It's been an entire week since we brought you the latest news from the Most Important Literary Magazine Of Our Time. But fear not! We are on the case, and now we bring you word of one of their famed parties, this one in celebration of some pamphlet or other. Oh, and their new issue, which you may have even had the pleasure of unloading from the truck yourself! The party will take place in Tribeca, and it seems as though the party champs at the Paris Review had better watch their backs!
Dear Honored Subscribers,
A month ago we sent out a save-the-date for February 24th. Then our space fell through, and all the other spaces we found were way too expensive, and in short the wholesale re-zoning of the entire metropolitan area into one enormous BANK threatened to keep us from ever having a party again.
But not so fast.
New York subscribers, and all those visiting from out of town, please join us this Saturday night, March 3, at the TANK (not the bank), at 279 Church St. in Manhtattan between Franklin and White to celebrate the launch of Issue 5 and the first n+1 pamphlet: "A Practical Avant-Garde."
Because Manhattan is a crowded place, the party will take place in two segments.
The first, from 9 pm until midnight, in honor of the avant-garde pamphlet, will be conducted in the downstairs space at the Tank while a play goes on upstairs at Collective Unconscious. This segment of the party will be for our more respectable subscribers; wine and beer will be served. Issues and pamphletsand totebags will be on sale.
The second half, from midnight until 4 am, in honor of Issue 5: Decivilizing Process, will be for our less respectable subscribers. Kid Millions of Oneida will DJ. We will have both floors of the space. If we run out of room we will commandeer the palatial offices of the Paris Review, down the street.
Price policies! As always, subscribers get in for a nominal fee ($2); non-subscribers, as always, pay through the nose ($12) until they subscribe ($20). We are raising the price of wine and Brooklyn beers to $1.50, to reflect a price increase from our wholesaler. Sorry. And for the absurdly late notice, sorry. But please come! Who knows when they'll let us do this again.
PS for non-New York subscribers: We are going on tour in mid-April! We will visit New Haven, Providence, Boston, Amherst, Philadelphia—and then we hope to press on to Baltimore, Washington DC, Richmond, and Charlottesville. In the future we will head west. We will keep you posted, and for the moment the latest tour info is on our News page — The Tour Committee
