Ric Ocasek in Conversation
Amoeba Music, Hollywood
Wednesday – March 6th – 6pm
Chris Douridas (KCRW) hosts an evening with Ric Ocasek at this special Q&A and signing in Amoeba’s Jazz Room! Space for this event is limited. To guarantee entry to the event and signing, receive a ticket with purchase of his new book, Lyrics & Prose, at Amoeba Music, Hollywood.
In Lyrics & Prose, Ocasek collects his poetry alongside lyrics from The Cars' self-titled 1978 debut album through 2011's Move Like This, as well as his six solo albums—punctuated throughout by the artist's early handwritten notes, set lists, doodles and photographs. Ocasek has enjoyed a storied career spanning his work with The Cars and as a solo artist, publishing poetry in Granta and elsewhere, and producing albums by musical artists such as Weezer, Bad Brains, Hole, Guided By Voices, and Jonathan Richman.
