The Williamsburg Avant-Garde covers such topics as “…Warehouses, Squatter Parties, and Punk Roots 1988-1994”, The Williamsburg Loft Scene, 1997–2004, The Downtown Scene [&] Zebulon, 2004–2006 and “…The Last Avant-Garde Music Spaces of Williamsburg, 2005–2014”.
Bradley’s book on the jazz great bassist and bandleader got the short end of the stick as it was published during early Covid, so the author will offer a reading from this book as well.
