Radio Silence presents... A Tribute to Buddy Holly Featuring: *GREIL MARCUS *THAO NGUYEN *ELEANOR FRIEDBERGER *VAN PIERSZALOWSKI 21+ Live performances, conversation, food truck, cash bar, DJs Performers This special tribute to Buddy Holly will include live performances and conversation with Thao Nguyen, Eleanor Friedberger, and Van Pierszalowski, and a reading by the seminal rock critic Greil Marcus from his just-finished and still-unpublished new book. Greil Marcus has been writing about music and culture since the founding of Rolling Stone in the late '60s, where he served as their first reviews editor. His many celebrated books include Mystery Train; Lipstick Traces; The Old, Weird America; Bob Dylan; and The Doors. Thao Nguyen is the frontwoman for Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, whose album We the Common appeared earlier this year. Eleanor Friedberger is a member of Fiery Furnaces and released the solo album Last Summer in 2011. Her new solo work, Personal Record, will be available June 4 via Merge. Van Pierszalowski was a member of Port O'Brien and now fronts WATERS, whose album Out in the Light appeared in 2011. He is currently working on the follow-up. Venue Public Works is located a couple blocks from the 16th Street-Mission BART stop, on a dead-end street called Erie. Food & Drink & DJ Starting at 7, we'll have Rocky's Frybread serving Indian tacos out on Erie, and the bar will be open for service. Come have dinner with us, as DJs Amy A and Brynny spin '60s soul, Motown, garage, and girl groups. Generosity Radio Silence is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a volunteer staff. All proceeds and donations from this event will go to charity. And a portion of our revenue is used to buy books and musical instruments for kids.
