‘Us and Them’

The Word Dogs have been loosed again. Their next hunt is scheduled for Wednesday 6th February, at 7.30 p.m. in the 13th Note on King Street, Glasgow (£2 on the door). The theme for the evening is ‘Us and Them’:
Are you with Us? Or are you one of Them.

Differences abound everywhere: political, sexual, economic, racial, religious, cultural, sporting. Entertain Us with the rivalries of siblings, cities, countries, worlds. Shed light on what They are really like, because, frankly, We just don’t understand Them at all. Who is that beautiful stranger? A threat, a rival, an ally, a saviour?

Transhumans vs White Trash, Criminals vs Politicos, Aliens vs The Dead. Aren’t we all the same under the skin anyway? Well we know We are, but They’re not.

By the way, Word Dogs has a nice new website, courtesy of Richard Mosses. I particularly like the subtitle: ‘Biting the hand that feeds Lit’. You can find it here.
