Rock-n-Reading: The Words of Musicians 

click to enlarge events_rec-1.jpg

Storytelling is a staple of all New Orleans music — from "St. James Infirmary" to "Life Under the Scope" — so a spotlight on the words of its musicians seems long overdue. The lineup of this writers' group represents the broad spectrum of the city's other stable of wordsmiths: Mike Williams, rock journalist and guttural voice of metal giants EyeHateGod and Outlaw Order, who dispenses Southern discomfort from his 2005 volume Cancer as a Social Activity: Affirmations of World's End; New Orleanian Malkmus James Marler and 9th Ward bard Luke Allen, frontmen of Rotary Downs and the Happy Talk Band, respectively; and label head, wing chef and bounce chronicler 10th Ward Buck, who shares anecdotes from The Definition of Bounce: Between Ups and Downs in New Orleans. Musician and writer Michael Patrick Welch (aka The White Bitch, pictured) interviews each artist and reads from his 2011 book Y'all's Problem. Tickets $10, free for Ogden members. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
