Awesome Guys Named Alex Ross and Their Upcoming Appearances

  • Alex Ross
New Yorker classical music critic Alex Ross, author of The Rest Is Noise (one of my favorite books of the past few years), will discuss "Wind From Another Planet: Music, Words, and Images at the Dawn of Modernism" on 4/22 at the Art Institute of Chicago, which has more on the lecture. Ross has a new book coming out this fall, Listen to This; the NY'er feature from which the title comes will give you a taste of his wonderful writing.

He's not to be confused with comics legend Alex Ross, a former student of the American Academy of Art in Chicago, who will be at the Comic and Entertainment Expo on 4/17-18.
