Simon Reynolds: "Retromania: Pop Culture's Addiction to Its Past" 

When: Wed., Sept. 28, 7:30 p.m. 2011

During the Renaissance, artists admired Roman and Greek classicism; in the 1980s, the Fifties were all the rage; now, at the start of the 21st century's second decade, retro-fetishism is so accelerated that we're already recycling the Nineties. In Retromania, Simon Reynolds (the stellar Rip It Up and Start Again) sifts through pop music's recycle bin to ask whether or not we'll ever have original art again. Lace up your Docs and head to Pegasus Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on Wednesday, Sept. 28. 7:30 p.m., free. 510-649-1320 or PegasusBookstore.com
