A big thank you to everyone who attended our underground poetry event at the Space for Free Arts on Saturday, we had an excellent time! Teea Aarnio sang, recited, and improvised amazing spoken word with VIlle Lindfors' electronic soundscape complimenting the words; Tibu Borgstèn read in three different languages about life and love; and folk-wunderkind Vähäsarja elated us all with his beautiful riffs and lyrics. Five brave souls made it to the open mic stage too, and the HPC's super rare Poetry Jam album found a new owner. Our respect and appreciation go out to the Kallio Initiative, the volunteers who made Kallio Block Party happen, the Space for Free Arts, and YOU, the people for whom and by whom urban culture is made possible. Hojo!
