Local authors and musicians will gather at Johnny Brenda’s on Thursday, July 6th for the Broken River Revue, an evening of readings and music in honor of Penn grad and Cornell Creative Writing Professor J. Robert Lennon‘s new book Broken River.
The free event will feature sets by I Think Like Midnight (the instrumental semi-ode to Pell Mell comprised of members of The Wishniaks, The Dead Milkmen, and The Silver Ages) and Joey Sweeney, who will be debuting his new band The Neon Grease and a new song that day. The former released its sole effort Warm Seclusion Structure back in 2014, while the latter has been kicking around tunes under various monikers (Arctic Splash, The Long Hair Arkestra just to name a few) since his days in The Trouble With Sweeney.
Andrew Ervin, author of Burning Down George Orwell’s House and Elizabeth Scanlon, award winning poet and Editor of The American Poetry Review will join Lennon in sharing readings throughout the night.
Watch I Think Like Midnight’s “Echo Celeste” below, followed by Sweeney’s 2014 track “Records and Coffee.” More details about the show can be found here.
