Back in 1973, this ad in Billboard magazine quoted renowned Rolling Stone journalist Paul Nelson in promotion for an album by musician Elliott Murphy, a singer-songwriter who Nelson helped discover.
"Since Elliott Murphy and his work will be with us as long we have rock & roll, I suggest we play it now…" — Paul Nelson, Rolling Stone
And Elliott Murphy will be playing that music tonight at BookCourt in Brooklyn, alongside author/editor Kevin Avery, who will be doing a signing and discussion for Everything is an Afterthought: The Life & Writings of Paul Nelson.
This is a very special chance to not only hear the words that Nelson wrote, but to hear the music that inspired those words.
The event starts at 7:00 PM, and BookCourt is located at 163 Court Street in Brooklyn, between Dean and Pacific.
