Atomic Fiction Series with JOSEPH SCAPELLATO and ROBERT REPINO

Thursday, May 25. 7-9PM
Hampden, Baltimore.
3620 Falls Rd

Joseph Scapellato, author of the story collection Big Lonesome, and Robert Repino, author of D'Arc, will be discussing their new books.

Hosted by Kathy Flann and Benn Ray.

JOSEPH SCAPELLATO's Big Lonesome (Mariner) is an inventive, ranging debut story collection from a writer hailed by Claire Vaye Watkins as “Wallace Stegner on peyote, Nathanael West in a sweat lodge, Larry McMurtry on a vision quest.”

In ROBERT REPINO's D'arc (Soho Press), the startling saga of Mort(e) continues. In the aftermath of the War With No Name, the Colony has been defeated, its queen lies dead, and the world left behind will never be the same. In her madness, the queen used a strange technology to uplift the surface animals, turning dogs and cats, bats and bears, pigs and wolves into intelligent, highly evolved creatures who rise up and kill their oppressors. And now, after years of bloodshed, these sentient beasts must learn to live alongside their sworn enemies—humans.

STEVEN BLUSH: NEW YORK ROCK

Thursday, June 17. 7PM-9PM
Hampden, Baltimore.

Steven Blush, author/filmmaker of AMERICAN HARDCORE makes a rare appearance in Charm City to debut his critically acclaimed new book NEW YORK ROCK: From the Rise of the Velvet Underground to the Fall of CBGB (St. Martin's Press). Don't miss this multi-media presentation for music fans of all ages.

As a city that represents endless possibilities, New York has been the setting for the dawning of new movements, styles, and genres. In the 20th century, the birth of Rock represented a connection between art forms and the city's socioeconomic, racial, and sexual variants. NEW YORK ROCK breaks down the rock scene's half-century connection to New York and analyses its distinct subculture through the prism of influences, crosscurrents, and psychoactive distractions. A compilation of first hand narratives about each genre of rock, from Punk New Wave and Glitter Rock to New York Hardcore and Indie rock, New York Rock is the ultimate illustrated account of Rock's role in New York City.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
STEVEN BLUSH has written three books on the subject of Rock: American Hardcore (Feral House, 2001), a history of the early-80s Hardcore Punk scene; American Hair Metal (Feral House, 2006), a visual tribute to big-haired rockers; and .45 Dangerous Minds (Creation, 2005), a collection of interviews with Pop Culture's most notorious. His writing has appeared in over 25 publications, including Spin, Details, Interview, Village Voice, and The Times Of London. For over 15 years he published the cult magazine Seconds, and still serves as contributing editor to Paper. Blush wrote and produced the American Hardcore documentary film (Sony Picture Classics, 2006), and followed that with an expanded and revised Second Edition of the American Hardcore book (Feral House, 2010)
