6PM CDT on Monday, June 20, in the 1st floor gallery space at Artspace Uptown Artists Lofts in Michigan City. The Literary Underground will host a fundraiser, “Full Moon Lobby Takeover: Trip Closet”, offering live, pre-recorded and streaming author readings, performance art and music! Cash bar courtesy Dark Star of the Dunes. The evening concludes with an open stage invitation—5 minute slots, limited openings. Doors open and sign-up begins at 5:30. Not suitable for children under 16, must be 21+ to drink. Suggested donation at the door is $5. The purpose of the evening is to raise funds to bring diverse voices in creative writing and independent music to Michigan City, specifically to cover travel costs and a small stipend for touring performers. This is in support of a new monthly reading series based in the Uptown Arts District, focused on mingling accomplished contemporary authors across the nation with emerging regional talent and the Michigan City creative community at large.
