The 780s Series is an annual lecture hosted by the Lawrence Public Library, and it brings some of the brightest minds in music to Lawrence to share their experiences. It will return on Feb. 9 with David Lowery, the singer-songwriter behind alt-rock bands Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, who will discuss his career and music rights activism.
“David Lowery fans: I hope you’re free to join us on Nov. 3 at the Lawrence Arts Center. You can expect an irreverent, wide-ranging conversation about the business of rock music, the Internet, capitalism, and maybe even a little math,” Library Director Brad Allen writes.
As part of a grant, a pipeline program will pay for two BIPOC community members to obtain master’s degrees in library science from Emporia State University. Participants will be employed with paid internships at the Lawrence Public Library throughout the program.
Vitreous Humor last played together in 1996, but the Topeka-born band has released their album, “Posthumous,” on vinyl today. Thanks to The Pitch for letting the Times republish this article!
