This week is chock-full of awesome events, so let’s get to it.
Good Sunday! I’m heading off to the Brooklyn Anthem Bash in a lil’ bit, but first wanted to let you know of this week’s best writings and readings. Which include David Lynch discussing transcendental meditation with his guru. I love this city.
I’ll be reading at the InDigest release party at Le Poisson Rouge on Wednesday, June 8, along with other contribs from the mag. This will be my first public reading in New York.
The bar’s motto: Serving Art and Alcohol. So you know it’ll be a good time.
