Event Details

Taking a cue from Nick Hornby’s writings about music in High Fidelity, eight San Francisco Bay Area writers are gathering to read new work inspired by songs, bands and mix-tapes.

At this free event, the writers will be relating tales of early obsessions with the boy-band New Kids on the Block, examining the particular flavor and psychology of mix-tapes, lending insight to Brian Eno, Quasi, and the Talking Heads, playing “meta-songs,” and exploring the mysterious place where songs that have been forgotten now reside.

Writers/performers include Han and Sadie (of the delicious local pop band, Invisible Cities) G Reyes, Cathlin Goulding, Curt Douglas, Vickie Vértiz, Kenji Liu, Ava Tong and Alisa Dodge.
