What Are You Doing This Saturday?
Me? I'm going to be at the The Edge Summer Author & Music Series. Every Saturday in July we celebrate the summer with a unique pairing of a band and an author! The events are totally free, and they take place out on the Vroman's stage (right next to our main store) ever Saturday at 4 pm.
This Saturday is Paula Yoo, author of Good Enough, and local band The Listing Ship. Here's the latest video from The Listing Ship, who, as you can see, are quite fun:

Next Saturday, Yennie Cheung and Kyle Olson from Hipster Book Club (don't be intimidated by their name, they're really quite welcoming!) will discuss their new music issue, featuring reviews and essays about books like Black Sabbath's Master of Reality: 331/3 by John Darnielle, Beige by Cecil Castellucci, and many, many more. After the discussion, San Diego's finest, Red Pony Clock will perform. What's Red Pony Clock like? Well, judging from this video, I'd say that if you put They Might Be Giants, Beirut, a reggae band, and the cast of Saturday Night Live (one of the good casts) in a blender together, Red Pony Clock is what you would pour out:
Now doesn't that sound like more fun than that hot air balloon festival you were going to go to?
