Carrie Brownstein launches HUNGER MAKE ME A MODERN GIRL: A MEMOIR

Oh dear! I can't believe how exciting this news is. We're so very proud to be hosting the launch for Carrie Brownstein's first, highly anticipated memoir! HUNGER MAKES ME A MODERN GIRL: A MEMOIR is the story of Brownstein's formative years in the Olympia, Washington Riot Grrrl scene up until Sleater-Kinney's hiatus after their acclaimed album The Woods and details her ascent from ardent music fan to the beloved and pioneering performer she is today.
Oh yeah, we're fans alright and not just of her musical endeavours - in the influential punk rock outfit Excuse 17, classic indie heroes (and recently reunited) Sleater-Kinney, and her supergroup Wild Flag - but also her comedy work, alongside fellow musician-turned-comedian Fred Armisen in the Emmy and Peabody award-winning sketch-comedy sensation Portlandia.
Carrie has written the book everyone has been waiting for. It looks inside the Riot Grrrl scene in Olympia from the outside in—from a fan to the stage, and what happens when your dream becomes your nightmare. So many times while reading this book I screamed, “Yes!” inside. You can feel Carrie’s visceral guitar swirling energy on every page. An amazing writer.
And, as if that weren't enough, joining on-stage in conversation will be Pitchfork senior editor, Jessica Hopper!
Hopper's newest collection THE FIRST COLLECTION OF CRITICISM BY A LIVING FEMALE ROCK CRITIC is a Librairie D+Q bestseller and staff favourite. We're so happy to have her here as well!
Tickets go on sale Friday, October 9th and 10am ($15 or free with a pre-purchase of HUNGER MAKES ME A MODERN GIRL at the shop, 211 Bernard Ouest) don't miss out on grabbing a couple for what will be one of the most exciting events of the year.
