First Show of 2018 – Vonnegut’s PLAYER PIANO

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

Our first show of 2018 is inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s PLAYER PIANO.BBCplayerpiano.copy   If you don’t know us, you may not know that we have a thing for Vonnegut.  We don’t go on and on about it, but we do start each year with new songs inspired by one of his works.  It’s a long story that begins in 2009, but why think about that year, when we have a brand new one right here.  2018.  It presents to us that thing we’re obsessed with–the glorious unknown, which is also the reason we write songs about books.  And the reason we wake up each day.  To find out what happens.

Come join us January 30th at new, Brooklyn venue MIRROR IN THE WOODS.  We have some favorite contributors performing as well as some who are brand new to Bushwick Book Club.  We promise literature inspired songs accompanied by an original Vonnegut cocktail from BBC mixologists — Deb and Jason.  There may still be a book-inspired SNACK ARTIST in the wings.  We’ll keep you posted.  However, this we can be sure of — performances by:

ELLIA BISKER – Charming Disaster, Sweet Soubrette
