When: Wed., May 11, 7:30 p.m. 2011

The monthly lit-meets-theater series First Person Singular returns, with a powerhouse attraction: Legendary (and local) rock writer Greil Marcus, reading from the expanded new edition of The Old, Weird America. First issued in 1997 as Invisible Republic, it's a lush, exhaustive chronicle of the storied late-Sixties recordings by Bob Dylan and the Band, excerpts from which became The Basement Tapes. Marcus emotes to beat the band on Wednesday, May 11, at Pegasus Solano (1855 Solano Ave., Berkeley). 510-525-6888 or
