Word in Your Ear

The Word Magazine spirit lives on in Word In Your Ear events, promoted by the magazine's David Hepworth and Alex Gold.
The December show at the Lexington, which featured music from Skinny Lister and The Dunwells, plus conversation from Danny Baker, was hailed as a great success by everyone who came.
The next, which takes place on March 18th, promises to be even better. "There are lots of places in London offering music. There are a few places offering speech. We want to lead the way in putting on both in one evening. That's why we're lining up great talkers as well as great players. In future they may be both," says David Hepworth.

The next Word In Your Ear is on Monday, March 18th at the Old Queen's Head on Essex Road, Islington (right). "We're delighted to put on a show here because there's more seating and we can use their audio-visual system. Halfway between Angel tube and the railway station at Essex Road, it's easy to get to. You can find out more about it at . http://theoldqueenshead.com/

The opening "act" will be Mark Ellen and the aforementioned David Hepworth, in their first public outing together since the demise of the lamented Word podcast. They will be presenting an extract from "Mark Ellen and David Hepworth's One-Man Show" in which they list and re-live their Most Disastrous Encounters With Rock Stars.

Those of you on the WIYE mailing list will already have had an exclusive 'Early Bird' ticket offer. We'll post details of where/when you can get tickets very soon!

so much for the early bird £10.00 tickets...did they really sell out in the 20 minutes from me receiving the email to trying to order on-line...?!?! Ah well, booked my 20-minutes-too-late-bird tickets, still good value so see you there!

any Massivistas planning to bootleg the ramblings of Ellen and "Dizzy" Hepworth for a sort of podcast type thing?

Tracey Thorn, pop star, author and twitterer has been added to the bill

Boo Hewerdine and Chris Difford debuting the words, pictures and music show they plan to take to Edinburgh this summer.

Does anyone know if Tracey Thorn will be selling the book there, or whether if you want it signed (doesn't really appeal to me, but if she's there, may as well, etc) you need to get one before?

I didn't book at first because I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get a babysitter.
I now have a babysitter but no ticket. Been on the waiting list for a while now :-(

Anyone know what time this starts please?

Not sure if any of the old Word team check this Blog - but if they do a big "thanks" for a great evening. Nice to see some familiar faces and I thoroughly enjoyed all the "acts" especially the Difford/Boo bit...never heard Boo before and it was a shame he didn't get to sing more as his voice was fantastic. Pub was good but pricey and for that sort of event I would think that all-seated would have been better, otherwise it was a top evening.
