Salon Gone Wrong: Den of Debauchery

Event Date: 
Thursday, October 6, 2011 - 9:30pm
Venue: 

Hosted by: jojo the Burlesque Poetess Featuring: Broke-Ass Stuart

A merry literary catastrophe and birthday party for spooky Goth-tober babies! Underground legend Stuart Schuffman (aka Broke-Ass Stuart) of Ifc fame will be stopping by on his book tour for "Young, Broke & Beautiful: Broke-Ass Stuart's Guide to Living Cheaply." It's also a soiree for the release of the burlesque poetess's newest poetry collection within a salon for local music favourites: Walter Sickert (who may be trailed by an ARmy of BRoken TOys), Tiny Instrument Revue, Why Are Those Girls So Loud it's 'cos we're jewish, and Craig Robertson. Featuring a reading by Edrie and more! Art, zines, books and music will be for sale.

Stuart Schuffman (aka Broke-Ass Stuart) has been called, "an underground legend" (San Francisco Chronicle), "the Chief of Cheap" (Time Out New York), and a "cult hero" (Wired), but to those familiar with his work, he's just "that douchebag who write books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot."
