Literary Death Match Edinburgh

You may all have got my invite on Facebook, but here’s details of the gig on the 12th. I’m looking forward to this, although I’m slightly more keyed up than I usually would be (normally I’m only ‘judged’ in the sense of someone buttonholing me after a gig, and normally they don’t do that if they thought I sucked). I don’t know if anyone normally thinks of themselves as a ‘stalwart.’

Literary Death Match Edinburgh – Voodoo Rooms, 12th March

In our first UK show since our game-changing TV pilot shoot, Literary Death Match returns to brilliant Edinburgh (and more specifically: Voodoo Rooms) for a lights-out night of never-ending wonderment that will life-change, titillate, entrance and edumucate. Click above to get discount advance tickets and guarantee your 12th will be spectacular. We cannae wait! 

The night will feature four writers reading their own love/anti-love stories for seven minutes or less, judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists will be chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game that will steal your affection. 

PLUS! If we can figure out how to work a projector, we’ll show the first-ever footage from LDM TV: The Pilot — which will make your brain/heart explode in the best possible way.
