Today brings another nice “Losering” review, this one from the estimable Fred Mills over at Blurt magazine. Fred was very kind and he calls the book “a love letter to Adams’ long-suffering fanbase,” which I’d say is just about right. In addition to a review, the package includes a pretty lengthy Q&A interview.

Continuing on with the “Losering” campaign for world domination, Tuesday brings some kind words from the fine folks over at the all-things-local news and arts blog New Raleigh, penned by Mr. Jedidiah Gant — much-appreciated even if he does prefer Ryan’s Heartbreaker to Whiskeytown’s Strangers Almanac (but hey, that is a more-than-defensible position); as well as a nice little hit from Blurt (thanks, Fred!!).
Also, I was on radio station WUNC-FM’s “The State of Things” Tuesday afternoon, talking to show host Frank Stasio about the book as well as local-music history. The show will air again at 9 p.m. Tuesday night, or you can listen via the online archive here.
Meanwhile, I’ll be back on the radio Wednesday morning, talking to Jacob at about 8 a.m. on WKNC, 88.1-FM, in advance of Thursday night’s Quail Ridge reading, Friday night’s Flyleaf reading and the Oct. 4 Regulator reading. Get on up, tune on in and come on out.
This weekend brings the big Hopscotch Music Festival to Raleigh, with 175 acts in 15 venues around downtown, and it promises to be a rousing good time. Thursday’s opening night sure went great — there’s a recap here, and a preview story in the paper here. I’ll be around and about both Friday and Saturday, as both an observer and low-impact participant.
My participatory part of it happens Friday afternoon at Deep South, where the Schoolkids Records/Blurt magazine day party happens with a fine lineup including Jenny Besetzt, Lazy Janes, Toddlers, Old Bricks and Gross Ghost. I’ll be serving as emcee; and they’ll be selling copies of “Losering” at the merch table. Buy one and I’ll throw in a signature gratis.
That’s noon to 5 p.m. Friday at Deep South, 430 S. Dawson St. in Raleigh. It’s even free. So for those in the Greater Raleigh vicinity: Y’all come.
