Book Signing / Meet ‘n Greet with Larry Livermore
February 13, 2016 @ 2pm
In 1987, off-the-grid punk agitator Larry Livermore began documenting the burgeoning DIY East Bay punk rock scene with the newly founded Lookout Records. He had no idea this little label, first run out of his solar powered cabin in the Northern California mountains, then a cramped room in the backstreets of Berkeley, would rise
to international prominence, introducing the world to the likes of Green Day, Operation Ivy, and a host of other
artists. How To Ru(i)n A Record Label documents the author s experiences from Gilman Street to Bialystok, Poland, as he
built Lookout from the ground up, only to find himself losing control of the label a mere ten years later, and abruptly walking away from the multi-million dollar company when it was at its peak of success. Throughout that time, however, he was central to the influential scene that gave birth to Gilman Street, Maximum Rocknroll, and a new generation of independent music that has had an everlasting effect on both the underground and mainstream. In the process, he just might even have found himself. Longtime Lookout Records fans will find this book answers all the questions they ever had about the rise and fall of this genuine punk rock institution, and for the uninitiated, this is a document of a time and place where the love of music brought together a bunch of misfits to create a community.
