The book signing at the Fermin Muguruza concert, which took place last Thursday, June 13, at the legendary Bowery Electric, was a first in New York City for Delphine Pontvieux.

“People have their doubts when it comes to setting up book signing events outside the safety zone of a bookstore,” says Pontvieux. “While I enjoy doing those – they are still the best location for book readings, since reading to an audience requires a quiet place to retain people’s attention – it does not really matter anymore when you are just doing a book signing. In fact, I love doing those in locations where people would least expect a book signing to take place at, such as a busy bar, a hip clothing store…or a concert hall.”

 ETA, PINTXTATU, FERMIN MUGURUZA

No frills or fancy table cover tonight: we just deliver the goods!

The event was held at the Bowery Electric in the East Village, a venue owned in part by Jesse Malin of ex-Coney Island High. While it may seem unrelated to set up a book signing at a rock show, there is reason behind the madness: in fact, Fermin Muguruza, frontman of his band Fermin Muguruza Kontrakantxa, was instrumental in helping Delphine at the time she was doing research for her novel ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest. He is also the man who penned the blurb for the book’s back cover. As for Pontvieux, she has been a fan of his music for almost 30 years, from the time she discovered his first band, the radical ska hardcore basque band KORTATU, back when she was eleven years old.
