Lit Love from Lonesome Highway II
This week’s digital reading features excerpts from a handful of hot Indie Pittsburgh pick-ups — i, scorpion (Karen Lillis), Magenta’s Adventures Underground (Carol Lewis), A Zine About Billy (Danny Mac) — and The Dwarf (Pär Lagerkvist), a literary classic from the death metal hinterlands of Great White Europe. There’s a sophisticated feat of basement athleticism at the end of this installment. I challenge all y’all at the next arcade tournament along the tour route. Topeka? Boulder? Salt Lake City? You’re on.
Playlist highlights: Soundgarden, Nirvana Unplugged, Cop Shoot Cop, especially “Ten Dollar Bill”:
Next up: Punks, Zines & Drugs ’til Dawn: High Times in Pittsburgh (you’ve gotta read it to believe it).
