Talking To Nerds About Music
If you like tall, nerdy, depressed guys who graduated from Yale and talk about music a lot - and, if you're reading this blog, the odds are that you do - then you will love the writings of Rob Sheffield. His latest book, Talking To Girls About Duran Duran, is just as accomplished as his first book, Love Is A Mix Tape, but, as an added bonus, it will not make you sob uncontrollably. This saturday, he is DJing at The Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn, and on sunday afternoon he is participating in a panel discussion as part of the Brooklyn Book Festival.
