Cry havoc, and let loose the dogs of words!

If you’re at a loose end this evening, Word Dogs, the exhibitionist wing of the Glasgow SF Writers’ Circle will be showing off at The 13th Note, 50–60 King Street from 8.30 p.m. Admission £2 (£1 concessions). As the title suggests, the theme for the evening is havoc. Contributors include Eliza Chan, Michael Collins, Hal Duncan, Mike Gallagher, Mark Harding, Richard Mosses, Phil Raines and Neil Williamson.

Sadly, I won’t be there. Tonight is RSNO Chorus rehearsal night and our next performance is less than a fortnight away, so I have to concentrate on getting my tongue round the Russian text. If you’re interested, the piece we are doing is Prokofiev’s cantata Alexander Nevsky: Usher Hall, Edinburgh (Friday 2nd February) and Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow (Saturday 3rd February). The Friday night performance is being recorded by the BBC, so if you can’t make it to either venue, you can still hear us on Radio 3 (at some future date).
