33 1/3 is a series of books about a wide variety of seminal rock and pop albums. Join three of the authors for readings and special multimedia presentations. Hayden Childsâ€™s "Shoot Out the Lights" puts into context Richard and Linda Thompsonâ€™s albumâ€”from the personal history driving the songs, to the recording difficulties they encountered and the subsequent fall-out. He has appeared in "Lost in the Grooves: Scramâ€™s Capricious Guide to the Music You Missed." Kim Cooperâ€™s "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" sheds light on the underground classic album by Neutral Milk Hotel. Cooper is the editor of "Scram," and co-editor of the anthologies "Bubblegum Music is the Naked Truth" and "Lost in the Grooves: Scramâ€™s Capricious Guide to the Music You Missed." Scott Plagenhoefâ€™s "If Youâ€™re Feeling Sinister" provides perspective on how Belle & Sebastian transformed from a cult secret into a polished, highly entertaining, mainstream pop group. He is the Editor-in-Chief of Pitchfork.
