Just when we thought we’d edited our event poster for the final time and squeezed the laaaaast bit of info on there, we have a great reason to shift Photoshop layers around and search for even stumpier fonts: Legs McNeil and Gillian McCain are going to join our ensemble this Sunday at A Rrose in a Prose!
Gillian McCain and Legs McNeil are the co-authors of the internationally renowned Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk and the newly released Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose. When they aren’t collaborating, McCain writes poetry and McNeil writes non-fiction. They are currently working on a new oral history of the 1960’s music scene in Los Angeles, titled Sixty-Nine.
What’s crazy is that the two coolbots above could ALONE make for an amazing afternoon of literature and fawning. (And they have, if you remember their live interview at this year’s L.A. Zine Fest!) But there are so many more amazing authors and poets at this event. Plus there’s a secret band, a bunch of dadaism, an open mic, tons of zines, writing workshops hosted by ZZyZx WriterZ, and more and more and more and more and more and just BE THERE, you scumbuckets! Otherwise, Kojak might hurl an epithet at you.
