(2004, Derek and Friends)
Don't Miss I'll Go Ahead, new for A Month of Sundays for December!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Eugene - Old Eugene hand, author, and singer/songwriter Derek Lamson joins The New Zone Gallery, (10th and Oak, Eugene), Saturday December 10th at 4:00 p.m., for the Eugene debut of his new graphic novel, Mark V: The Opera, a Eugene story; and his new musical album, A Month Of Sundays. (Copies of both will be for sale at discount.) At 130 pages, Lamson and his partners have cooked up a deeply personal, entertaining, and wild ride through multiple takes on the famous Gadarene Demoniac story from the Bible; a book that’s also a love-letter to Oregon’s second city, Eugene, and a deep dive into our own epidemics of racism, homelessness, and mental health crisis. Lamson’s guests will include book partner artist John Williams, and Marvel Comics consultant and U of O professor Dr. Ben Saunders. It’s suggested come early, as the evening will kick off with Eugene’s own Kriss Crowley, Kathy Burleson, and Slim Novak, joining the veteran songwriter Lamson, live on selections from his new self-penned anthology music album, A Month of Sundays, his fifth collection.
