Tonight Buffalo post industrial event site and Instagram hot-spot Silo City hosts the latest installment of Just Buffalo Literary Center’s Silo City Reading Series, a multi-disciplinary event featuring local and international artists and musicians plus prolific Omaha-based singer/songwriter and lo-fi legend Simon Joyner. A pillar of the Omaha music scene, Joyner has releasing a steady stream of albums and material since the early 90’s, influencing Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes, Better Oblivion Community Center)  and The Mountain Goats while also sharing the singular and noteworthy distinction of having his album played in it’s entirety by BBC Radio 1 legend John Peel.

Simon Joyner will be joined in the magnificent space that awed both Le Corbusier and Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius by noted American poet Bob Hicok, local performance artist, poet, and owner of Rust Belt Books Kristianne Meal, and Buffalo transdisciplinary artist, designer, writer and educator Shasti O’Leary Soudant. The event is free and starts at 7pm.
