Tomorrow: Readings from E. G. Bandera-Duplantier’s Bayou Flesh at Khon’s Bar
Fans of The Manichean — or of literary-type things in general — might want to head over to Khon’s Bar (2808 Milam) tomorrow night (Tuesday, July 24th, that is) because Cory Sinclair & Justice Tirapelli-Jamail will both be reading selections from the new book(?) from writer E. G. Bandera-Duplantier, Bayou Flesh.
There’s a little excerpt online over here, for a section called “Brutal Butcher Bayou.” Beyond that and the line from the press release “These stories take place in the terminals of fictional southern-swamps where carnal trees root on death and myth eats reality. They are adapted from Ovid.” I honestly don’t know what it’ll be like, but it promises to be interesting, at least.
Bandera-Duplantier himself will be reading some selections from the book (er, “manuscript”), as will the aforementioned Messrs. Sinclair & Tirapelli-Jamail — singer & guitarist for The Manichean, FYI — as well as Miraida Gutierrez-Colón. It’s free, and it starts at 9PM, so go and listen.
