What You'll Get


In a living room strewn with vinyl records, beer bottles and drug paraphernalia, Lester Bangs rants about his missing copy of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks album and won't back down until the universe grants his request. How to Be a Rock Critic pulls the highlights from the life and words of a pioneering rock critic to imagine a single night in his turbulent life. Bangs embraced mistakes as strokes of genius, popularized now ubiquitous terms like "heavy metal" and "punk rock" and died of an overdose at the age of 33. Part Gonzo rock performance, part mental breakdown -- all thrillingly theatrical -- this evening with music's great, lost critical voice explodes onstage in what LA Weekly called "fascinating, insightful... as cathartic and inspiring as the best rock & roll." See for yourself at Boston's Emerson/Paramount Center Jackie Liebergott Black Box.
