Athens’ own Bram Riddlebarger was one of the first folks involved with Aquabear Legion lending his songs, writing, and live performances to many a project over the years. Bram is releasing his first novel, Earplugs, was published on November 30, 2012 by Livingston Press. To celebrate the books release there is a party at Casa Cantina in Athens on Sunday, December 9 at 6:00pm and run through the night. Bram will read from the book from 7-8-pm, followed by a signing. Bands will start around 9pm. Hex Net and Weird Science will play as well as a stripped down Heartlanders set.
From Earplugs press info: “In this charming novel, a quest for earplugs tries to stave off old age, unrequited love, and the burden of change. But like dark ships appearing on the horizon of small-town ear canals, bobbing masts signal beginnings and ends. A town overtaken by a new order. Antique dealers selling off the living room. Relationships that ignite and do not last. Eau de Auld versus Odeur Nouveau, in brief.”
Go pick up the book at Casa on Sunday and Bram will sign it for you, if you can’t make it to that check at local places around town (Little Professor, Haffa’s), and if you are out of the area you can buy it on Amazon by clicking here.
