Ian Svenonius comes to Brooklyn on Monday, January 28th, for a presentation/performance/seance where he channels the spirits of dead rock stars to talk about some of the key issues regarding the genesis and evolution of rock ‘n’ roll music to celebrate the release of his book Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock ‘n’ Roll Group: a how-to guide (with illustrations). The event is co-sponsored by Akashic and will feature an introduction by Vol. 1 Brooklyn’s Jason Diamond. Much more info to come.
