You’ve probably heard about Mark Baumgarten’s new book Love Rock Revolution: K Records and the Rise of Independent Music. It’s a nifty summer read about all things K and it comes with a great music download, too!
This weekend, Baumgarten will be doing a series of readings all around the Pacific Northwest. The first date is this evening at Powell’s, and will be followed by a K tribute show at Valentine’s in Portland.
Tomorrow night, Baumgarten will be reading at the Henry Art Gallery in Seattle for the opening of The Record: Contemporary Art and Vinyl. This art show/book reading extravaganza will be accompanied by performances by Slashed Tires and The Hive Dwellers! Tickets for that event are still on sale for just $10, so if you’re in Seattle you should definitely go dig the scene!
Finally, Baumgarten is reading at the Anacortes Unknown Music Series this weekend (the 14th & 15th) and will also be signing copies of the book, which you can pick up at the Small Press Book Fair if you don’t have one already!
Go forth and read, friends!
