ok, me, jose
, and kent smith
(the guy who wrote the book we have out "please god save us"
) will be in Pittsburgh tomorrow (thursday september 24th) for the G-20
doing a book singing and throwing molotov cocktails
- here's the hype....
Internationally renowned artist Derek Hess, along with award-winning, Cleveland-area politician Kent Smith, will return to Pittsburgh in the middle of the G-20
event to sign their critically acclaimed book, “Please God Save Us”. The duo will be signing books at Jester’s Court Tattoos
[1410 East Carson Street; Pittsburgh, PA 15203; (412) 488-8287] from 8PM – 11PM. This is a ONE NIGHT ONLY
event, on Thursday, September 24, 2009.
Prior to the book signing, Derek and Kent will be interviewed on Robert Morris University college radio. The students are excited that we are coming - but the administration is a little nervous. So the interview will be taped - not live. They say it will be 30-40 minutes in length and they will re-broadcast it throughout the day. Robert Morris radio is www.rmuradio.com
We are scheduled to be there at 1PM.
Shout out the the Pittsburgh PGSU book posse - DJ Zimmie, Emily
friday - i'll be doing this event - Short Summary:
Japanese for "the sound of conversation", was started in
2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture in Tokyo, Japan and is now happening in
over 230 cities worldwide. On September 25th, 2009, PechaKucha Night
Cleveland is taking over the subway tunnels of the Detroit Superior Bridge
as local creatives present their work, ideas, and obsessions in a series of
short presentations on art, fashion, food, architecture, film, furniture,
music, and photography. Each presenter will show 20 slides - timed to 20
seconds a piece - forcing presenters to edit to a new level of interest and
conciseness. Space will be tight so be sure to come early and enjoy a few
beverages prior to being inspired, influenced, confused, provoked, and
slightly intoxicated by the insanely varied topic mix (and possibly the
drinks as well). Each event is free, open to the public, and attracts
anywhere from 200-350 people.
For more information and the list of presenters, visitwww.pecha-kucha.org/cities/cleveland/5.
