Lesser Gods is gearing up to release their new title Lighters In The Sky: The All Time Greatest Concerts, 1960-2016 by Corbin Reiff on October 10, 2017. Reiff is currently the deputy music editor at Uproxx and has contributed to several publications such as Consequence of Sound, Guitar World, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Spin, and The AV Club. As a live show enthusiast and resident of Chicago
(a hotspot for concerts and festivals like Lollapalooza, Pitchfork Music
Fest, and Riot Fest), Reiff was inspired to research and create a year-by-year account of the best concerts from 1960 to 2016 in one book while also including the '#1 Single of the Year' and the '#1 Album of the Year' for each year.
Lighters In The Sky features transcendent moments from music legends, from the King of Rock 'n' Roll and the King of Pop to Queen
Bey. These shows made jaws drop and changed music history. Each concert narrative makes readers feel as if they're at the show, experiencing the excitement as it happened. There are heaping servings of classic rock, rap and pop, but the scope of artists and genres is vast and there's something for music fans of all stripes. There are dozens of music icons, including Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Prince, Nirvana, Green Day
and Jay-Z. Relive festivals that changed music history, including Monterey Pop, Woodstock and Lollapalooza.
