Your Austin Music Minute host was first introduced to Josh Denslow through music – specifically, through the awesomeness that is Borrisokane (sign me up for those “synth-punk gloom-wonders,” baby). But consider the different layers of this multi-talented individual – music, film and literature. Today marks the release of Denslow’s debut short story collection, Not Everyone Is Special, and he’s celebrating in grand style with a party that will – naturally – include all kinds of great music.
Tonight‘s party at Cheer Up Charlie’s, 901 Red River, includes sets by Marmalakes, Thor & Friends, MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR, ANDY, Borrisokane (of course! thank you), and longtime AMM fave Bill Baird. In addition, check out DJ sets by members of The Octopus Project, and readings by authors Owen Egerton and Rachel Heng, starting out the evening at 8 p.m. The live music kicks off at 9 p.m.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Get there early to take it all in. ¡Y felicidades, Josh! This one comes very recommended.
