Come out, come out where ever you are. Come see:

Michael Hermiston

Jim Munroe
Jim Munroe is a "pop culture provocateur", according to the Austin Chronicle. After the HarperCollins release of Flyboy Action Figure Comes With Gasmask (praised by people as diverse as Naomi Klein and Neil Gaiman) he chose to release his following books (Angry Young Spaceman, Everyone In Silico) on his own imprint No Media Kings as a statement against Murdoch-style consolidation. He's touring with his new novel An Opening Act of Unspeakable Evil, a tale of the urban occult made up entirely of blog entries. "It has all Munroe's trademark charm, his wonderful, rueful fondness for his own characters, and a genuine mystery: is Lilith a demoness or isn't she?" --Georgia Straight www.nomediakings.org
Alexis O'Hara

Alexis O'Hara is a non-disciplined, trilingual artist who paints elaborate soundscapes and stories using nothing more than her body, a microphone and a series of electronic pedals. A former poetry slam champion and newspaper columnist, she is an avid road dog and has toured Canada, the US, the UK and Europe. She has published books of poetry and her first full length recording can be found at www.grenadinerecords.com. Her own website is www.dyslex6.com
By exploiting pseudo-virtuosities in verbal, gutteral and technological melodies, LX6 engages in spontaneous sound and body combats, reverberating the essential absurdities of life.
