August 9: Huey Lewis in conversation with Joan Ryan at 142 Throckmorton Theatre

“So, Huey, you worked with Robert Altman.” “Yes, Joan, I did.” “In your work with him, for the film Short Cuts, you appeared in rather rare form for a particular scene on-screen, did you not?” “If you’re referring to the fishing scene where I unzip my jeans and go full-frontal, then yes, I did.” “Now, Huey . . .” “Before you ask any further, Joan, I’ll clear the air—it was a prosthetic.” Yes folks, this exchange could very well be the highlight of Huey Lewis in conversation with Joan Ryan this weekend. Presumably, Lewis will also discuss his dominance of the baby-boomer set in the ’80s with rock anthems like “Stuck with You,” “Hip to be Square,” “The Heart of Rock ’n’ Roll” and “I Want a New Drug” at Throckmorton’s “A-List” series on Monday, Aug. 9, at 142 Throckmorton Theatre. 142 Throckmorton, Mill Valley. 7:30pm. $12–$15. 415.383.9600.
