Quiet Lightning + The Rumpus: In Case You Missed It


On July 9th, The Rumpus teamed up with reading series organizers Quiet Lightning for a literary one-night stand at the Balançoire in San Francisco.

Not only were there readings by eight different authors—including special readings by Alice LaPlante and Brandon Brown—but comic Janine Brito and electro-pop band Le Fomo also performed sets.

But if you couldn’t make it, don’t fear! You can watch every performance except Le Fomo’s (it was just too mind-blowing and explosive to post on the Internet) here. You can also read the text for the literary mixtape here.

Paolo Yumol is an intern at The Rumpus. He attends Oberlin College and is very grateful to be doing any of this. More from this author →
