Bruce Adams with Dave Segal

Wed Dec 7, 7 pm
Elliott Bay Book Company Capitol Hill (Seattle)
This is an in-person event

Part of the Chicago music scene for almost 35 years, and co-founder, a few years later, of kranky records, Bruce Adams is here with his book chronicling that influential realm of music and culture with his new  book, You’re With Stupid: kranky, Chicago, and the Reinvention of Indie Music (University of Texas Press). “You're with Stupid serves as a primer on the independent record label boom of the late 1980s, the documenting of a city's diverse scene, and the quiet explosion of a new kind of music via kranky. Most importantly, it offers the backstories of some of your favorite bands and albums of the last thirty years.” - Mac McCaughan. “This well-informed love letter to Chicago, a hub of DIY music and sonic explorations, allows the reader to witness the birth of a label and largely covert scene that continues to mutate and resonate. Bruce Adams, though, avoids pure homage, bringing the same acute critical eye, and yes, barbed tongue, that helped build this musical revolution. A funny, bullshit-free chronicle of life in underground music.” - Kevin Martin

Appearing in conversation with Bruce Adams here tonight will be Seattle DJ and journalist Dave Segal, who presently writes for The Stranger.
