Lip Service West: East Meets Left
It's official! The original Lip Service folks (Andrea Askowitz and Esther Martinez) are flying out (along with Dr. Sean Kenniff, who is so popular he has his own fucking Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sean_Kenniff) for this year's Litquake extravaganza (http://www.litquake.org/). Couldn't be more excited.
I'm so excited, in fact, that I am going to do something I rarely do: actually read at a Lip Service West event, which I stopped doing a while ago, since reading at the same event your producing is tantamount to throwing a surprise party for yourself (not that there is anything wrong with that, Andrea and Esther!).
Seriously, this is going to be fucking awesome. (Or as the kids say "off the hook.") Don't know the exact location yet, but it will be somewhere in the Mission, probably on Valenica Street, in some seedy bar. I've put together the dirtiest, most degenerate SF-based writers I know (including myself), which will be contrasted nicely with the Miami sunshine, neurosis, and all-around pop culture goodness.
I do have the date and time. October 15th, 6:30-ish.
Here are the lives of each reader, whittled down to 25 words.
Hope you can make it. These are some of the best writers (and people) I know. Don't miss it. (And, yes, there will be free hot dogs.)
