Celebrating the launch of his new memoir, Thomas Dolby ("She Blinded Me with Science") presents an evening of stories and music. recounting his remarkable career of ups and downs, glamour and corruption, music and tech, and the eventual melding of them all into perfect harmony.

Walking home after being fired from his job at a grocery store, 17-year-old Thomas Dolby stumbled upon the circuit board from an abandoned musical synthesizer, a Transcendent 2000, lying in a dumpster. Few would have realized that this small discovery would lead to a career performing alongside David Bowie, pitching song lyrics to Michael Jackson, or helping create the iconic Nokia cellphone ringtone. Dolby lived amongst legends and eventually became one himself, breaking down walls in the music world with hits like “She Blinded Me with Science,” and then doing the same during the technology revolution in Silicon Valley, as his Beatnik company's technology was eventually licensed and embedded into over two billion wireless devices.
