About The Event
Popular music and the occult culture have long been bedfellows, and Peter Bebergal takes us through some of those vibrant manifestations, from Robert Plant's Dionysian to Bowie's alchemical transformations. The spectacle of rock & roll has incorporated esoteric symbols and art, and has even drawn on magical lodge rites and ancient religious practices. As this illustrated lecture shows, the occult is responsible for some rock's most arresting moments. Peter is an acknowledged expert and a great speaker; we promise you a great evening.
Peter Bebergal is the author of Season of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll. He writes on speculative and fringe cultures. Other publications include Strange Frequencies: The Extraordinary Story of the Technological Quest for the Supernatural and many articles, including pieces in Believer, the Times Literary Supplement, the New Yorker, Boing Boing, and the Paris Review.
