This months #TheEmpty is a Burns Night special featuring the best Spoken Word artists Glasgow has to offer along with DJ set by Yusuf Azak. Our kitchen will be serving up our usual sizzling 2-4-1 burger menu as well as some Burns Night staples. 

A showcase of Glasgow's vibrant, grassroots spoken word scene, the night brings together eight of the top performers in the city for a special one off event. Featuring such acts as Sam Small Poetry - organiser of the legendary Inn Deep poetry night, Kevin Mclean - Loud Poet and Katie Ailes - Loud Poet from the incredibly successful Loud Poets collective, the 'Indy Bard' himself Shaun Moore, Kilmarnock's finest Kieran Kelly, the BBC 1xtra featured Michelle Fisher, the one-man party Adam V. Cheshire ::::Literary Reprobate:::: and Glasgow's feminist icon Cat Hepburn - Writer.

Hosting the night is none other Kevin P. Gilday - Writer & Spoken Word Artist - an award winning writer and spoken word artist. He is the presenter of Rhyming OptionalSubcity Radio's dedicated Spoken Word show, and has performed all over the world including the Edinburgh Fringe, the Toronto Fringe, Lingo Festival (Dublin) and the Glastonbury Festival.

Whether you're new to the world of spoken word or a poetic veteran this is a night that'll showcase the best and act as an alternative to those stuffy, traditional Burns nights. So raise a glass as we celebrate the bard in a manner he surely would have approved of - with a few drinks and the next generation of Scottish poets.
