Do you know that we’ve had six Noir At The Bar events? SIX.
How the fuck did that happen? And why are you people letting us do it again?
For those of you who don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, Noir At The Bar is a reading event that Eric Beetner, Mystery Dawg (we can’t use his real name on account of he’s in witness protection) and I put together every couple of months where we have crime writers come into a bar and read their work to a bunch of drunks.
We’ve had kick-ass authors like Megan Abbott, Duane Swierczynski, Christa Faust, Eric Stone, Sara Gran, Denise Hamilton, Hilary Davidson, Lisa Brackman, Gary Phillips, and more. And we have the bookstore Mysterious Galaxy on hand to sell their books.
Seriously, we’ve had some really fucking impressive talent reading to a packed room full of drunk people in the last year.
And now comes number seven.
October 21st at The Mandrake Bar, ladies and gentlemen. Join us as we welcome Johnny Shaw (BIG MARIA), Owen Laukannen (THE PROFESSIONALS), Greg Bardsley (CASH OUT), Katherine Tomlinson (L.A. NOCTURNE), and Eric Beetner (A BOUQUET OF BULLETS).
Mark your calendars. Sunday, October 21st from 8:00pm to 10:00pm at The Mandrake Bar (2692 S La Cienega Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90034).
We get started around 9 so all y’all can get nice and toasted before we open our big, fat mouths at ya and we’ll have an intermission partway through for those of you with weak bladders.
If you’re in L.A. on October 21st, we’d love to see you out here. It’ll be a blast. It always is.
Number SEVEN. Jesus fuck how did that happen?
