On October 10, Stephin Merritt will be appearing in conversation with Ethan Gilsdorf at The Brattle in Cambridge, MA. The appearance will be in conjunction with Merritt's upcoming book, 101 Two-Letter Words, which you should preorder right now. Mr. Merritt will also be signing his book.
Tickets for the event are $22 (including the cost of the book) and will go on sale September 9th. Here's to hoping this is the first in a series of similar events for Mr. Merritt!
While I'm here, don't forget to buy tickets for Stephin Merritt's solo performance at BAM September 19th. Sharing the bill with Mr. Merritt are Iron & Wine and Devendra Banhart, the latter of whom's tablas are heard on Realism.
