All Hopped Up in Hudson
Yesterday started with a radio interview in Red Hook, ended on the dancefloor of New York’s best new club in a decade listening to DFA’s James Murphy and Pat Mahoney, and incorporated moderating a CMJ panel and dealing with an NYC locksmith somewhere in-between! Today promises more magic and mystery, with music from Manchester in Manhattan and hopefully a couple of movies.
Then tomorrow, Saturday, is an equally big one. I really hope that Hudson Valley readers/friends/acquaintances will join me at the Spotty Dog on Warren Street in Hudson for my 5pm reading/discussion/signing of All Hopped Up and Ready To Go: Music from the Streets of New York 1927-77. I hope you’ll then join us over the road at the PosieKviat Gallery for a reception of the various wonderful artists who have shown there since the gallery’s conception this spring. And I hope you’ll stick around for the DJ set I’ll be playing just up Warren Street at Jason’s Upstairs Bar from 8-10pm, featuring music from the book. All events are free. Choose one, choose them all. And if you can’t make it because of geography, it’s our hope that both the reading and the DJ set will be broadcast on the area’s new community radio station, WGXC.
I look forward to seeing you there.
