Verminoid Ben Ehrenreich will be reading Saturday night at Mark Allen's Machine Project Gallery at 8 o'clock. The gallery is located at 1200 North Alvarado just north of Sunset Boulevard. Also, reading are Jacob Forman and Tommy Tompkins, two fine young homo sapiens. Ben tells me that beer will be provided (!), but why not drop by Sav-On for an 18-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon on the way over. It’s only 8 American pesos (!!) and a sure-fire way to make friends.
