TALK + BOOK SIGNING: PICK UP THE PIECES: EXCURSIONS IN SEVENTIES MUSIC

April 11, 2019 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

John Corbett discusses music and signs copies of his latest book, Pick Up the Pieces. “Unless you lived through the 1970s, it seems impossible to understand it at all. Drug delirium, groovy fashion, religious cults, mega corporations, glitzy glam, hard rock, global unrest—from our 2018 perspective, the seventies are often remembered as a bizarre blur of bohemianism and disco. With Pick Up the Pieces, John Corbett transports us back in time to this thrillingly tumultuous era through a playful exploration of its music. Song by song, album by album, he draws our imaginations back into one of the wildest decades in history. Touching on all facets of seventies music, in 78 action-packed chapters he considers Pink Floyd and Parliament, Sun Ra and the Residents, Joni Mitchell and the Slits.” John Corbett is a writer and independent curator based in Chicago, where he is co-owner of Corbett vs. Dempsey art gallery. He is the author of Microgroove: Forays into Other Music (Duke U. Press, 2015) and Vinyl Freak: Love Letters to a Dying Medium (Duke, 2017), as well as several books on Sun Ra.
