University Book Store hosts Dave Mustaine tonight. Mustaine, who was apparently in some kind of rock band or something, will sign copies of his book Mustaine: A Heavy Metal Memoir. Has anybody heard of this guy?

Pilot Books hosts what looks like a lovely group reading tonight. Alexis Wolf, Craven Rock, and Joshua James are three zine-makers. Wolf is the author of a literary zine titled Ilse Content, which is up to issue #9. The impossibly named Craven Rock has written a zine titled Eaves of Ass, which is better than the title would have you believe. And Joshua James makes a great zine called Basic Paper Airplane. This could possibly wind up being the best reading of the week.

And Ralph Metzner reads at Elliott Bay Book Company tonight. Birth of a Psychedelic Culture: Conversations about the Harvard Experiments, Leary, Millbrook and the Sixties is about how the author was there at the dawning of the psychedelic age. Which means he's kind of responsible for Phish.

The full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.
