Arts More on the Miranda July Thing
posted by March 26 at 12:40 PMon
Even though we just announced it and it’s still months away, emails have been pouring in about the Miranda July event The Stranger is putting on at Neumo’s on May 17.
Thanks for the early scoop on Miranda July’s upcoming appearance. I called Neumos where the recording directed me to TicketsWest. I called them and they said Miranda July isn’t showing in their system.
Is there another way to get tix or barring that, do you know when they go on sale at TicketsWest? I’m a
big fan and really want to see her.
Ah, good question. The reason the Miranda July event isn’t showing in TicketsWest’s system is because there aren’t any tickets to the Miranda July event. Like all of The Stranger’s ooey gooey super chunky double stuff literary happenings—actually, like almost everything magical The Stranger does—it’s free.
Though if you’re “a big fan” you’d be smart to arrive early—like, already be waiting when doors open at 7 pm. At the Jonathan Safran Foer event at Chop Suey a couple years ago, we had to turn away more than a hundred people.
July will read from her first book of short stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You, followed by a live interview. Who will the special guests be? The whole lineup isn’t set, but it will include Becky Stark from Lavender Diamond, “Awesome” (the official band of Stranger literary events), and possibly another music act. Plus, there will be dancing. It will be quite the party. Rent a costume or something.
