RICE PUDDING
So I have some events comin’ up, in case you’re looking for cool stuff to do in Chicago.
M. Bartley Seigel of [PANK] is in town this weekend and doing a reading at Cole’s. I’mma read with him, along with other awesome people who have names that are… Jac “Double J” Jemc, Daniela “Remember When Ska Was Cool” Olszewska, James “Fuck This Guy” Tadd Adcox and Brooks “Don’t Fuck This Guy (But FUCK This Guy)” Sterritt.
Faceborg invite.
On Tuesday is the one year anniversary of Seven Deadly Sins at Cafe Mustache. I will be educating the audience on the subject of envy, which consequently, I know nothing about.
Facebuck it.
And then, as you probably know, I am a judge at Karaoke Idol! Chicago at Beauty Bar on December 12th. This one’s sponsored by RedEye. It should be a shitload of fun. Come and I will buy you a drink.
Macebook evite.
(Also, to be clear, I want people to be mean to Tadd and to have sex with Brooks.)

hey people
I’m reading at this Saturday
this is a poster by Susie Kirkwood
it is a good poster
Anyway, Ray’s Tap is my favorite reading series. It rarely happens. I suggest you go. It’s at a theatre, but you can come and go as you please. It’s a suggested donation, but you can pay or not pay as you please (really no pressure).
Here is the facboreg.
It will be good. It will be good because it’s all my favorite Chicago writers (I am not including myself on that list because I hate me).
So you should go.

Come see me stretch awkwardly in a cardigan while on a stage tonight at The Encyclopedia Show. I’ll be reading a piece about elephant funerals. It will be a happy, fun time! Faceborg event.

The only excuses to not make it to this show are “Sorry, I’m going to the Danny’s reading” or “Sorry, I’m going to the All Hallow’s Eve reading.”

P. Fanatics Reading Series Presents: Why Would Anyone Want to Go to a Reading?

P. Fanatics Reading Series Presents: Why Would Anyone Want to Go to a Reading?

June 10th
Cole’s Bar
2338 N. Milwaukee
7:30 pm SHARP (in fact, get there early, hang out with us, nab a seat)

Why would anyone want to go to a reading? It’s a valid goddamn question, alright. It’s not like music, ya know. When you go to see a band, when you witness real talent, real joy, that’s one thing. Readings though, those goddamn things, they’re a totally different story…

Performers:

Dan Shapiro
Stephen Tully Dierks
Roger Bonair-Agard
Tom Simmons
Cassandra Nguyen
Franki Elliot (maybe???)
Chris Bower
Heiko Julien
and hosted by Mason Johnson

With house band Hawiian Death Folk Presents

So go.

Always looking for future readers for P. Fanatics

Preferably people who aren’t white dudes (though you can suggest those too).

After awhile, you just get tired of other white dudes.

I got a long list of names I pull readers from. Could always make that list longer.

Any suggestions?
