Novelist, playwright, screenwriter and Black Clock contributor (issues 7 and 9) Seth Greenland will don the team colors (but not, one presumes, the tools of ignorance) this Thursday, October 14th, at The Mountain Bar (473 Gin Ling Way, Los Angeles, 90012) for Opium Magazine‘s touring Literary Death Match, LDM100. Seth will be starting for Black Clock; his competitors will be fire-baller D.R. Haney (Banned for Life), enforcer Jennine Capó Crucet (author of How to Leave Hialeah) and rebound specialist, actor and playwright Sasha Higgins.
Doors open at 7:30 pm, show starts at 9:15 (sharp). Tickets are $7 if ordered in advance, $5 for students with a valid student ID, and $10 at the door. Cheering is optional, but it is highly recommended that you wear gear to protect your hands, face, elbows, knees and shins. All proceeds are being directed to a good cause: the publication of the anthology Opium100: A Century of Literary Humor.
