BOMB’s Winter Party!

First, watch Touching the Art.

Amazing, right? Good news! Casey Jane Ellison is hosting BOMB’s big end-of-the-year blowout.¬†And! Magik Markers is playing. Oh man. When “Body Rot“first appeared I had it on repeat for six months.

Putting this together has been the best part of my job lately. I’m so damn excited. The full details:

BOMB’s Winter Party
Friday, December 18
Pioneer Works
Hosted by Casey Jane Ellison
Music by Magik Markers
DJs Chances with Wolves
Cocktail Hour Hosts Jem Cohen, Lynne Tillman, Ben Lerner, & David Grubbs

Get a ticket! It comes with plenty of free drinks. And since the party’s a fundraiser to pay our writers and artists, the whole thing’s tax-deductible. Make your imaginary accountant proud.
