All Things Considered correspondent Andrei Codrescu is this month’s guest and Codrescu’s new book, The Posthuman Dada Guide is perfectly timed too, as The Late Now celebrates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dada in Zürich, Switzerland.
There’ll be a remote interview with the folks at the restored Cabaret Voltaire, the dada cradle rock a bye rolly on tap, as well as a Dada Game Show with Codrescu, extreme audience interactivity and live music in multiple languages by unstoppable Late Now Grand Crü Band.
The loqucious wit and good cheer of the host most irreverent, Leo Daedalus is the thread running through it all and the very shape of the air will be forever altered again beginning at 8 pm.
Dinner is at 6:45 pm and there are two dinner ticket options – a “show only” option too. The seats are limited, the people will laugh, the walls will shake and advance tickets are strongly recommended.
