We have several unique events lined up to celebrate the publication of Jonathan Lethem’s volume in the series on Talking Heads’ Fear of Music. Each event will combine Lethem reading from and discussing the book with a live band playing Talking Heads classics. Probably not at the same time, but nevertheless, should be a lot of fun.
April 19, 6pm (Thursday)
Rhino Records in Claremont, CA (with Big Mess band)
April 29, 5pm (Sunday)
Skylight Books in Los Angeles, CA (with Big Mess band)
June 6, 7pm (Wednesday)
“A Book, A Band, and a Brew” at Watch City Brewery in Waltham, Mass (with Winterpills band), hosted by Back Pages Books.
(Note that admission fee for this event covers the price of a book and a complimentary drink.)
On another note, the advance copies have just arrived from the printers, which means the book should be in stores and online within the next week or so. In the meantime, the first 23 pages are available as a free preview on the Continuum website here. Just click “preview” beneath the cover art.
