A late-night venue can be chaos, magical, a city’s greatest asset, a life-changing buzz, a cultural catalyst. At this unique event to mark the publication of ‘Adventure Everywhere’, Dave Haslam’s short format book about Pablo Picasso’s Paris nightlife, Dave will be joined by guest interviewer Dr Francesca Berry to discuss big nights out; Picasso, Haring and the Hacienda; and the links between art and life after dark.
Dave Haslam is a former DJ at the Hacienda in Manchester, a journalist and the author of several full-length and short format books. His DJ-ing has taken him to the likes of Berlin, Lima, New York, and Paris. His ‘Life After Dark: the History of British Nightclubs & Music Venues’ (2015) garnered extensive positive reviews, and his memoir ‘Sonic Youth Slept on My Floor’ (2018) was proclaimed Book of the Year by Gilles Peterson.
His current project is a series of short format books; subjects have included Sylvia Plath, Keith Haring, and the Angry Brigade.
‘Adventure Everywhere‘ is the seventh book in the series, https://rb.gy/sp15o
