Rob Harvilla: 60 Songs that Explain the '90s

Writer and podcaster Rob Harvilla visits the Appel Salon to regale music lovers with tales from his new book 60 Songs That Explain the ‘90s, a companion to the #1 music podcast on Spotify. Before the talk, enjoy a round of ‘90s Music Bingo at our special pre-show event.

The 1990s were a chaotic and gritty and utterly magical time for music, a confounding barrage of genres and lifestyles and superstars, from grunge to hip-hop, from sumptuous R&B to rambunctious ska-punk, from Axl to Kurt to Missy to Santana to Tupac to Britney. In 60 Songs that Explain the ‘90s, Ringer music critic Rob Harvilla reimagines all the earwormy, iconic hits Gen Xers pine for with vivid historical storytelling, sharp critical analysis, rampant loopiness, and wryly personal ruminations.

Rob Harvilla will be interviewed by CBC Radio's Elamin Abdelmahmoud about the bizarre, joyous, and inescapable songs from a decade we both regret entirely and miss desperately.

Q&A and book signing to follow. Books available for purchase.
