An event, some interviews

Next month, Stephin Merritt will be performing at Le Poisson Rouge next month with Tanya Donnelly. Also in attendance will be the inimitable Sam Davol. Tickets and further information can be found here.

There have also been several interviews lately, but to spare all of our sanity I'll only post those that offer the most information. Salon interviews Mr. Merritt here, the last line of which perhaps sums up every interview Mr. Merritt has done for the past 15 or so years.

Also, Mr. Merritt's recent interview at the JCCSF (part of his recent book tour) has been uploaded to Youtube. It's fairly fun and features a musicalized version of the poem "Aa," as well as a somewhat impromptu performance of "Roses," about which I reckon I am one of the few to be significantly excited. Find it embedded below.

    1. I reckon us diehards are the only ones who would freak about a 22 second a cappella song.

  2. I've been to events at other places, but this was my first time in here. Great place. Food was good and seating was very comfortable. Also, very good view from where I sat. This is such a cool venue for events in New York and the atmosphere was equally amazing.
