"Don't let The Other Night at Quinn's: New Adventures in the Sonic Underground scare you. Yes, it's a creative non-fiction collection about the explosive uncertainty of free jazz in a diner-turned-club in upstate NY. But you didn't have to do mounds of coke and wreck Italian sports cars to be riveted by Neil Strauss' Motley Crue tell-all, The Dirt. You didn't need to live in a rat-infested apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan to be swept up in Legs McNeil's oral punk history Please Kill Me. And you don't need to embrace the steep wall and seeming chaos of improvised music to enjoy Mike Faloon's The Other Night at Quinn<'s/i>.

Like the best of Ali Smith, David Shields, and Mary Roach, it's not just the topic. It's your guide. It's Faloon's approach of deep immersion and careful listening. His wit, openness, and sympathy for whom he's writing about. His absorption of audio pandemonium, filtered through a buzzing membrane, and translated into text as propulsive and vibrant asthe music itself. Mike Faloon is your guide throughout The Other Night at Quinn's, a fascinating window into a community of creators surviving beyond the mainstream in an otherwise overlooked outpost of the cultural underground that cuts across distinctions of culture, gender, race, age, and genre.

The Other Night at Quinn's is a circuitous anatomy of a scene where initially opaque and elliptical experiences are transformed into the rewards of deeper understanding and humanity."-Razorcake/Gorksy Press
