Astral Weeks: A JP Music Festival Fundraiser
Doyle's - 3484 Washington St, Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts 02130

Join us at Doyle's Cafe as Tres Gatos presents JP-resident Ryan Walsh reading from his new Penguin Press book, "Astral Weeks: A Secret History of 1968." The book is filled with Boston musical history and the origins of Van Morrison's classic and influential album—and lots of Boston history we bet you don’t know. 

Walsh will read passages, answer questions, and sign copies of the book (which will also be available at Doyle's from representatives from Tres Gatos for purchase, along with choice vinyl of Van Morrison's releases). 

Recommended donation of $10, with all proceeds going directly to the JP Music Festival!

Tres Gatos has been a JP Music Festival Stage Sponsor since the fest started, and the event will raise funds for the 8th annual JP Music Festival, to be held Saturday, September 8, 2018.
