The Agony of Undefeat


Our friends at WRITE CLUB SF are hosting their awesome monthly event tonight, so go if you have the chance!

“The Agony of Undefeat (Special XL Edition!)” will feature 8 WRITE CLUB SF champions duking it out, with only 4 left undefeated. There will be:

4 rounds of
2 writers with
2 opposing ideas for
7 minutes each

The audience decides who wins, and the winner’s charity gets some money. (So, really, everyone wins!)

August’s topics are:

Fame vs. Fortune
Past vs. Future
Fact vs. Fiction
Length vs. Width

The show will feature the written stylings of Katie May, Ignacio Zulueta, Adriana Valencia, Max McCal, Geordie Martinez, Justin Goldman, Gabriel Cubbage, and Heather Dean.

Doors at 7pm/show at 8pm/dancing and music at 9:30pm. Tickets are only $5—so cheap, it’s criminal!—and can be purchased in advance. And, as always, this night of “literature as bloodsport” will be held at The Make Out Room (3225 22nd St., between Valencia and Mission).
