IAN SVENONIUS, member of the Make-Up and Nation of Ulysses, will read from his new book "Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock N Roll Group". Ian communes with the spirits of long-departed rock stars including Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison, seeking insight into the history, meaning, and effective creation and/or destruction of the rock ’n’ roll group.

CALVIN JOHNSON of K Records and Beat Happening will play music. Based in Olympia, Washington, Calvin‘s work in underground culture started as a teenage fan volunteering at the local community radio station, KAOS-FM. The decade of the double zeroes saw Calvin Johnson set into the world, acoustic guitar in hand, as a solo artist of musical platitudes.
