Literary Mayhem and Rock'n'Roll!
The Most Dangerous Literary Event Ever!!!!
Mike Edison and the Rocket Train Delta Science Arkestra (featuring Jon Spencer) plus special guests Jonathan Ames, Rachel Shukert, and Amanda Stern Invade the Spiegeltent, Oct 16
There has never been anything like this!
Get with it, America! I am taking the Arkestra out for the sickest ride of all... into the heart of a circus tent, fueled by fuzz guitar, fun-house organ, and some of the wildest tales ever told! Riding shotgun are New York's funniest and smartest literary luminaries... and kicking off the festivities no less than Mr Michael Chandler and the first great band of the 21st Century, THE LOST CRUSADERS!!!
This gig is in the round, and is as big as it gets for you humble author. Please come on out and support the literate and pornographic! This promises to be as intimate as it is life-affirming. Expect punk rock, beatnik boogaloo, and bad-ass blues; laughs, thrills, and maybe even an epiphany or two.
"Edison is proof positive that one can be both edgy and erudite, lowbrow and literate, and take joy in the unbridled pleasures of the id without sacrificing the higher mind."
