Coffee Room

Coach House is watching you. (We’re also declassifying a cache of stealthy Fall titles.)

Geoff Pevere, author of Gods of the Hammer: The Teenage Head Story, has curated a playlist of seventeen songs containing essential tracks by Teenage Head as well as by bands that influenced their high-energy style. Read Geoff's annotations while you listen and (re)discover how Teenage Head is 'capable of sweetening and shredding your eardrums at the same time.'

The Coach House (HQ of Coach House Books and Coach House Printing) has a charmingly ramshackle coffee room. And for over 45 years, that room has served as a meeting space for writers, publishers, artists, readers, musicians and more. It's a pretty informal space with some very informal gatherings, but throughout 2014, the Coach House is hosting a monthly Kaffeeklatsch.
