An announcement via Broooklyn the Borough:
The Scotch Slam 2010 at the Bowery Poetry Club is meant for drunken intellectual types, but anybody can come! Bob Holman and Robert Fitterman host this crew of vagabonds and have matched each writer with a single-malt beverage. You can pick your favorite match at the end, but by that point it might be a tall order. Featured authors include Kriten Prevallet, Steven Zultanski and Matvei Yankelevich. Standout Lonely Christopher of The Corresponding Society is an adventurer of queer politics and cliché. Christopher’s editions of “Gay Plays”, “Satan”, and “Wow Where Do You Come from, Upside-Down Land?” can all be found at Vanderbilt Avenue’s own Unnameable Books if you're looking for a head start. The drinks will be neat, the authors will be drunk, and so will you! Attend in person at 308 Bowery or catch it live online. Get into it and sit down for a warming bevy and some words in the air.
Sun 10 Jan at the Bowery Poetry Club (308 Bowery). $20 to drink $5 to listen sober.
