Literary Death Match slays words tonight
Happy hour kicks off the event, and runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. LTM watchers are invited to get there early. At 8:15 p.m. the competition begins. Authors will perform their best work in 7 minutes or less; winners head on to the next round. Reading this evening will be Maggie Ryan Sandford, RockStar Storyteller Curt Lund, The Cigar-Maker author Mark McGinty, and Dessa from hip-hop collective, Doomtree. Each will be judged by a panel of chatty judges including haiku artist Brian Beatty, journalist (and City Pages alum) Molly Priesmeyer, and the always hilarious Joseph Scrimshaw.
The event will be hosted by LDM founder Todd Zuniga and pub quiz master Rob Callahan. Tickets are $6 presale, or $10 at the door ($5 for students with I.D.). Doors open at 7 p.m. (though you can obviously show up earlier). Clubhouse Jager is located at 923 Washington Avenue North in the Loop area of Minneapolis. For more info, visit LiteraryDeathMatch.com.
