Among them the Remainders have published over 150 titles, sold over 200 million books, and have been translated into over 25 languages, but for one week a year they are rock stars -- "Artist Access Only"- laminate-wearing, security-escorted rock stars -- with roadies and groupies. And today Patt is joined for an in-studio jam with band members Roger McGuinn and Frank McCourt. Dave Barry is checking in from the road.
The Rock Bottom Remainders will perform Saturday, April 29, 2:30 pm, at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The free outdoor concert, with Roger Mcguinn, takes place on the Etc. Stage, UCLA Campus. For information, visit Festival of Books.
The band will also perform that evening at 8 pm at UCLA's Royce Hall in a concert supporting 826LA . Billed as "BESIDES THE MUSIC: Conversation, Debate (with international scoring rules) and yes, Music", it will feature literary debate, a discussion of world issues, announcement of a major political initiative, and a set of music.
