The Burton Theater in Detroit will host the event which will con­sist of sign­ing copies of the book and a screen­ing of Greydon Clark’s sem­i­nal Black Shampoo — one of the great­est films of all time, and a fea­ture film fea­tured in Impossibly Funky. Come see what all the fuss is about!

Looking For Advice
Do you know much about Madison, WI? Milwaukee, WI? Boston, MA? New York, NY? Connecticut? I’m look­ing to set up some more book tour stops in 2010 and 2011. I’ve got­ten a cou­ple of leads but would love to hear about more hip book­stores and/or film societies/venues.
