The 75th monthaversary brings the paean
It's gonna be a night of clashing titans, albeit sans kraken, as L.B. "Laughing Boy" Deyo takes on Kurt "The Perfesser" Hildebrand in a no-holds-barred Texas Death Match Debate at the 75th presentation of the monthly Dionysium!
Well, no, it's not an actual to-the-death match, and the only thing really Texas-y about the event (aside from its Alamo Drafthouse South location) is the large amount of wine-imbibing that will attend the spectacle. But, oh, it will be a spectacle, brain-fans, as these two mental giants argue it out to decide, once and for all, if "ideas exist, independent of things." We mean, that was a great idea, Plato, and we're gonna let you finish, but ....
But that's not all! As with the past 6½ years' worth of Dionysiums, this night's heady antics will be hosted by that same (possibly triumphant, potentially devastated) Deyo and the ever-witty Buzz "Foleyvision" Moran and will include a lecture, a screened animation presented by Lance "Fever" Myers, the keyboard stylings of maestro Graham Reynolds, and more.
They say that knowledge is power; they say that the truth shall set you free. We say, "Drink up, citizen, and raise a toast to Dionysus as the intellectual donnybrook rumbles on!"
The Dionysium will be held Wednesday, Aug. 4, 7pm, at the Alamo Drafthouse South, 1120 S. Lamar. For more information, visit www.dionysium.com.
