Provocative headlines aside, tonight's reading is going to be awesome. Housefire, that local independent publisher of ill repute, will host a reading at the Jack London bar. There will be a selection of films by Jean Painlevé from Science is Fiction and Housefire editors, founders, and pretty much entire staff will read pieces. That's Lindsay Allison Ruoff, Robert Duncan Gray, and Riley Michael Parker. They'll be joined by special guest and contributor Kirsten Alene Pierce. Only people with three awesome names need apply. The night will wrap up with a performance from the band Curious Hands.

The event begins at 7 pm. There is a suggested donation of $5.

The Jack London bar is located at 529 SW 4th Ave. It's underneath the Rialto. You have to enter the Rialto get there. I can't stress this enough. Look for the sign on the street if you're confused.
