The new issue of my favorite magazine (tied for first with Chicago Review, Jubilat & Petulant Celebs Do Charity Work for the Camera) Circumference
is out. I haven't read it yet because I showed peculiarly strong restraint at St Marks the last time I was there, but luckily there is going to be a launch reading this thursday so I get to pick up a copy there. You should be there as well. The last time I was at the AAWW they handed out free cans of Tsingtao beer, so you never know.

Then here are your plans for Sunday:
Sommer Browning says
I am playing music this Sunday with Sportsman's Paradise!
A seven-man-and-woman-strong army of guitarists will generate a
forty-minute-long blast of psychedelic blissout mash-up with Tibetan
There will also be four screens of hypnotic and luminescent video
How does that sound?
It's free (except it's not. You have to buy $10 in food/drink. They
have good burgers.)
It will be loud.
58 N 3rd St
(btw. Kent & Wythe)
Sunday, December 14, 8pm
I'm going to go to that & then head to Silent Barn
to see Grouper & Kria Brekken afterward. It's going to be a night of freaky, noisy goods.
See? No need to have any plans of your own. Just follow me over the cliff. The water is so beautiful & shallow.
