Live at the Literature Lounge

This amazing poster was designed by the amazing Katelan V Foisy

So we finally have all the details through of what promises to be our most exciting gig to date (notwithstanding the day after we will be announcing a VERY special event).

On May 20th, we have the double privilege of being hosted by one of London’s biggest literary nights, the Literature Lounge at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden, home of the National Poetry Society and of collaborating with the utterly awesome Knickerbocker Circus from New York.

The event will comprise readings (see below for programme), and also an interactive typewriter installation similar to the one hosted by Knickerbocker Circus last summer. You can let your imagination free to do what it will on one of the old-style typewriters that will be dotted around, and watch the results become art before your eyes. Also contributing to the night’s art will be the fantastic London-based artist and friend of Year Zero, Sarm.

Katelan V. Foisy: a visual artist, writer, model, and tarot reader based out of NYC.  She is known as La Gitana, likes strong coffee, and enjoys dressing like a character out of Carnivale. Katelan is featured below on the cover of teh collection Lilith, which will, incidentally, be the subject of a flash-gig she will be holding in Oxford during her stay (details next weekend).
