Lit Rock

From the New Sounds Live concert series, the band One Ring Zero presents its “author project,” with readings and lyrics (and some performances) by authors Rick Moody, Paul Auster, and Siri Hustvedt. The show was recorded last fall at the World Financial Center's Winter Garden Atrium. ORZ and their reinforcements, performed a bawdy song or two, a catchy soon-to-be classic-"Kiss Me, You Brat," and there were some additional surprises, like Paul Auster's daughter as a vocalist!
