Friday at THCBTP (chaps and chops)

Hey, London! This Friday (19 August) from 18:00 head to The Haircut Before the Party at 26 Toynbee St. E1, where you are invited to celebrate the opening of THCBTP Salon Reading Room and PDF fileshare station, as well as to launch the first in a series of chapbook publications, edited by THCBTP.

The chapbooks presented at this event (including one by yours truly) are short text-based publications that aim to further explore ideas raised within the salon. They are:

'An Introduction to Becoming' by anon (read here)
'Communicative Action: A Dialogue' by Evan Harris
'My Soul At Work: Following Bifo with the help of Depeche Mode' by Eleanor Ivory Weber
'The Trial of Lewis Blisset, a ballad', by Ali Bucron

In addition, during the event, Irish writer Michael Harding will present a script in ten parts to be performed on the evening, drawing on extracts of selected texts from the THCBTP collection. And local writer, Gerry King, will be reading from his book Lubin Tales, a collection of short fictions that incorporate photo-collage and linguistic invention into their tales of provincial misdeeds.

At the same time, you can browse through thousands of PDF's using the THCBTP fileshare (print-by-donation or BYO USB). Plus the salon will be open for free haircuts on Friday as per normal, from 12:00 until readings commence at 18:00. Allez-hop, chop-chop!
