Jakob Boyd (aka Laundry Man) is a performance poet, visual artist, indi-publisher and gigmaker. Since 2012, Boyd has appeared in events, theatre and festivals in WA, NSW and Victoria including at NYWF, High Tide Fremantle, Southbound, FRINGE WORLD, Perth Poetry Festival, Crack X, HaXa House and in the band ‘Blow Jobs & Growth’.

He’s organised and co-run a myriad of diy events and projects in Perth’s music and poetry communities currently including Dirtymouth Music and Poetry, Perth Slam, Hectic Measures Press and a variety of illegal music parties.
