Do you feel a void in your life left from both the cancellation of MTV’s Celebrity Death Match and your no longer taking literature classes? Then get your fix of words and fighting in one night with Opium Magazine’s Literary Death Match. The series has four up and coming writers read their funniest and most eccentric work for a panel of judges who pick two finalists to battle in the final round. Opium describes it as blending def jam poetry’s performance aspects with Double Dare. While they didn’t specify if there would be green slime, tomorrow night’s holiday lightening round show are features readings by Elna Baker (The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance), Terese Svoboda (Capital City) and James Yeh (Gigantic magazine editor) at tomorrow night’s show. Oh, and it’s completely FREE.
