An Artistic Venture
by the Kurt Vonnegut
Museum and Library
See below for general
Kurt Vonnegut loved music – so much so that he said the following:
“If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph:
THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED
FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
Since its founding, the Kurt Vonnegut Museum and Library (KVML) has hosted a number of musical and spoken word performances. These occasional performances will now continue under a new moniker: Arlene’s House of Music and Imperial Jazz, named after the record store and jazz club that once occupied space in our building. We’ll host performers of a variety of musical genres, as well as spoken word readings of poetry, prose, short stories, more. The series is sponsored by Sun King Brewery. Unless otherwise specified, all events run from 5:30 pm to 7 pm and advance $12 admission tickets are for sale on Eventbrite.
