Saturday 18th of March, Mathas and Don Smith!

It’s two great features, Mathas and Don Smith, this Saturday 18th March 2017 at Perth Poetry Club.

Mathas has somewhat cartoonishly rapped on stages around Australia for well over a decade. A locally loved visual artist, poet, producer and performer, Mathas spends an unhealthy amount of time pursuing detail in his lyricism. The subjects he chooses for his stories are often uncomfortable reflections on Australian society but he does his best to inject a bit of comedy into the code to lighten the mood.
