On Saturday, July 16, Writers & Books (740 University Avenue) will present "Books Alive!," a multimedia experience featuring regional noise and music acts paired with spoken word performances by writers. "Basically, we're going to take over the first floor of W&B and put on this long literary-music-visual art performance," says Director of Adult Programs Albert Abonado, who is co-coordinating the event with Autumn in Halifax singer-songwriter David Merulla. "The idea is to bring together the different mediums for a loud, slightly chaotic, hopefully exciting sensory experience."
Visuals by Dr. Hamburger will accompany performances by Alicia Hoffman and Timothy Elswick, Karsten Brooks, Roc Bottom Slam Team, Lindsay Herko, Crush the Junta, Autumn in Halifax, and Joe Tunis. "Books Alive!" will take place 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tickets are $10, and can be purchased online at wab.org. For more information, visit the website or call 473-2590.
