Readings by Cesilie Holck, Erlend O. Nødtvedt, Mazdak Shafieian
Concert with Hotel Hotel.
Djs Susanne Christensen, Tommy Olsson.
Cesilie Holck debuted with the book Norg (Aschehoug, 2009). Holck is known from numerous publications, including Kraftsentrum, but also as a singer in the band The Kanossa Gang.
Erlend O. Nødtvedt is editorial member in Vagant and has previously attended Skrivekunstakademiet in Bergen. The collection of poems Harudes (Aschehoug, 2008) is his first book. For this book Nødtvedt was awarded the Young Poetry Prize.
Mazdak Shafieian is editor in Au petit garage and editorial board member of Vinduet. His most recent book is a collection of poems Dyregravsmørke. (Gyldendal Forlag, 2006).
Hotel Hotel is the name of the solo project of Vegard Urne, singer and songwriter with a past as hardcore-enthusiast and blues lover. Urne is a guitarist, drummer, singer and songwriter in the old school country-band Empty Bottles Broken Hearts. He also has experience in the band Ai Phoenix and Hotel Hotel can sound like a kind of mixture of these bands. Hotel Hotel songs like "a glorious summers day, gone bad ...".
The book launch is in collaboration with Norsk Forfattersentrum Vestlandet.
