September's edition features the don dada of east London Gboyega Odubanjo, the wickedest wordsmith Chelle OT, and DJ/producer/sheller Lex Amor; they'll be joined by the Veranda house band formed of a group of young musicians who will be jamming throughout the night. 

Curated by poet/educator Belinda Zhawi, writer/theatre-maker Malakaï Sargeant & writer/filmmaker Chima Nsoedoexpect an informal yet insightful evening of live performance and readings packed with laughs and deep hums; many lessons and many blessings.
