Please join us on Zoom Thursday, December 3rd at 7 PM for Poetry Open Mic with featured poet Kris Demeanor.
Calgary born songwriter/spoken word artist Kris Demeanor exposes the underbelly of western Canadian culture - gambling, alcoholism, murder, religion, the suburbs. Kris has released seven recordings and has toured numerous times in Australia, Europe, solo and with his Crack Band. They’ve shared bills with such artists as David Byrne, Cake and Elvis Costello, Ray Davies, Billy Bragg and Black Francis, and Kris co-wrote two songs on music legend Ian Tyson’s 2017 release Carnero Vaquero.
Kris’s present musical projects are ’Cutest Kitten Ever’, a pop harmony trio that includes beat programming and co-writes with Rae Spoon, and a one man show of music and comedic monologue called ‘Russell’ that premiered January 2020 at Calgary’s High Performance Rodeo. Kris was Calgary’s poet laureate from 2012-14.
Join at 6:45PM to sign up to read a poem, and at 7PM to listen.
