    Two different programs at 7:00 and 9:30pm
    In the new book BUY ME, BOSTON, advertising oddities and flyers for long-gone businesses, punk bands, film screenings, hip-hop acts, strip clubs, and tourist attractions swim next to each other in a glorious stream-of-consciousness visual tour through late 20th Century Boston. To celebrate the release, author Brian Coleman has a truly unique night planned for us.

    At 7:00pm Coleman will present a curated slide show of pieces from the book and beyond, including an hour of rare video footage. This will be followed by a panel featuring David Bieber (The David Bieber Archives), Prince Charles Alexander (musician, producer, engineer), Blowfish (Boston Groupie News), and Dart Adams (acclaimed local journalist & historian).

    The 9:30pm program will feature over an hour of completely different video clips from Boston’s musical past, and Coleman will present another slide show of material from the book and beyond.

    Tickets for this special event are $10 each or $15 for a double feature ticket allowing entry into both shows.
