audio at the dollar store

pleased to be starting the year off productively...

tomorrow night i'll be presenting a short story/audio documentary hybrid as part of the monthly dollar store show. the series is curated by jonathan messinger of featherproof books and features stories written/read/performed by a few writers each month. Each story in SOME way incorporates an item from a local dollar store that has been carefully* selected by messinger for the occasion.

though i'm not afraid to acknowledge that this "hybrid" i've created has huge trainwreck potential, on the other hand it just might work, and i'm sure the other writers who'll be reading (nic pizzolatto and rocky russo) will tickle your fancies.

the show's at the hideout, starts at 7 pm and costs a buck. all and all it's not a bad way to get the weekend rolling...

*Immediate impression, after receiving my item.
