Things to do: #3 See Nikki Patin in her Phat Grrl Revolution Tour

Chicago-based Def Jam poet and member of the American National Slam Team Nikki Patin is heading to New Zealand on her Phat Grrrl Revolution Tour. Her Wellington event is at Happy (underground, cnr Vivian and Tory streets) on Saturday (21 March) at 8 pm.

I was planning to go to this, because the reason she came over to NZ is because of the lovely Miriam Barr, whose Literatti group did a show with her. But after reading Miriam's write-up of Nikki's solo show, I'm definitely going. If this is your sort of thing, you should too.

Postscript: Oh, and I was totally blown away by Nikki Patin's impressions of her time in Auckland so far: http://theliteratti.blogspot.com/2009/03/nikkis-impressions-just-remember.html

UPDATE: From the Word Collective:

Word Collective is hosting a Def Jam poet, Nikki Patin, who is doing one show only in Wgtn on Sat March 21st after touring the motu.
Check her out on Youtube

The Wgtn Word Collective will be represented by two performers; Glenn Ashworth, with his hybrid word glide thru Pakeha and Maori kaupapa, and Ciara Mulholland, checking out of Godzone with a swansong appearance.

Tickets are $10 unwaged, $15 waged and the show starts at 8pm.
