Part Time Punks devotes an entire evening to the 40+ years of David Bowie's brilliant back catalogue... From psychedelic folk to glitter and glam, from funk to soul and the thin white duke. From Ziggy to Iggy to Eno to Fripp to Bolan to Lennon to Jagger and Lou and Andy and Freddy (Mercury) and even Nicholas Roeg and David Lynch...all the best of Bowie's collaborations will get a spin, too, not to mention his glam contemporaries and post-punk disciples...

AND since Monday is a holiday, which means no work, no school and ALL play...you can ALL come out & dance 'til 2am (and still hit all the BBQs the next day!)

Allison Winn Scotch discusses and signs "In Twenty Years"

DIESEL, A Bookstore

225 26th St., Santa Monica, 90402

7:30pm

DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Allison Winn Scotch to the store to discuss her new novel, In Twenty Years, on Thursday, July 7th at 6:30pm. Twenty years ago, six Penn students shared a house, naively certain that their friendships would endure until the death of their ringleader and dear friend Bea splintered the group for good. Now, mostly estranged from one another, the remaining five reluctantly gather at that same house on the eve of what would have been Bea’s fortieth birthday. Along with the return of the friends come old grudges, unrequited feelings, and buried secrets. Catherine, the CEO of a domestic empire, and Owen, a stay-at-home dad, were picture-perfect college sweethearts but now teeter on the brink of disaster. Lindy, a well-known musician, is pushing middle age in an industry that’s all about youth and slowly self-destructing as she grapples with her own identity. Behind his smile, handsome plastic surgeon Colin harbors the heartbreaking truth about his own history with Bea, and Annie carefully curates her life on Instagram and Facebook, keeping up appearances so she doesn’t have to face the truth about her own empty reality. Reunited in the place where so many dreams began and bolstered by the hope of healing, each of them is forced to confront the past. Allison Winn Scotch is the New York Times bestselling author of six novels, including Time of My Life and The Theory of Opposites. She lives in Los Angeles with her family and their dogs (www.allisonwinn.com).
