tQ's John Doran, John Niven, DBC Pierre and Wydnham Wallace all joining together for night of readings and entertainment hosted by Faber Social

In August, tQ will be joining up with friends at Faber Social to bring you a night called Whisky & Cigarettes, which will involve a gathering of a number of writers for readings, discussions and musings on all manner of subjects.

Our very own John Doran is involved coming, of course, off the black of Jolly Lad from which he will be reading on the night. John Niven, author of Kill Your Friends, is also taking part, while Man Booker Prize-winning DBC Pierre is also lined up. Completing the list of writers is Wyndham Wallace whose first book Lee, Myself & I charts his time spent with singer-songwriter Lee Hazlewood. Wallace says “I’ll be reading from Lee, Myself & I, my memoir about the eight years I spent working with, and befriending, the Chivas Regal swilling, Marlboro Reds chain-smoking Lee Hazlewood, the man behind ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin’’, and so, so much more. I’m pretty certain he would have thoroughly approved of the night’s entertainment. Asides from the smoking ban.”

There will be live music on the evening too from Keeley Forsyth described by co-collaborators the Eccentronic Research Council as “the bastard love child of Peggy Lee and Nico”. It’s all happening on August 17 at The Social and advance tickets can be purchased here. Doors open at 7pm with the show starting 30 minutes later.
