Austin – Oct 30, 2012: “Leonard Cohen A Life In Art” With Sylvie Simmons & Roscoe Beck

KUT’s Views & Brews presents Leonard Cohen a Life in Art

When: October 30, 2012 at 7:30 pm
Where:  Cactus Cafe, Austin Texas

Leonard Cohen just celebrated his 78th birthday while on a world tour with his new album “Old Ideas.”  On Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, 2012,  he and his band will kick off the US portion of this tour right here in Austin, TX.

Join Roscoe Beck, Cohen’s collaborator, producer, bassist and local Austinite, along with Sylvie Simmons author of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohenalong with Cohen’s band members to explore the life and art of living legend Leonard Cohen. What does it mean to live your art?  How and why does his work continue to impact generations of artists, thinkers, and seekers?

The event is being organized by Austin Radio station KUT and will be held in the Cactus Cafe.  Views and Brews events are free, but we will be asking for a suggested donation of $10 at the door. Seats are pretty limited so I would suggest that people get there early.

    Dang it! We won’t be pulling into the Austin area until about 9 PM. By then, it will likely be over. So the very best to both of you, Roscoe and Sylvie [and, ahem, be sure to speak up ;), Sylvie :)].
