At Last I Am Born: A Morrissey Birthday Celebration


I have some new public events to announce. All are somewhat unique or out of the ordinary. The first to tell you about takes place on Wednesday May 22, which some of you may know to be the birthday of one Steven Patrick Morrissey. To celebrate, NYC’s top Smiths tribute band The Sons and Heirs are hosting At Last I Am Born: A Morrissey Birthday Celebration, at the Bell House close to my old stomping ground of lower Park Slope, Brooklyn.  I’ll be reading Morrissey-esque excerpts from A Light That Never Goes Out: The Enduring Saga of The Smiths. DJ Matt Heart Spade will be spinning the relevant records, and there will also be a Smiths-inspired congregation of vegetarian food and fashion! Oh, and of course The Sons and Heirs will be performing. (Here’s an idea of the songs you might expect.)

Advance tickets are only $10, available here. There’s also a Facebook event page. I look forward to seeing some of you there.

    an “additional appreciation for the multiple layers of complexities and subtleties that went into their words and music.” Indeed! and the reasons behind their break-up. from someone who saw them in ’86 on their first u.s. tour…thank you for such a wonderful book.
