Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli performs a set of classics from his beloved catalog as well as new material. One of the most revered songwriters to come out of the ‘90s alternative underground, Dulli's trademark gravelly, soul-inflected voice and jagged, lyrical narratives about the darkest recesses of love and life sound timeless well into the 21st Century.
Derrick Brown is a comedian, poet, and storyteller from Austin, Texas. He is the winner of the 2013 Texas Book of The Year award for Poetry. He is a former Paratrooper for the 82nd Airborne and is the president of one of what Forbes and Filter Magazine call “…one of the best independent poetry presses in the country,” Write Bloody Publishing, which has launched over 112 books of poetry. He is the author of five books of poetry and three children's books.
“There's something that happens when you read Derrick Brown, a rekindling of faith in the weird, hilarious, shocking, beautiful power of words. When you read “Strange Light,” when you read any of his work really, or when you have the fantastic fortune to watch him perform it in person, you yourself are a bit more alive.” - The New York Times
