CONFLICT OF INTEREST! CONFLICT OF INTEREST! But eh... whatever. Onward!
So a few months ago, Alison and I put on an event called Comics Underground. Held at the newish bar the Jack London, located in the basement of the Rialto (529 SW 4th), it featured readings/performances from local comics creators, impromptu live musical accompaniment, and live sound effects (like a bottle scrounged from the bar that got smashed when a window broke in the comic). There were also drinks, and comics, and laughs. Oh, the laughs!
Anyway, we're doing it again tomorrow night, and based on the advance stuff I've seen so far, it's gonna be great. We'll have readings/performances from:
• Jamie S. Rich, Joëlle Jones, and Nicolas Hitori De (Spellcheckers)
• Kelly Sue DeConnick (Osborn, Girl Comics, Rescue)
• Natalie Nourigat (Between Gears, Over the Surface)
• Greg Rucka (The Punisher, Queen & Country, Batwoman)
Admission's free, it starts at 8 pm tomorrow (Thurs Sept 22), and if the last one was any indication, you might want to get there a bit early to snag a good seat/get boozed up beforehand. More info about the event and the above creators can be found right here.
Okay, end of shameless self-promotion. I now return you to your regularly scheduled Blogtown programming.
