NYC Tour, Feb 2019


Hello, happy new year. A quick promotional note, as some dates are finally cemented.

In mid-February there will be a multi-venue book launch in the New York City area for, surprise, Ashes to Ashes.

This will kick off with an appearance on Evan “Funk Davies’ show on WFMU, in sunny Jersey City, from 9 PM to midnight on Wednesday 20 February 2019. I’ll try to get him to play an excerpt of “Leon”; he’s going to ask me about Absolute Beginners, a movie that mystified him a bit.

Thursday 21 February 2019, at 7 PM: a conversation with Billy Hough at McNally Jackson, 52 Prince Street, NYC. Hough is a downtown cabaret star (Scream Along with Billy), film actor (RampartTime Out of Mind), and ex-punk rocker (the GarageDogs). He works at McNally Jackson where he curates the How Not To … conversation series. McNally Jackson was Bowie’s local book store and is a great place.

and last, and certainly not least,

Monday 25 February 2019, again at 7 PM, at Rough Trade NYC, We once did a karaoke duet of “TVC 15.” Now Rob Sheffield and I will talk about Bowie! Rob is the author of On Bowie, Dreaming the Beatles, Love is a Mix Tape, Turn Around Bright Eyes, and Talking to Girls About Duran Duran.

If you’re in the area, I hope you can make it to something. I believe both events are free to the public, but if you want me to sign a book, you’ve got to get it there—that’s usually the deal.

Hopefully some UK information soon to come.

    Hello! Long time reader, first time poster, great work sir!

    The link for the Prince Street event includes a pre-order button; Is that what we should use to get the book that day? I think it only gives shipping options so I assume I should just come ready to purchase it the day of?

    ALSO, will Rebel Rebel be available at the event, I really don’t understand the situationnnnnnnn

    • Kevin Grimes says:

      Sorry just to clarify:

      If we want to purchase Ashes to Ashes at the Prince Street event, should we pre-order now or just wait to purchase day of?

      And do you expect Rebel Rebel will ALSO be available the day of? CHEERS!

        i’d say to be safe get it the day of, though if you pre-order from them and have a receipt, that should do it? will try to get more info.

        i’d like Rebel to be there too. It’s up to my old publisher to get it together on that front.

    Do you plan on doin anything in any other large cities in the US? I live near Chicago and would love to see it, but I’d understand if you weren’t able to.
