Inner Monologues @ Club Apocalypsee

by Ron Hogan

After getting the first draft of my latest article turned in yesterday, I met up with Nadine at an Alphabet City bar called Club Apocalypse, where her friend Alexis hosts a reading series called Inner Monologues that seems to be centered around young, as-yet-unpublished writers. At many of these events, that means wildly uneven quality, but Alexis put together a pretty good roster of writers dealing with the theme "Before the Fall." Plus musical entertainment from Jessy Delfino, whom Alexis fairly accurately described as "a cross between Redd Foxx and Jewel" (although I would've put Suzanne Vega in the second position, myself). And $3 Rheingolds in cans. So keep an eye on Alexis' blog and when she hosts "Scary Stories" in mid-October, you might want to drop by.
