Tyler Sonnichsen, "Capitals of Punk: DC, Paris, and Circulation in the Urban Underground" (Palgrave MacMillan, 2019)

New Books in Music

This one's personal.Tyler Sonnichsen's Capitals of Punk: DC, Paris, and Circulation in the Urban Underground (Palgrave, 2019) was an amazing book for me to read and speak with its author about. While I am always fascinated by the different approaches to and thematic areas covered by the books I explore for the podcast, this one took me back to my years as a Montreal teenager, cutting my own hair, sewing my own dresses/skirts, and running around town after the loudest, fastest (sometimes angriest) music I could find. And it brings the stories of some of my favourite sounds from that era (and since) together with my love of and fascination for France and French culture. That's never happened before for me on the podcast. Capitals of Punk looks at the movement -between France and the United States, Paris and DC- of music, people, a broader (sub)cultural phenomenon that included writing, art, ideas, an ethos for creating and living. Drawing on interviews and the extensive archives kept by musicians, promoters, and fans on both sides of the Atlantic, the book traces how the underground music scenes of these two capital cities learned from and influenced each other. A musical geography that illuminates a counterculture across spaces and times, the book will appeal to punks young and old (!), and to anyone interested in the varieties of French and American music and urban history.Roxanne Panchasi is an Associate Professor of History at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada who specializes in twentieth and twenty-first century France and its empire.

Just Say You Dont Want To Go Excuse Blog (Tyler Sonnichsen)

Creativity Wasted

Idea: A blog to showcase the ridiculous excuses people give to comics (or other performers) when they don't want to go to their shows. Also: people repeatedly asking when you're performing and then never showing up, catching someone who made a BS excuse in their lie and then exploiting their guilt for free drinks, it probably won't break a performer's heart if you don't want to go to their show Markus Olind (twitter.com/BeardVonMarkus, Comedy Special: "Gettin Off Comedy Series" on Amazon Prime) Ahmed Mansour (twitter.com/AMan5our) Tyler Sonnichsen (https://tylersonic.com) Tom Walma (twitter.com/thomaswalma)
