By Maddy KeavyREADING: We're in the dawn of a new era when internet writing is finally getting the attention it deserves. This afternoon the excellent news site TheEastsiderLA.com is hosting a reading based on the completely original work of its commenters. The themes of these unmoderated comments range from frustrations with parks to traffic to angst (so much angst!) over gentrification. The Eastsider has collected samples from the comment section of 2012 in "Unmoderated: A Reading of Eastider Comments." The premiere begins at 2 p.m. at the Taix Lounge located on 1911 Sunset Boulevard. The live-reading will be performed by readers and directed by Rory Mitchell. Admission is free, and more information can be found at The Eastsider LA.

FOOSBALL: Tonight is the 1st Annual Everloving Cup Foosball Tournament. It is being held at the clothing store Feal Mor in partnership with the independent music label Everloving. Feal Mor invites guests to the tournament that will be going from 7 until 10 p.m. Feal Mor is offering single or double registration for the tournament if you e-mail info@fealmor.com, but walk-in registration at the door is also available.
