Rick Berlin presents his new memoir, THE PARAGRAPHS
Co-sponsored by Local 188
Rick Berlin presents his new memoir, THE PARAGRAPHS. Created from fragments used to write songs, this memoir recalls a life of music told in bursts of wild inspiration. Rick Berlin, the queer Boston music legend, formerly the frontman of Orchestra Luna, Berlin Airlift, Rick Berlin: The Movie, The Shelly Winters Project, and currently of The Nickel & Dime band, is known for his zany lyrics and unflinching wit. Exploring boyhood, filial relationships, animals, sex, drugs, and the dynamic social workings of Boston through the decades, Rick Berlin's work is "uncategorizable...part punk, part musical theater, part sentimental sap, part wordplay master. Gold" -- Amanda Palmer.
