LOST IN MUSIC
Wrecking Ball Arts Centre
Thursday 16th September
Legendary Haçienda DJ and acclaimed writer, Dave Haslam, will be in conversation with Hull author Lucy Nichol to talk about the impact music has on our lives at an informal event on 16th September.
Taking place at Wrecking Ball Music and Books on Whitefriargate in Hull, the writers will talk about how music has influenced their work and their lives – from clubs and venues to music and social tribes. There will also be an audience Q&A and exclusive book signing session, followed by a choice selection of music.
Dave Haslam began his first weekly DJing residency at the Haçienda in May 1986 – his final appearance there was the last night the Haçienda was open; June 28th 1997. His autobiography ‘Sonic Youth Slept On My Floor’ was acclaimed by Gilles Peterson as “the best book of 2018”. His latest project is ‘Art Decades’, a series of small format books about subjects including Sylvia Plath, Courtney Love, and the artist Keith Haring.
Lucy Nichol, originally from Hull, released her debut novel ‘The Twenty Seven Club’ in January of this year. The story takes readers back to Hull in the early 1990s (including nostalgic reflections on Spiders and the Adelphi), and is a darkly comic tale of mental health, music myths, hope, and fandom. It’s been described as “One of the essential must-read novels about the 90s, music, and life”.
Expect fascinating stories, and entertaining revelations.
Tickets cost £5.00 plus eventbrite booking fee. Drinks and snacks will be available to buy from the bar following the event.
