PF Sloan presents and signs What's Exactly the Matter with Me?: Memoirs of a Life in Music

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90069

7:00pm

What's Exactly the Matter With Me? is a first-person account of an extraordinary life and pilgrimage through the most fascinating years of American and English musical culture. This is a story of dreams, success, destruction, and miraculous resurrection; the incredible, heartbreaking and inspiring story of one of the greatest songwriters in American music, as well as one of the most elusive and mysterious. P. F. Sloan was a prolific and influential genius from the golden age of the 1960s and a pioneer of folk-rock. Between 1965 and 1967, 150 of his songs were recorded by major acts; 45 of those made the charts. No other songwriter has ever come close to achieving so great a number of hits in such a short period of time. From his little studio at Dunhill Records, P. F. Sloan was a veritable hit-machine, writing for the Mamas & Papas (thats Sloan's infectious guitar lick on "California Dreamin'"), Jan & Dean (the falsetto you hear on most of their hits is Sloan's), Barry McGuire (the brilliant and controversial "Eve of Destruction"), Johnny Rivers ("Secret Agent Man"), the Turtles, the Fifth Dimension, and many, many more. He wrote so many songs in fact that Dunhill sold him as seven different acts. Unsurprisingly, he wound up exhausted and broken, thus beginning a long journey into the wilderness a journey of UFOs and psychiatric hospitals, survival, healing and, ultimately, redemption.

Viper Room Presents : Not In the Face, Your Ugly Sister

Viper Room

West Hollywood, CA 90069

8:00pm

Not In The Face started as a joke. Two friends in Austin, Texas thought it would be funny to start a cover band playing hyperactive renditions of classic R&B, Doo-Wop, and Rock ‘n’ Roll songs. The joke ended when their rock experiment was an unexpected hit.

Your Ugly Sister is crashing energetic beats tying together fuzzed out ripped guitars and howling lyrics.

Mark Miller presents and signs Pain Don't Hurt: Fighting Inside and Outside the Ring

Book Soup LA

8818 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 60069

7:00pm

In 2007, Mark Miller was a rising star in professional kickboxing, until a routine physical uncovered a serious condition that required open-heart surgery. The crisis helped to temporarily reunite his fractured family and made Miller more determined than ever to return to the kickboxing ring. But within a year, his parents and brother were all dead, and Miller's fragile optimism imploded, sending him into a tailspin of drugs and alcohol.  Pain Don't Hurt is a story of incredible tenacity, dedication, and hard work--how one fierce competitor overcame repeated obstacles to realize his dreams. Miller recounts stories ranging from his childhood spent in the Steelers locker room to the surprising life lessons he learned from other fighters to his triumphant return to fighting in a Moscow kickboxing ring. He talks sincerely about family and fatherhood--of the hard lessons about masculinity and violence learned from his father. He also offers an inspiring, exciting, and frank account of the fights--both in and out of the ring--that have shaped him.  A deeply personal account of guts, blood, and glory, Pain Don't Hurt pays tribute to the never-say-die spirit embodied in a man who refuses to back down, no matter the odds. (Anthony Bourdain/Ecco)
