What Jonathan Ames said and our new songs about YOGA.

Tuesday, October 10th, 2017

“I was so honored that the Bushwick Book Club made music in response to my writing.  All the arts are about communication — if one is to make grand summarizing statements — and to have two of the arts communicating with each other, prose and music, like birds in a tree in Bushwick, is a brilliant concept that the Bushwick Book Club has invented and continues to practice with great joy and exuberance and beauty.  And to repeat myself — I’m so pleased that my writing caused this lovely group to burst into song. Because what’s better than bursting into song? Very little!” – Jonathan Ames, 

We played songs for Jonathan Ames’, Wake Up, Sir! in April 2014.  You can listen to all the songs here: https://bushwickbookclub.bandcamp.com/album/wake-up-sir-by-jonathan-ames

And you can listen to Jonathan speaking about being moved by BBC, singing a lullaby and demonstrating an authentic Harry Call right here: https://bushwickbookclub.bandcamp.com/track/jonathan-ames

Our next show is Tuesday, October 10th, 7:30pm at Barbès in Park Slope, Brooklyn, the same room where Jonathan Ames enacted that boyhood warning call and where the Lenape tribe partied for centuries.  The book inspiring new songs is yoga master, B.K.S. Iyengar’s LIGHT ON LIFE.

You know what is funner than doing yoga?  Well, just about anything, but definitely, listening to songs inspired by yoga.  Listen to new, original, songs from:

John S. Hall - poet, songwriter, KING MISSILE
Frank Rathbone, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, SicTic
Jessie Kilguss - songwriter, musician, vocalist
Pearl Rhein - actor, songwriter, ”Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812!”
Charlie Nieland - producer, engineer, songwriter, LUSTERLIT
Susan Hwang - songwriter, BBC founder and host

Bushwick Book Club meets regularly on the edge of literature-inspired art.
