Sylvie Simmons talks about "I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen" at SF's Booksmith, Sept. 12th

British music journalist Sylvie Simmons will appear at Haight Street's The Booksmith on Wednesday,Leonard Cohen I'm your man September 12th at 7:30pm to talk about her new book I'm Your Man: The Life of Leonard Cohen

Based on a wealth of research, including exclusive interviews with Cohen himself, I'm Your Man is the definitive work on Leonard Cohen’s life and career. Simmons also spoke to over a hundred key figures in Cohen’s life -- among them Cohen’s main muses: the women in his life, close childhood friends, producers and artists who have worked on his albums, and contemporary artists that have worked with Cohen or have been influenced by his work (such as David Crosby, Philip Glass, Judy Collins, Rufus Wainwright, Jackson Browne, and many more).

Starting in Montreal, Cohen's birthplace and where he first found fame as a poet in the fifties, I'm Your Man follows his trail via London and the Greek island of Hydra to New York in the sixties, where Cohen launched his career in music. From there, it traces the arc of his prodigious achievements to his remarkable retreat when, in the mid-nineties on the cusp of marriage to a beautiful actress and enjoying the success of his best-selling album to date, he entered a monastery on a rocky mountaintop. He returned to find his bank accounts bled dry and was forced back onto the road at age seventy-three for a wildly successful three-year world tour.

On Thursday, September 20th, Cinema SF and folkYEAH present the sixth installment of City Scenes, theit came from beneath the sea on-going series that pairs musicians with their favorite San Francisco films.

This month, local folk string-band The Brothers Comatose, who Brothers Comatoserecently sold out the Great American Music Hall for their album release show, have picked a winner with one of the only monster distruction movies based in San Francisco! Yes, it's Ray Harryhausen's It Came from Beneath the Sea! Preceding the screening, The Brothers Comatose will play a set of vintage sea-shanties, maritime folk numbers, and their own homespun Americana-tinged originals.

Get advance tickets at www.cinemasf.com/vogue or at the Vogue Theatre box office!

More about It Came from Beneath the Sea:

Hollywood has put San Francisco through a lot. From Pod People infesting the Civic Center in Invasion of the Body Snatchers to Steve McQueen’s automotive carnage in Bullitt, audiences and filmmakers alike have always taken a certain glee in seeing havoc run amok in the picturesque hills and dollhouse neighborhoods of San Francisco. But in 1955, Columbia Pictures’ It Came from Beneath the Sea took SF destruction to Godzilla-like proportions. The plot is classic cold-war sci-fi: nuclear testing in the Pacific Ocean has roused the ire of a giant octopus that starts sinking submarines and the odd cargo liner before setting its sights on the Golden Gate Bridge. With stop animation by special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen, It Came from Beneath the Sea is a classic of the golden-age of monster movies and a rarely screened San Francisco treat.
