You're Going to Die: Poetry, Prose, and Anything Goes is a monthly explosion of tears, talent, and emotion brought to you by Ned Buskirk at Viracocha in the Mission District of San Francisco. This event was the starting point for Andrew Blair back in the days when the event was held at houses and the Duboce Park Cafe. Blair sang some of his first original songs to the early YG2D regulars, folks in the SF State graduate program for English, poets, artists, and cafe wanderers. Buskirk and Blair's friendship formed seamlessly and with Buskirk's encouragement Blair began writing more songs and testing them out at the monthly event. Buskirk has this to say about You're Going to Die..... "IMPORTANT ::: DON'T TAKE YOURSELF SO SERIOUSLY. Come and have fun. The end. Remember. Someday, we won't exist and neither will the English language. If you choose to take yourself seriously, then take yourself so seriously that it's stupid. Ridiculousness is encouraged."
The event has grown into something extremely powerful, and Blair and band mate Ross Warner look forward to playing it every month, particularly to test out new material. The next You're Going to Die is on December 4th. There is a suggested donation of $10 at the door but NOBODY will be turned away. The money goes toward future YG2D events and publications. Doors at 8pm. Be there to witness the explosions.
