STG Presents Kim Gordon's Girl In A Band, A Conversation with Bruce Pavitt at The Neptune in Seattle on Monday, March 2, 2015. Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, will be talking with Bruce Pavitt of Sub Pop Records about her new memoir, Girl in a Band. Kim Gordon is a musician, vocalist, visual artist, record producer, video director, fashion designer, and actress. Gordon, who started out as a visual artist, rose to prominence as the bassist, guitarist, and vocalist of post punk experimental rock band Sonic Youth, which she formed with Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo in 1981. In 1990, Gordon and Spike Jonze co-directed The Breeders video “Cannonball.” In 1993, Kim launched her own fashion line, X-Girl, and continues to work in fashion from time to time. She has appeared in several films, including Gus Van Sant’s Last Days, as well as episodes of Gossip Girl and Girls. In 2012, after the breakup of Sonic Youth, Gordon formed Body/Head with her friend Bill Nace. In June of 2015, the 303 Gallery in New York will feature a show of her work. In her memoir, Girl in a Band, Kim tells her story of life as an artist and as one of the first women of rock and roll. As a founding member of Sonic Youth, she and the band played an integral role in building a vocabulary of music - paving the way for Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins and many other acts. Gordon opens up as never before, examining the route from girl to woman in uncharted territory - music, art career, marriage, motherhood, what partnership means - and what happens when that identity dissolves. Evocative and edgy, filled with the sights and sounds of a changing world and a transformative life, Girl in a Band is the fascinating chronicle of a remarkable journey and an extraordinary artist.
