More Good News

Benefit Party Countdown...

A couple of things. It was just announced that my friend Sasha Fletcher's novella is going to be published by mudluscious. You can read about it on his blog, an ice cold coca cola. Congrats Sasha.

Some other great news is that the summer soiree in benefit of Gigantic, Opium, and Bomb magazines is three days away (VIP performance $10 in advance, $6 general admission at the door). We have a stellar line-up that includes:

-Short plays directed by The New Yorker's Ben Greenman and author/comedian Bob Powers!
-The Dog House Band, featuring bluegrass musician/writers David Gates and Sven Birkerts and special guest John Wesley Harding!
-Joseph Keckler's psychedelic fusion of blues, classic opera, text and film (Keckler pictured above).
-A DJ set by Catherine Pierce of the Pierces!
-A special VIP performance from Kalup Linzy!
