Whiskey Tit Descends in Portland Maine November 15

Portland, we’re coming for you. On November 15, 2016, we will make our Maine debut with a raucous evening of author readings, music, and general mayhem and debauchery at Space Gallery, Portland’s preeminent nonprofit art and performance space.

Topping the bill will be three of Whiskey Tit’s flagship authors:
Brooklyn-based writer/performer/musician Joey Truman will unleash the full measure of his spellbinding magic as he reads and performs with his band Badreamachine; and the Cornell librarian, poet, and sci-fi noir-ist Jon Frankel will captivate all comers as he rants and reads from various works, including his hot-off-the-press post-apocalyptic fever dream, The Man Who Can’t Die. The event will also introduce the newest Whiskey Tit author, Yarrow Paisley, who will be reading from his forthcoming collection I, No Other.

To round out the evening, we’ve invited a couple of Portland’s own local favorites to join our merriment: devastationalist chanteuse Lisa/Liza, whose latest album Deserts of Youth (Orindal Records) earned an 8.0 rave from finicky indie barometer Pitchfork.com; and the deceptively heart-stopping poet (and Black Cat Coffee proprietor) Keith Dunlap, whose recent collection Storyland (Hip Pocket Press) moved Maine’s onetime poet laureate Betsy Sholl to blurb, “Mortality sharpens the vision here into a keen blade cutting through self-enchantment.”

Special thanks to Philip Shelley for coordination and muscle in putting this evening together.
