So, Open Mic is on at Punchi Theatre (Borella, near junc) tonight. It’s hard to miss, it literally looks like it was built by termites, near the Lido Cinema. I was stressing the fuck out but things kinda settled. We can hang out in the rehearsal room upstairs. Jan will make some gal arrack tea and pick up some wade from the street in Rajagiriya. You can read or listen or whatever. Dinidu is reading something, as is Halik and I think Ryan and a few other people for sure. Regardless, Jehan and Tracy and I have enough filler. I have some poems, and I just finished what I suspect is a deeply offensive column for the Sunday Leader, so I can read from that. If you are interested or have something you think might be interesting do come. There’s a Facebook event here. If you can’t find the place Cerno has geotagged it.
This event is honestly damaging my personal relationships and causing me to lose sleep. However, I do believe that it is vitally important, at this time, to actually practice free speech. Not even in a political sense, just in a fun/funny/whatever sense.
There is a bit more info and videos here.
