Marc Spitz At Frequency North
The 10th season of “Frequency North,” the visiting writers series at The College of Saint Rose, rocks on with novelist and rock writer Marc Spitz. Spitz will read from his latest works tonight at 7:30 PM in the Saint Joseph Hall Auditorium in Albany.
SPIN magazine hired Spitz in 1997, where he wrote more than a dozen cover stories on artists as diverse as Axl Rose, Weezer, Trent Reznor and Franz Ferdinand. Dubbed the “hipster playwright,” Spitz’s plays include Retail Sluts, I Wanna Be Adored and P.S. It’s Poison.
In his new book: Twee, Spitz explores the first great cultural movement since Hip Hop: an old-fashioned and yet highly modern aesthetic that’s embraced internationally by teens, twenty and thirty-somethings and even some Baby Boomers; creating hybrid generation known as Twee.
