1. Rumpus room.
Hey NYC! Stephen Elliott is hosting a shindig in Brooklyn for his Kickstarter backers and he really wants you to come. Back his new film, Happy Baby, for as little as a buck and enjoy this evening of literary hijinxs, oddball jams, and Eugene Mirman at his hilarious best.
firstpersonsingular:

I am humbled to be somehow (impossibly!) sharing the stage this Thursday evening with: Mike Doughty, Starlee Kine, Eugene Mirman, Jami Attenberg, Kflay, Stephen Elliott and Melissa Febos, whom I’ll be interviewing for a live edition of my Rumpus column, “Conversations With Writers Braver Than Me.” 
It’s a fundraiser for Stephen Elliott’s indie film endeavor, turning his novel Happy Baby into a movie. Contribute as little as $1 to his Kickstarter, and you can attend! (Although the suggested donation is $20. But no pressure…) It’s at 8 at Public Assembly, in Williamsburg.
It’s going to be a great event, and an even greater movie. Please come! And bring friends!
