If you live in or near New York City, you should hasten to buy a ticket to next Tuesday evening’s WYSIWYG event:
I will be singing a song I’m writing (here, you should understand “writing” to mean “vaguely considering thinking about beginning to try to have an idea or two for”), and many other fine bloggers will be reading.
The name comes from the fact that this is the one-year anniversary of the WYSIWYG talent show. It’s been run thrillingly every month by the sexy triumvirate of Chris Hampton, Andy Horwitz, and Dan Rhatigan. The show has deservedly developed quite a following by presenting readings of consistently high quality.
And, hey, if I can figure out what the hell I’m going to write, it’s entirely possible I won’t ruin their track record.
I have faith in you!
Oh, to be in New York…
Are audience members allowed to roll their video cameras? If so, I will pay anyone to make me a CD/Tape. With both Faustus (whom I’ve never seen perform) and Prettygirl (ditto), there is no way I could ever die happily without seeing this.
You make it sound so good, I would love to see it!
You’re welcome to tape, but I’d suggest you ask the performers beforehand if it’s okay with them, and then only tape the ones who give you their okay.
We’ll also try to tape, and if we do we’ll have clips up on the WYSIWYG site.
