Jake Austen | Chicago Cultural Center, Claudia Cassidy Theater | Literary Events | Chicago Reader
This is a past event.
When: Tue., Oct. 25, 6:30 p.m. 2011
Phone: 312-744-6630
Literature, film, television, and rock music combine for the launch event of Flying Saucers Rock 'n' Roll, local author Jake Austen's anthology of interviews and profiles of little-known musicians (culled from the music magazine Roctober, which Austen edits and publishes). There's also a screening of Flying Saucers Rock!, a film featuring performance footage by the artists featured in the book. Clips from Chic-a-Go-Go, Austen's public-access cable dance show, will be shown as well. Milt Trenier and his band perform, and, of course, Austen will read from the book.
