Free: InDigest Literary Readings August 14 & 17 at Le Poisson Rouge NYC

From a media release - not one but two InDigest readings this month:

InDigest 1207 Reading Series
with Matt Bell, Michael Czyzniejewski, and Robert Lopez
August 14 at (Le) Poisson Rouge
FREE // 7pm

InDigest Issue #21 Launch Party
with Sarah Bridgins, Michelle Cheever, Noah F. Grossman, Monica McClure,
Dana Rossi (Soundtrack Series), Charlotte Seley, Wendy Xu, and more
August 17 at (Le) Poisson Rouge
FREE // 7pm

10 Reasons you should care:
1. Matt Bell and Michael Czyzniejewski are both awesome novelists who are not from New York and you wouldn't want to have missed something this awesome.
2. Matt Bell is the editor of Collagist (lit mag from Dzanc) and the author of the incredible How They Were Found.
3. Robert Lopez is one of the coolest and strangest young writers in NYC.
4. All three of the readers on the 14th know each other from long time ago, so this is going to be like a party and you're invited.
5. The reading on August 17 actually is a party. We're celebrating the August 1st publication of Issue #21 of InDigest, which will features contributions from Richard Buckner, Beirut's Zach Condon, and tons of other great narrative writers, poets, and InDigest columnists.
6. The InDigest issue launch parties are always fun. Lots of people, lots of drinks from The Gallery at LPR, happy's generally a barrel of monkeys. (See what I did there?)
7. Do you see the awesome line-up of contributors for the Launch Party? Awesome.
8. One of the fliers is in 3D. (For real, put on the glasses that are in your desk drawer. I know about them. I promise not to tell anyone you kept those. Whoa. It is 3D, right? Just like the reading, which will also be in 3D.)
9. It makes you feel really smart to know who these authors are, right? Because you know. Right?
10. Because it's August and you're brain is feeling a little fried from time spent at loud outdoor concerts, lying on the beach drinking Coronas, and taking day trips to fancy shoreside towns...and a little mental stimulation couldn't hurt at the end of the summer. (It won't be too stimulating. I promise.)

Happy Freuds - Echo Of Sounds
Independent: May 31, 2019
Stream/Buy on Bandcamp
Stream it on Spotify

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
