From the press release:

"Opium Magazine's signature competitive reading series comes to Syracuse: the pilot episode of LDM University will double as a pre-launch party for the magazine’s eighth print issue. The event, hosted by Opium founder Todd Zuniga, will feature 8-minute-or-less readings by Roy Kesey, Dan Roche, Mi Ditmar and Alexander Yates, all judged by Phil LaMarche, Christopher Kennedy, and Elizabeth Koch. Venue: Ambrosia. Date: Friday, June 5. Time: 7:30 p.m."

It would not be an exaggeration to say that this is the most important event of any kind that has ever occurred, except possibly that one thing that happened with the tractor. Remember that? That was nuts.
