Check out their recap of the night’s revelry here. Here’s a snippet:
“BOMB Magazine with Gigantic and Opium magazines hosted an end-of-summer bash at Bowery Electric featuring a musical performance by a drag queen, two short plays, and another musical act that consisted largely of a guy speaking (rhythmically) to the audience about a dream he had, set to music. So of course, this means we need to talk about one thing: wolves. Or, in this case, ‘werewolves.'” ~ Scallywag and Vagabond
In case you missed our earlier post, the Observer also ran a great review of the night.
Much thanks to our performers and to all who attended! As well as to those who ran pre-press for the event and helped promote the evening including: HTML Giant, The New Yorker, Black Book, ARTmostfierce, [THING], The Daily News, and anyone who posted who we may have missed.
To join in the next Gigantic literary bash, stay tuned for news about our upcoming Issue II launch party!
