Pete’s Mini Zine Fest – July 8

I’ll be making my way back to Brooklyn for Pete’s Mini Zine Fest on July 8 with a brand spankin’ new ish of the East Village Inky, in addition to a bunch of back issues and books! Wahoo! Buy me a beer?


One Night Only: How to Kill An Elephant

I kind of feel like letting the beautiful image below speak for itself. Suffice it to say I’ll be appearing in a one-night only sneak peek of How to Kill an Elephant, a work-in-progress by CB Goodman. It’s free! Yes, there are cardboard wigs, and though it’s only half an hour long, there’s a really porn-y monologue, so leave the kids at home! In-house bar! Wahoooooo!
