Entry: $15, which includes a free copy of dotdotdash Issue 4: 'Antimatter'
dotdotdash is celebrating the release of it's fourth issue! The latest edition, themed Antimatter, features works from nationally acclaimed writers such as A.S. Patric, Peter Macrow and B.R. Dionysius; international artist Robert McGowan, up-and-coming local talents Bo Wong and Tessa Maloney, as well as interviews with Alisa Krasnostein, manager of the Aurealis Award-winning Twelfth Planet Press; Stephen Dedman, owner of Fantastic Planet bookstore; and K.A. Bedford, author of Time Machines Repaired While-U-Wait.
Our launch party is hosted by the amazing Tomas Ford and the night features live music from Sonpsilo Circus and Shock Octopus, plus spoken word performances from Scott-Patrick Mitchell, Vivienne Glance, Annamaria Weldon and Brisbane poet B.R. Dionysius. There will also be a special appearance from the Perth Zine Collective and Bo Ra, the dexterous seamstress who will create little furry monsters on request.
There will also be costumes! Dressing up in full Speculative Fiction garb (whether fantasy, sci-fi or horror) gets you $5 off the door price.
All spoken word performances will be recorded for potential inclusion in our upcoming sixth issue, Jukebox. Jukebox will be released with a CD of local music and spoken word in collaboration with Spaceship News. If you are interested in performing spoken word on the night, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before Thursday 1 July.
Made of matter,
The dotdotdash crew
