You probably know this already but in case you just arrived from another galaxy: John Lurie is a national treasure.
- You like music? He can make music. He spent more than 20 years fronting various incarnations of The Lounge Lizards.
- You like movies? Lurie starred in the classic Jim Jarmusch films “Stranger Than Paradise” and “Down By Law“.
- How about TV? John Lurie wrote, produced, directed and starred in one of the greatest shows to ever appear on TV. the delightfully entertaining “Fishing with John“.
That’s probably creativity for three lifetimes but thankfully John hasn’t stopped yet. In the past few years John has published two collections of artwork, “Learn To Draw” published in 2006 and “A Fine Example of Art” which was published this year; he’ll discuss and sign it for you this Friday at 7:00 pm.
