Stephin Merritt, Laurie Anderson to Participate in San Francisco "Talking Music" Series
Over the coming months, Stephin Merritt and Laurie Anderson will each participate in the Talking Music series of conversations and performances from the San Francisco non-profit arts organization City Arts & Lectures, held at the city's Herbst Theatre. The two will bookend the series: Stephin will open the season on September 11 in conversation and song hosted by Lemony Snicket author and fellow Gothic Archie Daniel Handler; Laurie will talk with music journalist Michael Azerrad for the season closer on April 27, 2009.
In between are talks and performances by a diverse selection of artists including Barbara Cook, Michael Tilson Thomas, Neko Case, and Okkervil River's Will Sheff, who has covered Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman and has cited the latter as an influence.
