Writer extraordinaire and all-around cool cat Claire Zulkey posted an interview with me today.
On Sunday, May 18, I will be appearing at Good Reads @ Good World — a monthly event that I’ve been assured by host and virtuoso Scrabulous opponent Rosie Schapp is the “booziest reading series in New York.” May 18, of course, is the calendar date on which Ian Curtis committed suicide in 1980, and as a tribute I will be reading a portion of the infamous Joy Division footnote found in my oft-mentioned book Perfect From Now On, which, seriously, everyone should just buy already so that I can splurge on some waffles.
WHY I’M ANGRY TODAY
Can you believe that I forgot that tickets for the big ATP New York festival — featuring My Bloody Valentine and Built to Spill (performing the album my book is named after) — went on sale this morning? The gig is already sold out. It’s a little ridiculous.
