dead (g)end(er) is sendin' some love towards one of the members, Eric Schmaltz, a writer from St. Catharines, Ontario, who will be performing a reading of his work in Toronto tomorrow night for the launch of Incongruous Quarterly's second issue! Congrats, Eric!! If anybody wants to head up to show support, the reading is going to be held at Double Double Land (209 Augusta Ave). Doors open at 8, and the readings are set to begin by 8:30 :) Also, drunk scrabble is promised = going to be awesome!
If you want to know more, click here to see the facebook event page, and I also recommend checking out the Incongruous Quarterly's website-- it looks like a pretty sweet lit mag!
BREAK ALL OF THE LEGS, ERIC! :)
dead (g)end(er) would also like to promote another awesome upcoming event, IndoorShoes Record Label's '100 shows for Haiti' on January 11th at 7pm.
