Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Kristin Hersh, Dean Wareham, Joe Pernice added to Boston Book Festival nightcap

The second annual BOSTON BOOK FESTIVAL lineup is already beyond ridiculous -- go check out the lineup -- but now we can release the details of the nightcap. On October 16 at 7:30 pm at John Hancock Hall, the Phoenix  and BBF will be hosting "THE BOOK REVUE: WORDS AND MUSIC" featuring a half-dozen authors who haven't quit their day jobs. Yet. We'd be lying if we told you we know exactly what the hell is going to happen at this thing -- all we know is it'll be more than people reading into a microphone, and likely less than a full-blown concert. But somewhere in between? There's an awful lot of room. 

Yeah Yeah Yeahs' guitarist NICK ZINNER will be projecting photos from his latest book Please Take Me Off the Guest List while performing ambient music alongside collaborators Zachary Lipez and Stacy Wakefield. 

NICK FLYNN is giving a reading, and we can only hope he'll include some stuff from his masterful Another Bullshit Night In Suck City, soon to be a shot-in-Boston movie with Casey Affleck and Robert DeNiro. (Here he is reading earlier this year from his more recent The Ticking Is the Bomb.)

Also on the bill: performances by KRISTIN HERSH (Penguin just published her Throwing Muses memoir Rat Girl, read Evelyn McDonnell's recent interview with her here), former Luna and Galaxie 500 leader DEAN WAREHAM (Penguin just published his memoir Black Postcards), and Pernice Bros' JOE PERNICE (who has published a book of poetry, the novel It Feels Good When I Stop, and is the co-author/subject of Joyce Linehan's book of their Twitter correspondence, which has also been turned into a Vimeo puppet show). 

The rest of the BOSTON BOOK FESTIVAL, taking place all day on October 16, is free. This, however, is $10. You should buy tickets because it will sell out quickly. Some of you will not heed this advice, and will come begging us to get you in. We know this. Which is why we're not telling you, right now, that we'll have some freebies to give away soon. Although that might very well be the case.
