OK, so this is a very busy week here at the Library - Alanis played last night – and it’s time for a Wednesday Morning Pull-Up (WMPU.)
It’s the time where we step back and take a look at our upcoming events. Sometimes it’s important to do given the constant barrage of white noise bombarding our Blackberries and haggard neurons.
So here it goes:
Today, Wednesday – Acclaimed troubadour Steve Earle plays the Library. Tickets still available here.
Saturday, October 6th – “Big Easy Express: A Film by Emmett Malloy.”
This is an award-winning film documenting a tour consisting of Mumford and Sons, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show. Tickets are only $10. Get’em here.
[The film, I reckon, is (likely) based on the film Festival Express, which documenting a cross-Canadian train tour with the Dead, Janis, and the Band. (The best scene in that one was the one where, both very cross-faded, Jerry tells Janis, "I love you Janis. I always have." So tender. I miss Jerry.)]
Tuesday, October 9th – Patti Smith plays the Golden State Theater in downtown Monterey in a tribute to birthday boy John Lennon! I mean, c’mon. Get your ticket here.
And do remember: her show at the Warfield in SF has already sold out, so this is the only time to see her locally on this tour – and again, it’ll be better than any of the other performances given her homage to John!
Sunday, Oct. 14th – “Ping Pong and ‘Where Nothing Happens’ Release Party!” Ping Pong is our literary magazine; “Where Nothing Happens” is the “official” Henry Miller Library book.
We’re celebrating their publication with a localized night of music, booze, and revelry. By donation! More info here.
Friday, Oct. 19 – Mark Kozelek (of Red House Painters and Sun Kill Moon) in a rare acoustic performance at the Library. Tickets here.
Lastly, each of these events are on our Facebook page – feel free to go to them and invite friends!
