Please join Cuneiform Press and Super Secret Records for a very special evening of poetry, paintings, and music at the Museum for Human Achievement celebrating the releases of Philip Trussell's literary debut Sentences and of Adam Ostrar's album The Worried Coat.
The celebration will include a reading by Philip Trussell as well as musical performances by Thor & Friends, Adam Ostrar, Spliff Kazoo and a showing of Philip's paintings.
There will be copies of the book and the album.
Adam Ostrar, as a bandleader (Sonoi; Manishevitz) and as Adam Busch, is at heart a 70's-influenced singer-songwriter with an equal indebtedness to folk, punk & power pop. Adam has played in/with The Boxhead Ensemble, Richard Davies (Cardinal/Moles/Cosmos) and Joseph Adamik; he often improvises with More Eaze and has collaborated also with Claire Rousay, Tom Asselin, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Lisa Cameron and others. His new album, The Worried Coat, recorded in part in Mexico City with Michael Krassner (Boxhead Ensemble; Lofty Pillars), Wil Hendricks (Califone; Simon Joyner) and Stephen Patterson (Hamilton Leithauser; White Rabbits), is his follow-up to 2017's Brawls in the Briar. This new album is "twelve narratives on otherness, self-identity, and our personal relationships with anxiety. How we often betray our best intentions through willful ignorance." Out earlier this month on LP, CD and digitally, the album is available via Super Secret Records.
