TSLR Presents Spit-Tunes in Collaboration with Spittoon Literary Magazine

TSLR Presents Spit-Tunes in Collaboration with Spittoon Literary Magazine. 


A Poetry and Music Collaboration Performance, Brought to you by Spittoon Collective & The Shanghai Literary Review

Spit-Tunes, first launched by Spittoon Collective in February 2017 in Beijing, is an event where artists and bands from different genres are paired together to collaborate with writers and poets. For our April 19th rendition, the first in Shanghai, musicians and bands have selected the poets and writers they wanted to work with after an open call sent forth by The Shanghai Literary Review. After the partnerships were made, the musicians and writers worked together for a month to create a special collaboration song based on the musicians' and writer's individual styles.

The result will be a night of poetry and music performances (each poet will read separately read works, and each musician/band will perform their music), as well as the debut performances of the original songs composed by each poet-musician pair. 

We look forward to seeing you there for a great night of hybrid artistic celebration.
