Milwaukee Record Book Club with Steven Hyden

Since departing his post as A.V. Club Milwaukee’s City Editor way back in 2011, Steven Hyden has seen his work appear in renowned publications like The A.V. Club’s national site, Pitchfork, and Grantland. Along the way he found time to write a book. Hyden’s debut novel, YOUR FAVORITE BAND IS KILLING ME, is a hugely entertaining and fascinating book, exploring some of music’s great rivalries (Prince vs. Michael Jackson, Beatles vs. Stones, Taylor vs. Kanye) through the prism of how they relate to and inform our own lives.

Hyden will join Milwaukee Record‘s Matt Wild at the Cactus Club to discuss the book, his time in Milwaukee, and likely much more during the first Milwaukee Record Book Club. The FREE event will double as a live recording of our On The Record podcast, and will also feature an audience Q&A.

Vander Mill will offer free cider samples before the show. Boswell Book Company will have copies of Hyden’s book available for purchase. Stick around for a Screaming Females, DUSK, Holy Shit!, and New Boyz Club show after this event.

Our Bike Benefits Program: 2-for-1 on all beers and rails during happy hour if you ride your bicycle to the club
