 Jessica Hopper

JESSICA HOPPER
THE FIRST COLLECTION OF CRITICISM
BY A LIVING FEMALE ROCK CRITIC 

Thursday,  May 14. 7-9PM.
Atomic Books. 3620 Falls Rd.
Hampden, Baltimore.

Jessica Hopper's music criticism has earned her a reputation as a firebrand, a keen observer and fearless critic not just of music but the culture around it. With this volume spanning from her punk fanzine roots to her landmark piece on R. Kelly's past, The First Collection leaves no doubt why The New York Times has called Hopper's work "influential." Not merely a selection of two decades of Hopper's most engaging, thoughtful, and humorous writing, this book documents the last 20 years of American music making and the shifting landscape of music consumption. 

This evening will feature a reading and Q&A with the author.

RSVP (not required)

Union / Big Little Art

Union Craft x Atomic Books Collaboration Release:
ATOMIC MUTATION SAISON
Eightbar Show: 
BIG LITTLE ART SHOW

Art show runs through the end of May.
Atomic Mutation will be on tap until it's unavailable.
Atomic Books' Eightbar.
Hampden, Baltimore.

 We are very excited to announce Union Craft Brewing's collaboration with Atomic Books: ATOMIC MUTATION DRY-HOPPED SAISON. 

Two years ago, when we opened Eightbar and started stocking local and craft beer, one of the first breweries we stocked was Union Craft. We love their line of beers and are ridiculously excited to have one of Baltimore's finest breweries make a beer for us.

So join us for the exclusive release of:
ATOMIC MUTATION DRY-HOPPED SAISON
A 6.7% Belgian-style farmhouse ale dry-hopped with citra & Nelson Sauvin hops. This beautiful brew showcases a wonderful Belgian yeast strain with notes of apple, pear, & apricot and then finishes dry with an almost white wine grape character.

This is the 2nd release in Union's ongoing Liquid Local Legends Series. Liquid Local Legends beers are small-batch, draft only releases and will be available for a limited time in Union's tap-room and around Baltimore. And in the case of Atomic Mutation, also available at Atomic Books' Eightbar.

Artwork created by the awesome Andrea Kalfas.

BIG LITTLE ART SHOW OPENING
A community art exhibit featuring pieces that are 5 x 7 inches or smaller.

This show will run through the month of May.

RSVP (optional)
