Divine, Polygon Books, Glasgow City Music Tours, Waterstones & The Admiral proudly present:
*** MEMPHIS 68 : Book Launch Club Night ***
(A soulful evening with Stuart Cosgrove)
Stuart Cosgrove will be launching "Memphis 68", the highly anticipated sequel to the universally acclaimed "Detroit 67", at The Admiral in Glasgow with an exclusive evening featuring spoken word and a Q&A session, followed by book-signing and, later on, spinning a DJ set at a Divine northern soul special.
"Memphis 68" begins with the tragic death of the city's most iconic soul star Otis Redding and follows the story of Stax and Volt Records, before Memphis is back in the headlines with the assassination of Martin Luther King... Stuart will be reading excerpts from his new book, introduced by Alison Stroak (Glasgow Music City Tours), before turning to the audience for questions.
At 10pm the lights dim, and the Divine sound system powers up for a club night of northern soul, funk and crossover with Stax and Memphis recordings featuring heavily on the playlist. Joining Stuart on the twin tables of soul will be legend of the Scottish soul scene Lenny Harkins (Caledonia Soul / True Soul) and Andrew Divine (The Funk Room / Goodfoot).
Advance tickets: £7 (STBF) inc. entry to club night - available from Tickets Scotland, Monorail Music and The Admiral Bar.
