Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders: A Live Rock Biography

Greensboro Project Space presents a unique rock-&- roll-&- reading event. Chrissie Hynde, leader of the Hall of Fame band the Pretenders, is one of America's foremost rockers: a musical force across four decades, a voice for the ages, a feminist icon, and a great songwriter who has given us iconic songs like: “Brass in Pocket,” “Back on the Chain Gang,” and “I’ll Stand by You.”

Hynde’s biographer, Adam Sobsey, is joined by a combo of local musicians for an evening of exploration of the music and life of one of rock music’s greats. Sobsey will read from his book’s investigations of several Pretenders songs—from early classics to late-career gems—each accompanied by live renditions of those songs. It’s a true School of Rock: informative, fun, and properly loud. A Q&A will follow, and signed copies of Sobsey’s book will be available at a discount.

This event is pay-what- you-can. Donations for the band are gladly welcomed.

Adam Sobsey’s book Chrissie Hynde: A Musical Biography (Univ. of Texas Press 2017) was called “gloriously comprehensive […] truly does deliver the goods,” by Pop Matters. He has written about music for The Paris Review, the Independent Weekly, and elsewhere. He lives in Durham.

Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge

Savanna Williams is a Wish Recipient through Make-A-Wish. Less than 3 years ago, she needed a walker to get down the hallway. Now, she's giving back by participating in the Make-A-Wish Trailblaze Challenge! The Trailblaze Challenge is a 28.3 mile hike all in one day to raise funds to grant wishes for children suffering life-threatening illnesses. Just like with Savanna, these wishes go a long well not only for the mental and emotional well-being for the child AND family, but for the physical as well. Savanna's goal is to raise $5,000 for the Challenge so that she can grant the wish of another child and pay it forward. her donation page and story can be found at
