The Literary Death Match makes it’s triumphant return to New York tonight, and has a cast of misfits unlike any of the previous lineups I’ve seen.
Mike Edison performing? (Former Vol. 1 Brooklyn Storytelling host) Jena Friedman judging alongside Richard Nash and a fashion blogger? Seriously?

Will Mike Edison condense his normally epic rock n’ roll sermons into three-minute grindcore anthems? Is tonight the night when the Bowery burns?
