Björk & The Raincoats: Emily Mackay and Jenn Pelly in conversation

Monday 16th October 2017 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Signing, Music Event, Chargeable Event

Join music journalists Emily Mackay and Jenn Pelly as they delve into the work of some of the world’s most influential female artists to celebrate their new books in the 33 1/3 series on Björk’s Homogenic and the songs of The Raincoats.

On the 20th anniversary of Björk's groundbreaking album and the 40th anniversary of The Raincoats’ formation, Pitchfork editor Jenn Pelly and Observer journalist Emily Mackay take a look back on what inspired them to pursue these two very different artists, and what links them.

Mackay and Pelly will discuss the music and its context along with the process of writing itself - this is not one any fan or aspiring music journalist is will want to miss.

 

Tickets: £8 per ticket or £5 for Foyalty members. You must have your Foyalty card on you on the night to present at the door. Not a Foyalty member? Sign up for free here.
Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road
