Girl in a Band: Former Sonic Youth Bassist Kim Gordon Hits the Road with Memoir
Kim Gordon, best known as Sonic Youth’s bassist, is heading out on a tour of a different kind in February — a book tour.
The noise rock queen now recording in Body/Head has penned a memoir, called Girl in a Band, which she’ll discuss in an 11-stop book tour featuring Q&A sessions with literary, music, and art professionals, according to Rolling Stone. For example, on March 5 in Santa Monica, she’ll talk with Aimee Mann (also known to play bass).
The book promises a look at not only Gordon’s music, but also her time in Sonic Youth, her past marriage to fellow Sonic Youth member Thurston Moore, her relationship with her daughter and more. Girl in a Band will be released Feb. 24.
