City Arts and Lectures Announces "Talking Music"

City Arts and Lectures, the group responsible for the lecture series of the same name, has just introduced a new lecture series known as "Talking Music". The first three dates are co-sponsored by Noise Pop. The talks will be similar to the standard City Arts and Lectures format, but focused on more music-centric topics. For this season they've reeled in Ben Gibbard, Bob Mould, Linda Rondstadt, Stephen Sondheim, and others. There will also be a night devoted to remembering Nick Drake that will include his sister Gabrielle. The talks will take place at both Herbst Theater and the Palace Of Fine Arts. The action starts off September 11th with the Gibbard talk, and tickets are available now.
