Ever been sitting in traffic daydreaming and gotten a nose full of Toyota Hilux, and thinking: Damn, life sucks? We don’t want you to ever feel that way. But if you are feeling like 30-year-old pickup exhaust on the back of a watermelon truck doing 10 on the highway to Astromeritis, you seriously need to join us on 29 May for a night of spoken word.
