Strand Book Store has announced an upcoming conversation with veteran concert promoter and author Peter Shapiro as he discusses his new book, The Music Never Stops: What 10,000 Shows Taught Me About Life, Freedom, and the Pursuit of Magicwhich was co-written by Relix editor Dean Budnick. The event will take place on August 9 at 7 p.m. in the Rare Book Room on the 3rd floor of the Strand Bookstore.
David Fricke, longtime editor and writer at rolling stone will join Shapiro in the conversation. The two music industry greats will discuss Shapiro’s debut novel, which gives readers insight into the author’s vivid life experiences, from operating Tribecca’s legendary Wetlands Preserve to reopening the legendary Capitol. Theater and, inevitably, to establishing a legacy with the various halls of the Brooklyn Bowl.
The music never stops delves into these experiences through the lens of Shapiro’s 50 Most Iconic Shows, earning him the title “the most outstanding independent concert promoter since Bill Graham,” a sentiment affirmed in Variety.
