Literary Death Match, Thursday 1/14, 7pm, Chicago

The Opium LDM Chicago is tomorrow, and I have some stiff competition.

Check it out, from the Opium Web site:

The Literary Death Match returns for LDM Chicago Ep. 4, an epic mid-winter battle that will electrify (and thus, somewhat, heat) the Windy City. The fundraiser event doubles as the midwest launch of Opium9: The Mania Issue. See readers James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) representing Featherproof Books, Rebekah Silverman representing Artifice, Andy Farkas representing Subito Press and Davis Schneiderman!

Plus, a trio of all-star judges that includes Kathleen Rooney (featured in Opium9), Girls Guide to Rocking scribe Jessica Hopper and Shawnimals genius Shawn Smith.

Hosted by Opium founding editor Todd Zuniga, co-produced by Paul Albano.

When: Doors at 7, show at 7:30, afterparty: downstairs at 9)
Where: Upstairs at Fizz, 3220 North Lincoln Avenue (map)
Cost: $10 (the first 35 guests will receive a free copy of Opium9: The Mania Issue). Free for Literary Death Match subscribers!
