Ammon Shea returns to the Book Nook for a third interview. On his initial visit Shea discussed "Reading the OED," a memoir recounting his marvelous dictionary marathon. Fueled by his love of language and massive volumes of espresso, Shea read the entire unabridged Oxford English Dictionary over the course of one year.
Two years ago, Auburndale reunited with the idea of playing a farewell show, but soon talk turned to new material and a new album was underway. The album celebrates and is dedicated to the citizens of Dayton and the other cities listed on the Forbes magazine 10 Dying Cities List. The band made a return visit to the WYSO studios to talk the writing and recording process and share some tracks from Alive in a Dying City.
Auburndale will celebrate the release of Alive in a Dying City on Saturday, November 13 at Blind Bob's.
