At 22, Chris Stamey left North Carolina and moved to New York City, experiencing and participating in the musical innovations of the 1970s. He became a singer-songwriter and producer, and in his new book, A Spy in the House of Loud: New York Songs and Stories, he takes us back to the auteur explosion happening in New York clubs such as the Bowery’s CBGB, as Talking Heads, R.E.M., and other innovative bands were rewriting the rules. He will be playing music from the book, along with fellow The dB's bandmember Peter Holsapple (keys and guitar), Leah Gibson of Beauty World (cello), and Karen Galvin who is the Assistant Concertmaster at the North Carolina Symphony (violin). Stamey will be in conversation with David Menconi, the News & Observer music correspondent.
