Bookfest

Book fans take note of the Brooklyn Book Fest schedule, with "bookend" events starting today (9/15) and running through Sunday (9/18). One of the many events is a musical evening at Goodbye Blue Monday tonight....

Bovary? A tango for Anna Karenina? Every title, author and genre is fodder for songs written and performed by local musicians including Corn Mo, Phoebe Kreutz, Franz Nicolay, Sweet Soubrette, Dan and Rachel and Natti Vogel, inspired by Keith Richards' autobiography. Hosted by Susan Hwang.
Another takes place at Issue Project Room. The actual festival is on Sunday.

I'm in love with my girl now, she's away
Maybe I'll move on, maybe I'll move on, man
Need your help, I need your love today
Walked a little while now I can see
Now it's you in love with me
You made a believer out of me, babe
You made a believer out of me
Do right, you do right
When they ask what's wrong you say okay
I'm in love with a girl who's gone away
Maybe I'll move on, maybe I'll move on, man
Need your help, I need your love today
Maybe I'll move on, maybe I'll move on, man
I'm in love with a girl, she waits at the end
I drive me 24 hours a day
Once I was blind now I can see
Need you, need you tonight girl
You do, you do right
I was blind but now I see
Well they say what's wrong, I say hey okay
I'm in love with my girl but she's away
Need your help, need your love today
I say your love right away
I've got a girl and she's sweet
I've got a girl, you know what I mean

CAN or Geraldine Fibbers. It's a fantastic song with either band.

Awesome. Looking forward to hitting on all the arty-nerd bookworm girls who hate society and mumble no more than 2 words to whoever is not their hipster boyfriend (that is getting shafted up the ass by their dealer).
