Reading for Filth – June 1, 2017
Low Rent Readings for a High Rent City!
Hosted by Daniel Nardicio and Brian Butterick (Hattie Hathaway), this is the 2nd Edition of the queer literary series originally founded by the late Dean Johnson, the late Joe Birdsong, and Hattie Hathaway at the legendary Rapture Cafe.
Matthew Rettemund (“Encyclopedia Madonnica”)
Eric Leven (my buddy! and a hairy hunk to boot)
And yours truly!
I went to the first edition, held at Eastern Bloc in Manhattan, and thought I had died and gone to heaven. While I’ve known party promoter Daniel for years, I had never met Hattie Hathaway in the flesh, so after the show I made sure to press a folder of my writing excerpts into her hand while expressing my fervent desire to be included in the next event. It worked!
Please come see us on Thursday, June 1 at 8:00pm at Eastern Bloc/Club Cumming, 505 E. 6th Street. It’ll be gorgeously filthy and riotously funny, I swear.
