7/19 Prose Reading: Faloon, Fournier, Vachon, & Lillis @ Nine Stories

7PM THURSDAY, JULY 19…

Mike Faloon & Mike Fournier are touring writers coming to Pittsburgh to celebrate Faloon’s new book of music essays, THE OTHER NIGHT AT QUINN’S. Local writers Jude Vachon & Karen Lillis will round out the bill.

Mike Faloon is a former DJ, dishwasher, and drummer. He is the author of The Hanging Gardens of Split Rock and the co-editor of Fan Interference. Faloon co-founded Go Metric and Zisk zines and has contributed to Cabildo Quarterly, Cashiers du Cinemart, Razorcake, Submerging Writers, and Vol. 1 Brooklyn. His latest book is The Other Night at Quinn’s, a collection of music essays about the free jazz scene that emerged at a diner in upstate New York.

Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE) exclaims, “Whoa, these spiel batches pack much punch and got their grip way into brain-frame! Faloon had me captured and I had to keep reading.”

Wayne Kramer (MC5) adds that it’s “…a deeply personal dive into the psyche of a hardcore music fanatic…utterly indispensable. A truly great read.”

Rudy Wurlitzer (Nog, Two Lane Blacktop) says, “A mesmerizing and lucidly well written journey inside and out and around of what it means to live, celebrate and survive inside an expanding and eroding culture.”
