I’m participating in the Talking Songs series at the excellent semi outlaw social space Double Double Land, here in downtown Toronto, next Wednesday, along with Adam Litovitz and Alia O’Brien. Being asked to choose three to five songs and talk about what’s interesting about them is like … dancing about architecture. I know Elvis Costello intended that comment as an insult but dancing is always about architecture … so: if you’re in Toronto, drop by!
Double Double Land, 209 Augusta, TO, Wednesday, September 15, 8 pm
MARCUS BOON talks about “Genealogies of Global House” or “Chopping and Screwing from Terry Riley to DJ Screw” or “The Electric Harpsichord” or …
