Pandemonium Books and Games in Cambridge, MA invites you to join them on November 25th at 7:00pm for “Head-Banging, Dice-Rolling, and Summoning Demons: A Talk about Rock, Dungeons & Dragons, the Occult, and Philosophy”:
How does Led Zeppelin connect to Gary Gygax? Can rock and roll be a religion? Is the Dungeon Master’s guide a holy text? Other than that weird kid who taught you how to play D&D in middle school, is anyone actually chaotic evil? Join three writers and gamers — Christopher Robichaud (http://www.hks.harvard.edu/about/faculty-staff-directory/christopher-robichaud), editor of Dungeons and Dragons and Philosophy; Peter Bebergal (mysterytheater.blogspot.com), author of Season of the Witch: How the Occult Saved Rock and Roll; and Ethan Gilsdorf (ethangilsdorf.com) author of Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks — for a free-ranging discussion about rock, D&D, the occult, philosophy, dungeonmastery, morality, soul craft, and spiritually. We’ll probably talk about the Satan Panic of the 1980s, too, and try to decode that mysterious art on Zeppelin’s Houses of the Holy. Followed by a Q&A and book signing with the authors.
