The Rock Bottom Remainders is a band that includes some of today’s most shining literary lights. But tonight, they’re rock stars – artist-access-only, laminate-wearing rock stars with roadies and groupies. Three ringers help them out: drummer Josh Kelly, Erasmo Paolo on saxophone, and Janine Sabino on vocals. Hailed by critics as having “one of the world highest ratios of noise to talent,” the Remainders may lack accolades, but they do have over 159,000 hits on Google. Buy your tickets now for their VIP reception, or general admission to their concert at the Chicken Box on Saturday night.
Performers: Mitch Albom, Dave Barry, Sam Barry, Roy Blount Jr, Susie Essman, Greg Iles, Mary Karr, James McBride, Ridley Pearson, Scott Turow, Alan Zweibel.
