And lest we be accused of being NY-centric, here's short notice of a great looking event happening in Detroit tomorrow evening (Friday 30th).
Celebrating three recent books that look at the Detroit scene and including readings, live music, and a photography exhibit, Detroit Punk Fest is curated by Carey Loren and takes place at Book Beat in Oak Park.
The books in question are:
Touch and Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Scene, 79-83
Punk Rock Saved My Ass
and our very own
Cultural Dictionary of Punk, 1974-82, by Nick Rombes
The Detroit Free Press has a nice piece about the event, which you can read here.
