“Eat book-themed food. Drink book-inspired drinks. Wear book-related clothes.” Where? At the Bushwick Book Club that hosts monthly events!
If you are into good, VERY good literature, plus you enjoy good, VERY good music, and yet…a drink (why not?!)…then this is the place to be!
When? On January 21st, 8pm!
The Bushwick Book Club hosts once a month great shows inspired in memorable books!
“Every year, we use a different Kurt Vonnegut book as inspiration for new songs, art, dance, food. It’s been our tradition since 2009 when Bushwick Book Club began at cafe/venue “Goodbye Blue Monday”. It is also the alternate title for Vonnegut’s “Breakfast of Champions”.
Oh, I’m particularly excited to be holding our first show of 2016 at Counter Evolution because the owner and founder is Jim Malone who is also a musician and songwriter and Vonnegut lover. Not only is his space acoustically warm and perfect, but he loves Vonnegut. Perfect gets more perfect,” says Susan Hwang.
The event is called GALAPAGOS by Kurt Vonnegut. Plus, several fine songwriters and choreographers will be filling the room with book-inspired sound and movement.
Entrance is by donation and you can also BYOB – Bring Your Own Bottle!!! So, feel free to bring in any type of booze that makes your heart smile, lol.
FYI: Just for those who do not know – Counter Evolution sells stunning handcrafted furniture #MadeinBrooklyn from reclaimed bowling lanes.
See you all at the Bushwick Book Club!
