  • Will Oldham reads Rudy Wurlitzer at Basilica Industria in Hudson on April 28.
April 28. Besides telling the rocker’s own story, last month’s profile of Melissa Auf der Maur unveiled her involvement in the reopening of the city’s Basilica Industria building as a cutting-edge arts center. This kickoff also celebrates the launch of the Drag City record label’s new line of audio books with a live reading by singer-songwriter/actor Will Oldham (Palace Brothers, Bonnie “Prince” Billy) of Slow Fade, the latest from Hudson author/screenwriter Rudy Wurlitzer (Pat Garret and Billy the Kid, Two-Lane Blacktop). Oldham will be accompanied by musician Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), and a slide show of photographs by Lynn Davis tops it off. In your face, Brooklyn. (The first annual Ramp Fest, featuring food, live music, and more, happens April 30.) Donation suggested. 6pm. Hudson.

Speaking of...

  • Will Oldham comes to the Basilica Hudson for a live reading on April 28.
