Fact: There are many unsung heroes in the music business. From the folks making shit sound pitch perfect from behind the soundboards to tour managers that make sure that (name of crazy unreliable rock star here) gets to the gig on time and in one piece, as well as the people tasked with perhaps the most unromantic, yet most important role of all — promoting the damn show!

Legendary producer and promoter Fran Belkin, of Belkin Productions, has spent more than 30 years collecting mementos and memories, all of which found their way into her latest book, Rock This Town! — a transportive front-row seat to a treasure trove of backstage tales, tribulations, and many adventures. Belkin, along with her husband and Belkin Productions co-founder, Jules, will host a Q&A, sign copies of Rock This Town! and, display some goodies from her personal collection.

Fran Belkin will make an appearance at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29, at Third Man Records; 441 W. Canfield St., Detroit; 313-209-5205; thirdmanrecords.com. Belkin will also appear at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 30, at Adat Shalom Synagogue; 29901 Middlebelt Rd., Farmington Hills; Tickets are $20 and include a copy of the book.
