Hosted by writer/folksinger TJ Kong, Writers Night In America is a monthly event wherein the inimitable host features writers reading, and then chatting. Each writer reads a piece or two, and then Kong conducts a short and snappy interview, chat-show style. For this special 215 Fest edition, Kong will be a house band as he hears from and talks with a wide variety of local and national writers, including Nicholson Baker, Bruce Graham, Sarah Rose Etter, Nicolas Esposito, Jacqueline Goldfinger, Elizabeth Scanlon, Brian Warfield and more.
The house band will be The Can Jam Band. They are a TJ Kong side project that includes the bassist from Kong – Joshua J.A.M Machiz, Alex Maio on drums, Chris Aschman on steel drum and trumpet and Frankie Velardo on guitar and lead vocals. They are a never-ending ball of energy playing the hits like they have been locked inside of a shuttered basement for 25 years.
