Everybody’s a music critic. Well, thankfully, not everyone. But two of the profession's best and brightest, Greil Marcus and Nat Hentoff, will be appearing on the Front Range’s cultural radar over the next two months.

First up is Marcus, who will be giving a free lecture on January 28 at Colorado College’s Gaylord Hall.

The author is perhaps best known for Mystery Train, his extremely erudite cultural history of rock 'n' roll. A former reviews editor at Rolling Stone, he’s written for publications ranging from Creem to Artforum. Real Life Rock, a compendium of his columns of the same name, was published last year by Yale University Press.

Meanwhile, the renowned Nat Hentoff will be making an appearance — albeit a strictly cinematic one — as part of Denver’s 20th Annual Jewish Film Festival

The Pleasures of Being Out of Step, a biography about the former Village Voice jazz critic and accomplished civil libertarian activist, will screen February 20. Filmmaker David L. Lewis will be in attendance.
