We're very excited to have confirmation that the Antipoet are coming to entertain us at the next Keystone Slam, on 9th September. This weekend they're at the Camden Head, performing in the Erratic Review for the Camden Festival, having stayed down south this summer (in 2012 and 2013 they took their mad satirical songs up to the Edinburgh Fringe.)
Paul Eccentric and Ian Newman, jointly known as the Antipoet, are the leaders of the Rrrants collective and in recent years they've performed all over the country, in venues ranging from this year's Glastonbury Festival to the back of a milk truck. Somewhere in between these two extremes comes our Pop Up gig at the Bar des Arts in Guildford, where they've twice had audiences in tears of laughter. Ian is a brilliant musician on the double bass, too, and we must also mention Paul's expertise on the triangle.

So on the 9th September we're expecting another great night of just-for-fun slamming. Who will take the first, second and third prizes of goody bags containing Dónall's choice DVDs and books and other desirable stuff - the Tiny Prizes? What will be in the hands of the other entrants in the Slam, as they leave the Keystone that night? For no entrant will go home empty-handed, that's the 1000 Monkeys' pledge.
How to enter: By email here, or contact 1000 Monkeys, or sign up 7pm - 7.30pm at the Keystone on 9th September.
