Rock Star Coloring Book

Last night 300 literary indie rock fans crowded into Housing Works Bookstore Cafe to watch Elvis Perkins sing and promote “The Indie Rock Coloring Book.” GalleyCat was there, shooting that short video of Perkins’ gospel-style sing-a-long and paging through the new book.

The nostalgic publishing project features black & white activities pages inspired by rock stars Broken Social Scene, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and Bon Iver. Created by the nonprofit organization, Yellow Bird Project, the profits go towards charities of the rock stars’ choice.

Housing Works will feature more rock star art events over the next month: a benefit art show with Ryan Adams and an evening of music with Salman Rushdie. Follow this link for a complete listing of upcoming events at the bookstore.
