Seasonal Special Happenings

Jon Fine Book Reading

When: Wed., Sept. 30 2015

An indie rocker who played for 30 years in a variety of different bands (including Bitch Magnet, a group which reunited after a 20-year break to tour the States, Europe and Asia), Jon Fine chronicles his experiences in his new book Your Band Sucks. He’ll be at the Euclid Tavern tonight at 7:30 to discuss the book with Plain Dealer writer John Petkovic, who’s also the frontman for Cleveland bands Death of Samantha and Cobra Verde. Consider the book the equivalent to Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential, Your Band Sucks in that it provides “an insider’s look at a fascinating and ferociously loved subculture.” Fine got backstage access so he could interview many of the indie and punk bands on the scene since the ‘80s (acts such as Sonic Youth and Black Flag). Admission is free. (Niesel)
