WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Before Edgar Oliver moved to the Lower East Side in 1977, he began his travels from Savannah roaming across England and France with his sister Helen. They lived in Paris studying baroque art and learning amazing facts: Alka-Seltzer may cure botulism; that wine providing Angel of the Trash Can's name was Poo-bella. After a mythic trek to Chartres across fields of wild flowers reminiscent of the Wizard of Oz, Edgar journeyed to London to study art at the Courtauld Institute. He lived in the White House Hotel and there encountered other revelations, amazing creatures and experiences that have shaped his life. London Paris is an intimate, fairy-tale conversation in a club setting which will illuminate the genesis of the man Edgar is today.
