Art After Dark - Dave Haslam book event

Dave Haslam with Paul John Dykes

A late night venue can be a city’s greatest asset, a life-changing buzz, a cultural catalyst. At this unique event, DJ and writer Dave Haslam will be discussing big nights out; Picasso, Haring and the Hacienda; and the links between art and life after dark. Dave will be joined in this celebration of café bars, clubs, and venues by interviewer Paul John Dykes (A State of Mind).

Dave Haslam is a former DJ at the Hacienda in Manchester, a journalist and the author of several other full-length and short format books. His DJ-ing has taken him to the likes of Berlin, Lima, New York, and Paris. His memoir ‘Sonic Youth Slept on My Floor’ (2018) was proclaimed Book of the Year by Gilles Peterson. His current project is a series of short format books; subjects have included Sylvia Plath, Keith Haring, and the Angry Brigade. The new title - ‘Adventure Everywhere: Pablo Picasso's Paris Nightlife‘ - is the seventh book in the series.

Books will be available for sale (and signing) on the night.
