Happy Ending Music and Reading Series


Like a little musical angst with your literary readings? Downtown gal Amanda Stern’s always-excellent Happy Ending Music and Reading Series (which usually takes place at the Happy Ending bar) moves to Joe’s Pub tonight for this special indie-rock-themed edition, which is presented in collaboration with Sufjan Stevens’s record label, Asthmatic Kitty. The evening includes readings by rock writers Alec Hanley Bemis (co-founder of Brassland Records), Daphne Carr (the series editor of Best Music Writing), and Rob Sheffield (author of Love Is a Mix Tape), along with a set by My Brightest Diamond (a/k/a the super-stylish pianist-guitarist-singer Shara Worden), whose new album, A Thousand Shark’s Teeth, will be out in June.
