Saturday, May 30, 1 PM – 3 PM, Austin Gangsters Take Over Half Price Books North Lamar. A few murder ballads plus Q&A. I’ll be signing “1960s Austin Gangsters: Organized Crime That Rocked the Capital.” But actually, I’ll sign anything. Come by. Eddie Wilson has promised to buy you a beer at Threadgill’s (N. Lamar) after the signing if you buy a copy of “1960s Austin Gangsters,” the chronicle of Austin’s dark underbelly of vice and crime in the peace and love decade. Read past posts about the book here and here.
Sunday night, May 31, I’ll be doing a song at the Tertulia event at the Continental Club Gallery. If you haven’t been to one of these, you don’t know what you’re missing. The contributors each do a song, poem, or some other performance piece in response to a theme determined by the curators. This time it’s “Maybe.” What does “Maybe” mean to you? Come find out what it means to this talented roster of artists (see poster below).
