30 December, 2017

Teatro di Affetto and Vegetarian Alcoholic Press are hosting a funeral for the internet!

Wrap up 2017 by celebrating the release of a special Y2K18 post-internet dystopia-themed chapbook while raising funds for the ongoing fight for Net Neutrality. This party will take place the night BEFORE New Year’s Eve.

MUSIC BY: LUXI

THEME: A zany, campy, playfully grim funeral, with dancing, beverages, music, and a wacky celebration of meme culture and bound books. Wear your most theatrical funeral attire, fancy hats, or literary-inspired outfit.

FUNDRAISER: Funds raised will be donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and J20 arrest support.

EULOGY CONTEST: Write your own absurd and over-the-top eulogy for Net Neutrality. You may perform it yourself, or have it performed. Winner will receive an exciting gift from VA Press. (Scroll down for details.)
