Steve Albini Writes Fiction

By Lauri Apple in Arts & Entertainment on Sep 21, 2009 9:40PM

Here's legendary music person Steve Albini reading one of his short stories yesterday afternoon at Quimby's. The Medill journalism grad, recording engineer, Shellac frontman and — sorry, womenfolk — newlywed shared three of his works with the public for the first time. Also reading was poet and Kentucky Chrome Revue frontman Brett Eugene Ralph, who read selections from Black Sabbatical — his new collection of poetry out on Sarabande Books.
