Thanks to everyone who came along to Dungeon Crawl’s Harry Potter extravaganza, Dungeon Crawl and the Deathly Philosopher Prince’s Goblet of Azkaban! It was a huge show, with just over 100 people in attendance (not to mention a lovely review from Crikey). We hope to see you back again soon. If you missed the show, keep an eye out here on the web site – the photos are nearly back from our intrepid picture daemon, Rob Young, and a recap will appear soon.
But this post’s title doesn’t just refer to our mash-up of Dungeon Crawl and the boy wizard, oh no! Because this Thursday, July 21, we’re mixing Dungeon Crawl with another great taste: Geek Mook! Dungeon Mook: Crawl to Mount Geek, the fundraiser event for Vignette Press‘ Geek Mook journal, is only three sleeps away – and we are proud to announce the killer line-up! As well as your regular Dungeon Masters Ben McKenzie and Richard McKenzie, you’ll see returning crawlers Sean Fabri (one of the driving forces behind the upcoming live superhero radio play Bullet) and Xavier Michaelides (star of the MICF award-nominated Future World), plus some of the brightest stars of Melbourne’s literary scene: satirist and podcaster Ben Pobjie (The Drum, The Punch, Gather Around Me), award-winning essayist, author and poet Emmett Stinson (Wet Ink: The Magazine of New Writing), novellist and columnist Meg Mundell (Black Glass), writer and filmmaker Sofija Stefanovic (John Safran’s Race Relations, Beyond Our Ken), and editor and book critic Estelle Tang (Oxford University Press, Kill Your Darlings).
Plus we’ll have a second half of readings from even more talented folk: award-winning poetry slammer Emilie Zoey Baker (who will be performing a new work commissioned by your Dungeon Master about his current nerdy obsession), artist and author Tom Cho (Look Who’s Morphing) and columnist and comics critic Ronnie Scott (The Book Show, The Lifted Brow). It’s going to be one hell of a night!
You can book tickets for the usual, insanely low price of $14 at bellaunion.com.au, or you can buy them on the door for the slightly saner price of $15. We’ll be donating most of the night’s profits toward the costs of producing Geek Mook, and you’ll also have a chance to support them further by purchasing copies of the previous Vignette journals, Sex Mook and Death Mook, on the night.
See you there!
