Four years and 99 episodes in the making, we welcome you to celebrate the kickoff of a worldwide Literary Death Match tour, celebrating the 100th-ever episode. Judges will pass centurial judgment on a must-see lineup featuring home-run hitters.

David will compete against slam poet Jason Bayani, journalist Kari Kiernan, and rock critic Joel Selvin in a literary "match to the death," the winner to be judged by an esteemed panel of judges: novelist Jane Smiley, cartoonist Mark Fiore, and comedian W. Karnau Bell.

Join hosts Todd Zuniga, Elissa Bassist, Alia Volz, and M.G. Martin for a historic night, with a historical finale you’ll never forget.

$10 advance; $15 at the door Proceeds go to Litquake, the world's greatest week-long literary Lollapalooza.

(David will read the piece he wrote for the San Quentin Literary Throwdown about extreme measures in pain management.)

Doors open 6:30 pm
