The Whisky Dregs is so fucking proud to present our free reading and music event, BLACK INK on Saturday, April 10, 2010 at ANGELS and KINGS.
I like to yuck it up with friends and sometimes they’ll ask me how the name of this online publication came about. I can’t remember but one promoter friend and I were celebrating after a meeting for an event in Brooklyn when, in the midst of drinking and dancing with art-lovin’ beauties, he yells out, “Someone should write about this.”
I agreed with him and started an online lit and arts magazine. Now, a bunch of years later, The Whiskey Dregs is going back to the party from which it came.
We’ll be introducing the readers through a series of Q&As that will appear on The Whiskey Dregs.
There will be a reaffle for Tony O’Neill’s latest book (co-written written by The Runaways’ Cherie Currie), Neon Angel: The Cherie Currie Story as well as another surprise prize.
Here is a list of authors and performers:
Stephen Elliott (Adderall Diaries: A Memoir of Moods, Masochism, and Murder, published by Graywolf Press and editor of The Rumpus)
