Okay, here goes- an attempt to successfully convey via a blog post the pure joy that is an Eileen Myles reading. She’s been giving a lot of readings for her most recent work, Inferno (mindblowingly good) and is teaming up with Emily Gould and Lauren Waterman at Cake Shop on December 15th. The doors open at 7PM and the event is completely FREE.
While I’m at it, I’d like to take this chance to put in a plug for Cake Shop. Their consistently low prices for cozy live shows, delicious cupcakes, and record shop in the back make this one of my favorite music venues in NYC. I’ve seen some rad shows there, such as the city’s own Secret History and Stupid Party, and have never had to pay more than $7 or $10. So support them, ’cause they are way supportive of us artists, musicians, punks, activists, and sweet toothed individuals!
