On 27th May, Paroxysm Press hosted a mighty fine show of spoken word performances at Jive in celebration of staying alive and active for a surprisingly long time. Here is a vid sampling the best of the night. It’s about 20 minutes long, but all quality.
Featuring, in order, Ben Kearvell, Jason Smith, Chiara Gabrieli, Michael Hier, Red Kelly, Kerryn Tredrea, Nico, Kami McInnes and Alison Bennett, all held together by Daniel Watson.
More cuts to come…. [language warning!!]
Missed the event? Want a sample what went down? Here’s a vid with brilliant performances from Alison Bennett, Kami, Ashlee Karlar, Matthew R. Davis, and Wallis Prophet.

After the mass-madness of ‘Too Stubborn To Die’ join us for the HANGOVER.
One crusty evening of hangovers and hair-of-the-dog.
Featuring flash fiction and short fiction from Paroxysm Press publisher DANIEL WATSON.
It’s our regular Spoke N Slurred (now at The Brick City Bar). And hey – not everyone can make it to Jive on Saturday night. OR see both gigs in a weekend of wild. Be inspired by Saturday night then join us here on the open mic and show us what you’ve got.
Saturday 27th May
7:30 – 11:00 pm

Since 1998 Paroxysm Press has been hammering out the words in print and on the mic.
There have been more authors and artists than we can count – many no longer with us on this big, beautiful brewery we call Earth.
Now witness everyone from old schoolers (including two ’98 originals) right up to a crop of cocky ‘kids’ who’ve been killing it on the mic around Adelaide in recent years.
MC Daniel Watson
Prepare to be entertained, surprised and probably offended. This one is the shit. Don’t miss out.
At 11:30 stay on to see Gosh! live.
