Music from the Streets of New York @ 92Y Tribeca this Thursday
This Thursday, January 14th, I’ll be promoting All Hopped Up and Ready To Go: Music From the Streets of New York 1927-77 at the esteemend 92Y’s lovely Tribeca location. Rather than simply reading from the book, or conducting an interview with one of the featured musicians, I’ll be presenting a “talk” based on the book, as part of the 92Y’s “All Things New York” Daytime Series. That means bringing along some music, some photographs, and synthesizing my 400-page book into a 40-minute discussion – allowing time for Q&A afterwards.
This marks the first time I’ve been booked for a “talk” (I have an aversion to the word “lecture” just as I do the term “rock critic”) and while it’s somewhat daunting, I am certainly looking forward to it… all the more so if I can have some familiar faces in front of me. The 92Y Tribeca charges $16 for these talks, but if you know me and know my e-mail, get in touch and I’ll try and comp you.
That’s Tony Fletcher discusses “Music From The Streets of New York,” this Thursday January 14, at the 92Y Tribeca, 200 Hudson Street, right off Canal, 12:00-1:00pm. More information from the 92Y’s site here. The iJamming! archives for the book are here.
As it stands, this is the last public NYC event I have on the calendar to promote All Hopped Up and Ready To Go, so if you haven’t been able to make it to a reading yet, and have freelance hours, it would be wonderful to see you. Thanks to everyone who has supported and/or bought the book. I totally appreciate it. Happy New Year.
