A quick reminder: Bazillion Points author Tony Rettman (NYHC: New York Hardcore 1980-1990) will give a public talk with Crate Digger author Bob Suren tomorrow, July 14, 7PM, at Rough Trade, 64 N 9th St, Brooklyn (L to Bedford). Rettman has a sterling track record of delivering blazing events and with Suren by his side no one is bound to leave disappointed. No vinyl shall remain unflipped! The prospect of leaving with two signed books is excellent.

About Bob Suren and Crate Digger:
BOB SUREN: Bob Suren discovered punk rock as a teenager and spent thirty years of his life obsessing about all aspects of the genre. He is the founder of Sound Idea Record Store, Sound Idea Distribution, Burrito Records and the band Failure Face.
CRATE DIGGER: In this engaging memoir, a small town Florida teenager discovers punk rock through a loaned mix tape and before long, punk music and culture slowly takes over all aspects of his life. His new passion causes him to form a band, track down out-of-print records that he loves and begin to reissue them, open a record store, begin a record distribution operation as a public service, mentor a host of young musicians, and befriend all manner of punk luminaries along the way. Slowly, his life’s pursuit pushes him to the point of personal ruination and ultimately redemption.
