Ten years old isn’t much for a tree. A ten-year-old religion hardly even deserves to be called one. But for a website? Ten years is ancient. It’s venerable. It’s wise. And this year, Killing the Buddha turns ten. Time to party.

That’s why, on December 7th, KtB is putting on a Tin Anniversary Spectacular at the Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’ll feature a Decadent Decalogue of performances by friends of the magazine new and old, including Gangstagrass (“serious bluegrass picking and sick flow on the mic”), Gabriel Kahane (New York Magazine Critics’ Pick), comedian Eugene Mirman (“the world’s most famous Eugene-named entertainer”), Eileen Myles (author of Inferno, a poet’s novel), Rev. Osagyefo Uhuru Sekou (of the Fellowship of Reconciliation), Bitch, and others.

There will also be Buddha-killer drink specials, 6-word testimonies, a DJ afterparty, and unmentionable surprises. KtB editor Quince Mountain (Worldwide College of Auctioneering Class of ’96) will officiate over a live and silent auction.

All proceeds go to Killing the Buddha, which has always depended on reader contributions, so that it can support more exemplary writing and continue to bring people together offline at live events around the country.

On November 13, 2000, Jeff Sharlet and Peter Manseau launched Killing the Buddha with a quartet of odd, uncomfortable, beautiful essays. By 2001, Utne Reader heralded it one of “15 sites that could shake the world.” Since then, we have been publishing commentary, journalism, reviews, fiction, art, and more. CNN reported just this past year, “Killing the Buddha makes religion interesting again.”
