MR EUGENE ROBINSON of the mighty OXBOW will be doing a presentation from his acclaimed book FIGHT at the JAM CAFE on Hockley (opposite Hockley Grill).
This promises to be an amazing event. Have a read about Eugene's book and research into ass-kickery here:
As anyone who has witnessed OXBOW live can confirm, Eugene is one of rock music's most unique and compelling performers. What's not often mentioned (though should be apparent from his lyrics) is the sharp wit and incisive intellect that makes the FIGHT book such an entertaining read and will make this evening an unforgettable audience experience.
As if that's not enough, author CHRIS KILLEN will be reading from his Canongate novel THE BIRD ROOM
Have a read of what The Guardian thought of it here:
Not only that, we also have JACK LANTERN of Human Hair infamy doing some spoken word to kick things off.
This is the first spoken word show we've done, we like the idea of it. It's also the first time we've used the lovely Jam Cafe so come along and support it.
It's worth pointing out this occurs the same night as Man Utd V Arsenal in the Champions League. That will be done by 9.30 and so we will start a little later than normal to accomodate anyone interested in both football and fighting.
See you there.
