Everyone wants to unplug—but how do you actually do it?
Not your run-of-the-mill book club, Bushwick shows offers a special interaction between audiences and musicians. Bushwick performers present their own original songs inspired by the show’s featured book. This concert features music inspired by Jenny Odell’s How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy. Town Hall hosted Jenny Odell in November 2019 to talk about How to Do Nothing, which is a thrilling critique of the forces vying for our attention that shows us a new way to connect with our environment. In it, Odell wants to give readers permission to be a human, in a body, in a place, to change our perspective away from a focus on “time is money” and higher productivity. Now don’t miss this inspired performance by artists of all ages—including Kristin Chambers, Sean Morse, Jaspar Lepak, Ben Mish, Aaron Starkey, Kate Olson, Jon Yoon, Rowdy Maggie, and host Wes Weddell—offering their responses to this timely work.
Presented by Bushwick Book Club and Town Hall Seattle.
