Tonight at the Someday Lounge, a remarkably good lineup of local authors share works of fiction and nonfiction based on music.

LIDIA YUKNAVITCH, whose memoir The Chronology of Water is a finalist for the Oregon Book Award.

KEVIN SAMPSELL, publisher of Future Tense Books and author of, among other things, A Common Pornography and Creamy Bullets.

COURTENAY HAMEISTER, essayist, filmmaker and head writer / host of Live Wire Radio.

VANESSA VESELKA, writer and musician, whose novel Zazen is up for the Oregon Book Award.

BRAD ROSEN, writer and drummer recently published in The Frozen Moment.

GIGI LITTLE, whose work has appeared in Portland Noir, The Pacific Northwest Reader and lit magazines.

With special guest CYMBALMAN, musician / human-musical-instrument, ready to be played by the audience.

Cymbalman looks like this.


So I can't speak for the man who wears cymbals for a shirt, but otherwise that lineup is really, really good. That's tonight at 7 pm, $5.
