sat., aug. 15th, 7pm, new london, organized by hygienic art + drunken boat, held in the aardvark, a "a multi-media bash" an "anniversary celebration" for/of drunken boat, "a decade-old online literary journal."
the what what from hygienic's site:
"Headlining Mat Bevel, from the Surrealistic Pop Science Theatre in Tucson, AZ and the maestero of 'a gizmotronic fanfare of spunk, funk and kinetic junk,' and featuring rare video footage of Charles Olson, father of the Maximus Poems and the Black Mountain School, Harlem native and vocal deconstructor Latasha Natasha Diggs, Guggenheim Fellow and stereoscopic projectionist Zoe Beloff and New London's own native son, novelist and frequent contributor the New York Times, Richard Rand Cooper, among others. Share drinks and a memorable evening of literary alchemy and intermedia performance."
a slightly different but equally dubious what what from the new haven advocate:
"Mat Bevel from Tucson's Surrealistic Pop Science; a rare film of the late modernist poet Charles Olson; vocalist/dialectician Latasha Natasha Diggs; eclectic myth-fueled author/translator Adam Golaski; music-savvy poet Larissa Shmailo; new media artist Steve Ersinghaus, mainstream-friendly writer Rand Richards Cooper, plus a short film by stereoscopic projectionist Zoe Beloff."
+ last, from the drunken boat site, announcing the addition of another performer:
"Sabina Murray is the author of the novels Forgery (Grove, 2007), A Carnivore’s Inquiry, and Slow Burn. Her short story collection The Caprices was the winner of the 2002 PEN/Faulkner award. ...Associate Professor of English, Creative Writing, at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst."
we at flim forum press have come to doubt the veracity of all this infromation.
