool to miss it. December 4th. 7.30pm. Check the gigs page.
