A New Wave of unpretentious exhibitionism is sweeping New York, and Lyrics, Lit & Liquor is at its center. The event will be celebrating its second anniversary on September 30th, two weeks before the deadline of the Second Chance for Rejected Writing of All Genres Contest Deadline of October 14. It’s a scene of unabashed crossover between music, fiction, non-fiction, dream, reality, acting, improv and trivia. The latter will be about visual art this time, so you can add that to the mix. The point is expression with no concern for a digital footprint, the point is to spread the message without spoon-feeding, without being afraid to mix metaphors or repeat yourself, to find the positive in war stories and acting out. Submit your rejected writing below. RSVP for the party above. Or do both at the links just before this sentence.
Santa Claus comes back from the dead and finds an auto-erotic elf at last week’s Comickaze in this endless post about the scene at NYC’s Parkside Lounge:
Jennifer Friedman also performed, and despite missing footage her skills are too impressive to go unrepresented. Here is an older video of some of the songs she played that night:
This post will keep morphing. It will not stabilize, even after Author Amanda Miller‘s Lyrics, Lit & Liquor returns to New York’s Parkside Lounge on July 29, 2014, nor after the one coming up in September. This sentence may not be here next time you look. Nor this paragraph. Nothing may be the same in a week. Or it may remain. I digress. Amanda Miller is the author of One Breath, Then Another, her memoir about her journey to India for yoga training. She is also a hilarious comedienne.
Sebastian Briglia‘s debut at the Parkside Lounge on July 29, 2014, where he will read one of the bits from his novella New Wave and the Art of Heroin Maintenance that were published in Horror Sleaze Trash Magazine. They have published two excerpts. Guess which one he will read from (you’ll find both at the magazine link above). He is also going to play a song. Why would this be of any interest? Because he is a fictional character. And this is his blog. And last time he had something to promote, he posted these flyers all over the New York subway system:
Those of you who avoid going out in New York on weekends already know about the random inspiration you may find bar-hopping in the Lower East Side during the week. I must say, however, way too many of you are crowding around Pianos. Here is a new place for you. Some of you in the know have been to The Parkside Lounge’s backroom.
This is from Author Amanda Miller’s Comickaze Comedy Hour, the last installment of which was on July 10, 2014 at the usual place, Parkside Lounge, where everything was a part of the show, even the cleanup.
