So we’re sure you’ve heard the whole “The 90s are back” thing at least once a day for the last six month, and maybe you’re tired of it, or maybe you can’t get enough of it. Maybe you are sitting around holding out that some Pitchfork “Best New Music” mentions Candlebox as an influence. Maybe you’re clutching a Delia’s catalog from the days when Y2K was an actual worry. Or maybe, just maybe, you’re hoping for a bunch of readers to tell 3-Minute stories about the 1990s while you get drunk at Bar Matchless on Wednesday, December 14th door at 7:30PM, event starts at 8.
If that last maybe is you, then you are in luck my friend. Our acclaimed (it really is! Electric Literature said so!) series is back, and we’re jumping on the bandwagon, and bringing you The Greatest 3-Minute Stories About the 90s.
