KUT's Views & Brews presents:
Leonard Cohen a Life in Art


Leonard Cohen just celebrated his 78th birthday while on a world tour with his new album “Old Ideas” and Oct. 31 and Nov. 01 he and his band will kick off the US portion of this tour right here in Austin, TX. Join Roscoe Beck, Cohen’s collaborator, producer, bassist and local Austinite, along with Sylvie Simmons author of I’m Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen, along with Cohen’s band members to explore the life and art of living legend Leonard Cohen. What does it mean to live your art? How and why does his work continue to impact generations of artists, thinkers, and seekers?

The event is being organised by Austin Radio station KUT and will be held in the Cactus Cafe.

(The Cactus Cafe & Bar is on Guadalupe Street across from the University Co-op and is located in the southwest corner of the Texas Union building. The Texas Union, at the corner of 24th and Guadalupe, is on the University of Texas campus. Entrance to the Cactus is through the main West Mall Lobby.)Views and Brews is free, but there's a suggested donation of $10. Seats are pretty limited so get there early.

For anyone coming to Austin earlier in the week - or if you know anyone who lives there - I'll be doing a couple of my own book-related events in Austin: readings, signings and a couple of Leonard Cohen songs on the uke with a local guest musician or two.

Here they are:

Oct 27, 9pm-9:45pm, I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen, with Sylvie Simmons. Lit Crawl Austin: Shangri-La (1016 E. 6th St.) Part of the Texas Book Festival
Oct 30, 5pm-6.30pm I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen, with Sylvie Simmons. Waterloo Records (600A N. Lamar, Austin, 512-474-2500)

Yes... getting very excited now! Mark and I will be at the meetup, as will my Dad and his lady who are over here on a visit from Cyprus. They were not previously Leonard fans, but we played them the "Songs From the Road" DVD the other evening and they were hooked, so I had to find another two tickets!!!

Looking forward to meeting friends old and new.

Greetings Fellow Friends of Leonard,

I've reconfirmed our pre-concert Meet-Up with the manager of Gabriel's Cafe in the AT&T Hotel & Conference center so all there is to do now is count down the days!

Anyone else attending the concert who wants to join us Oct 31 anytime between 3:30 to 7 p.m., please do. The gathering is NOT a private function; it will be very informal so come on by.

Thanks KatLaw and Chelle.

Looks like about 25 Friends of Leonard will be at the Meet-Up. I understand Leonard and company have been in Austin for the past three days rehearsing. Wonder if the set list will change from the Europe tour.
