Here's advance warning, if you live in Manchester (but fuck it, don't be put off if you live further afield, we're very welcoming here): on Thursday 27th September, I'm going to be performing at a literature-slash-music event as part of the Didsbury Arts Festival 2012. It's called WORD>PLAY and it's organised by the Flashtag crew. The full line-up is on a poster on their blog. I'll be on stage (reading stories) with a fab band called Monkeys In Love - we're the headline act! Good god. It's free in, though, and I won't be doing any singing, so it should all be fine. We'd all love to see you there!
