Barrelhouse at KGB Bar TONIGHT

I bet you had a great time last weekend—New Year's eve parties, drinking, kissing, ball dropping. And now your life has returned to it's boring normal. Well guess what New York? We're here to save your social life.

TONIGHT from 7 -9 pm Barrelhouse presents Greg Ames, Paul Hostovsky, Joe Oestreich, Wendy Wimmer, and Jennifer L. Knox!

Come to the KGB Bar at 85 East 4th Street and party like it's still 2006 and you didn't wake up with puke on your shirt Monday morning.

Here's who you'll meet:

Greg Ames lives and works in Brooklyn. His stories have appeared in McSweeney’s, Open City, The Sun, Fiction International, and Other Voices. To learn more visit www.gregames.com

Jennifer L. Knox was born and raised in Lancaster, California, where absolutely anything can be made into a bong. Her work is featured in Best American Poetry 2006, and her book of poems, A Gringo Like Me, is available from Softskull Press.

Paul Hostovsky’s poems appear and disappear widely online and in print, with most recent sightings in Free Lunch, Shenandoah, Poet Lore, Paper Street, Alimentum, FRiGG, Slant, Off the Coast, Phantasmagoria, and Lilliput Review. He works in Boston as an interpreter for the deaf.

For twenty years Joe Oestreich has toured the country in a beat up Ford Econoline as the singer and bass player for the Columbus, Ohio-based rockband Watershed. He has intimate knowledge of the deep-fried truck stop, the wipe-hands-on-pants rest area, and the unholy mixture of beer and bleach and piss that is the eau de rock club. His essays are forthcoming in Esquire, Ninth Letter, and The Cimarron Review.

Wendy Wimmer's writing has appeared in Sassy, Pink and Abundance magazines, numerous literary journals and http://www.productanarchy.com/. She almost used the word "blogosphere" in this bio but managed to restrain herself. She lives in Wisconsin with a man and a cat.

See you there!
