The Legendary John Lurie at Book Soup Friday 7/18

We’re all in for a treat this week because John Lurie will be at Book Soup on Friday July18, at 7:00 pm to discuss and sign his new book: “A Fine Example of Art“.

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“.image_thumbnaileraspx.jpg

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.

Book Soup is located at 8818 Sunset Blvd. W. Hollywood CA 90069. For more info please call 310-659-3110.

  1. My short film “Under There” starring Richard Edson of “Stranger than Paradise” is competing against two other films for a chance to air on television in NY this Saturday night. Please visit Reel Thirteen, check out “Under There,” and vote your conscience! Thanks!

  2. My husband turned me on to “fishing with john” and we will randomly quote various episodes. our favorite quote is “this is a horse.”

    He even did a fishing cameo in an episode of SpongeBob!

  3. I know! Love them, and especially since it’s THE guy who does all the Frontline shows. (Sorry, don’t know his name off hand.)

    “These are real men.”
