­Paul Lukas and Liz Clayton are the Forewords, a musicless band that u­ses short lectures and slideshows to present unusual and entertaining revelations lurking within the everyday. From the lofty perch of Cabinet's tall chairs, they'll deliver engaging presentations on such unlikely subjects as unpersuasively repurposed retail husks, the underappreciated world of trade magazines, or the design history of butchery charts.
