This is how they're describing it: "Teleportal is what might happen if LeVar Burton hijacked the Enterprise's holodeck and brought it to Reading Rainbow for a grownup afterparty." Shit, we're not gonna try to trump that: It's not only funny, it's pretty damned accurate. Listen ~
Local literary lights ~ and lights of other frequencies, too ~ are going to perform some things for you, the cleverness and accuracy of which may well make that Star Trek/Reading Rainbow jibe seem tame or lame by comparison.
. There's Carrie Fountain, gonna be reading from her nationally acclaimed Burn Lake.
There's improv guru Shannon McCormick, gonna be performing a sestina ~ a fucking sestina ~ that he wrote about this panel from Jim Rugg's brilliant funksplosion Afrodisiac.
There's Jonathan Meiburg of Shearwater, gonna be performing a solo set with or without a posse of corvids lurking the rafters.
And, via the miracles of modern technology abetted by Austin Video Bee's Amanda Joy, the poet Timothy Donnelly will share bits of his Cloud Corporation.
And more, you want? Like, what, blood from a turnip? Could be. Might be. Depending on if things are on full crystalline dilithium or just running on impulse engines by that time. At the ND at 501 Studios, of course, at 8pm this night.
