Literary Death Match feat. Bae Suah
Join Bae Suah and more for a special Translators Edition of Literary Death Match on Thursday, October 6th, at 7 p.m. at the Shadow Ultra Lounge in Oakland, CA!
Literary Death Match, co-created by Adrian Todd Zuniga, marries the literary and performative aspects of Def Poetry Jam, rapier-witted quips of American Idol’s judging (without any meanness), and the ridiculousness and hilarity of Double Dare.
Each episode of this competitive, humor-centric reading series features a thrilling mix of four famous and emerging authors (all representing a literary publication, press or concern — online, in print or live) who perform their most electric writing in seven minutes or less before a lively audience and a panel of three all-star judges. After each pair of readings, the judges — focused on literary merit, performance and intangibles — take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary about each story, then select their favorite to advance to the finals.

When: Thursday, October 6th, 7:00 pm
Where: Shadow Ultra Lounge (341 13th St., Oakland, CA 94612)
