Description

Come celebrate the launch of Matt Brennan's new book 'Kick It: A Social History of the Drum Kit' published by Oxford University Press.

This book is not just for drummers, but for all music fans with an interest in provocative takes on popular music history. Taking on the history of race relations, global migration, and the tension between high and low culture, author and music historian Matt Brennan establishes the drum kit as a key transformative invention of our times.

Free entry and free snacks catered by Stereo Cafe Bar. The book will be for sale at the event at a 30% discount from retail price. The event will also feature a solo performance on a vintage interwar drum kit by jazz drummer Stu Brown.

"Kick It is an enthralling read." - Simon Frith (author of Performing Rites)

"Compulsory reading." - Bill Bruford (Drummer for Yes, King Crimson, and solo works)
