The Octopus Preservation Committee and Power Unit 17 present a day-long benefit for the Octopus Literary Salon, to be held at the Octopus itself on Sunday, July 21. This incredible venue and community space will be forced to move within the year due to an enormous rent increase, and in order to make that transition as smoothly as possible, they need some help. The Octopus has given so much to the local literary and music scenes in terms of space to perform, exposure, support, and just plain good will, and now it’s time to show them some thanks.
12 music acts
Readers include writers from the Octopus’ regular series Babar in Exile, Naked Bulb, Liberate the Caged Voices, Asian Talk Story, There, Pandemonium Press Presents, and Dirty Old Women, along with dozens of others from the community, including a multi-voice performance at 1pm by the writers of Liminal. As well there will be two open mic slots per hour, time permitting.
Each hour from 10am till 8pm will have ten readers, with a brief music act at the end of the hour. From 8pm till 10pm we’ll finish things off with the 21st Century sounds of Preening and Marbled Eye.
