I'll come running (to dry your clothes)
Eno parted ways with Roxy Music in 1973 after a major falling out with Ferry. Later on, Eno claimed that he knew he was through with Roxy Music when he started thinking about his laundry during performances. —Geeta Dayal, Another Green World
Speaking of laundry: I'll be reading next Thursday, November 12, at...the Avenue A Laundromat (97 Avenue A)! Has it come to this??? (A: Yes!) I'll be reading with fellow Korean American novelist/New Order fan Sung J. Woo. It's part of the Dirty Laundry reading series. Things get rolling promptly at 7 p.m. (CORRECTION: 7:30 P.M.!) I'm not sure if you're allowed to do laundry during the reading. (I'll know that I'm through with readings if I start thinking about Roxy Music.)
Fast-forward........Two days after that, I'll be at Page Turner, the Asian American Literary Festival, yapping on a panel ("Everyone's a Critic") with the inimitable Hua Hsu....and Dennis Freakin' Lim...(they should just rename the Sunday Arts & Leisure section the Dennis & Lim section).
It's all happening at 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 14, on the ground floor of powerHouse, at 37 Main St. in DUMBO—here are directions!
