Get Your Vermin On Tomorrow Night @ Mountain Bar

Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The vermin are back this weekend as Jim Ruland's must-attend night of readings, Vermin on the Mount, features four indie writers tomorrow at 8pm @ Chinatown's Mountain Bar:

  • Jim Krusoe, who teaches fiction at Santa Monica College, will read from his just-out Girl Factory which we highlighted not so long ago for its wacky incoroporation of LA yogurt culture.
  • Sean Carswell, novelist, short story writer and publisher, will read from Train Wreck Girl.
  • Tosh Berman, publisher of Tam Tam books, will read from Boris Vian's The Dead All Have the Same Skin.
  • Dicky Murphy, who writes for television, will read from his collection World Cup Eagle.

Indie writers + alcohol + celebratory cake? Embrace your inner vermin and enjoy.
