Please join us in welcoming John Jeter for a discussion and signing of his new book Rockin' a Hard Place: Flats, Sharps, & Other Notes from a Misfit Music Club Owner. Rockin' a Hard Place is the story of The Handlebar, an intimate "listening room" that has presented thousands of artists--John Mayer, Joan Baez, Zac Brown, and Sugarland among them--and hosted a quarter-million fans since its opening in 1994. A promoter's memoir, this is the story of a naÃƒÂ¯ve plunge into an industry that Hunter S. Thompson once called a "cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free."
