TA&LSOW&MA IV: goodbye, cruel weather

Dearest Friends:

We are most excited to announce the final Tungsten Arts & Letters Society Outdoor Word & Music Adventure of the season. The theme will be money. There will be readings by Paul Vermeersch and Liisa Ladouceur. There will be music by Bacon of Brunswick (our long suffering house band). There will be snacks and hot apple cider. There will be a baby. There will be no charge.

Please join us on Wednesday October 18 for our bittersweet 2006 finale at the Cloud Garden on Richmond near Bay Street. It runs from 6:30pm and will finish very early, so do not come late. We will look up on the towers and shake our fists at the power structure, and curse the coming of winter, and revel in the joy of our arts. (And letters. And snacks. Where there are snacks, there can be no misery.)

TA&LSOW&MA III approaches

It is our tremendous pleasure to remind or inform you of the third installment of the Tungsten Arts & Letters Society Outdoor Word & Music Adventure, taking place this Wednesday October 4, 2006 at 6:30pm at the speaker’s corner at City Hall. (Please note: it is near the statue of Winston Churchill in the southwest corner of Nathan Phillips Square – not, emphatically NOT, anywhere near CityTV.)

The theme will be politics. There will be a reading of literature by Susannah Daindow, a reading of jokes by Nick Flanagan, and a reading of a speech that the Prime Minister should deliver by host Edward Keenan. Music will be played by our house band, Bacon of Brunswick.

As always, there will be refreshments by Grandma Donna Keenan, this time including hot drinks, if the rumours prove true. Cuteness by Colum Keenan. Unwarranted hype by the Globe and Mail and Toronto Life.

Also as always: membership cards will be available.

Also also as always: there will be no sound system, there will be no booze, there will be no washrooms. And for the first time, please feel free to bring a blanket or folding chair to sit on, as there apparently will also be no seats. The adventure continues!

Also also also as always: the whole thing is free of charge.

We love you, and good night.
