DC Lit: Come Get Some!:

U Street Music Hall
1115A U Street NW
Monday, April 29th, 2013
7:00pm – 11:45pm | FREE!

On Monday, April 29, five DC-area presses, magazines, and arts organizations will gather at U Street Music Hall for an evening of readings, prizes, and music to celebrate the areas ever expanding independent literature scene. Organized by the good people at Barrelhouse, Big Lucks, Flying Guillotine Press, Lines + Stars, and 826 DC, the event, titled Come Get Some, is an opportunity for Washingtonians to get to know some of the folks involved in DCs indie literary community and to meet other friendly neighbors who spend as much time reading as they do, but who also like to socialize.

Its also a good excuse to drink on a Monday night.

The event will showcase local authors Sean Carman, Amelia Cohen-Levy, Carrie Murphy, and Michael Sheehan. Attendees can win prizes such as copies of new releases from participating journals and presses, as well as tee-shirts and other assorted goodies. Throughout the evening, DJ Patrick Kigongo (We Fought the Big One) will provide music.
