The Deadly Snakes: Real Rock and Roll Tonight (which Staniforth began writing back in the spring of 2008!) is the third installment of Invisible Publishing’s Bibliophonic Series and charts the rise and gentle fall of Canada’s greatest band. Through interviews with the band members, Real Rock and Roll Tonight tells the story of Toronto’s beloved rock and roll band from their chaotic teenage beginnings to their exquisite final act.
The author will read, some Deadly Snakes tracks will be played, and refreshments will be had! This will be so fun - the Deadly Snakes were the best! I jumped on that bandwagon late - back in the mid-aughts - really towards the end of their illustrious career, but listened to them with a newcomer's gusto. With songs like "I Want To Die", "There Goes Your Corpse Again", and "Gore Veil" (which is actually a Toronto street, but sounds terrifying), what's not to like?
Hope to see you on Friday!
