“…but what more could / you expect when you’re / the last of your kind / living amongst the / incompetent others / in the light they waste”
Four Minutes to Midnight is proud to announce the publication of its eleventh issue. The double issue features Happy Hour, the final collection of work by American poet FA Nettelbeck (1950-2011), lavishly illustrated by Montreal-based visual artist Sohie Jodoin, and Fugue XI, an epic typographic cut-up poem edited by John W. Stuart, Kevin Lo, Hillary Rexe and Sara McCulloch.
The event kicks off with spoken word luminaries Moe Clark and Vincent Tinguely reading a selection of Nettelbeck’s poems alongside performances of their own work. The readings will be followed by the sizzling Montreal rock trios The Lindbergh Line and Nightwood, who promise to deliver a night of epic songs that just might change your life.
Join us in celebrating the life and work of an exceptional poet, support our local independent arts and publishing community, and witness two of the most exciting acts to grace our stages in the last few years.
