sonic youth takes nyc (for a month)

Our favorite LA bookstore, FAMILY, has started a month-long residency in Tribeca.

On Saturday they'll be hosting a free and open to the public Sonic Youth extravaganza. Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore will be performing as Mirror/Dash (yup, also the name of Kim's clothing line.) The coolest couple in the world will also be hanging around to sign two new art books: Sensational Fix and Kim Gordon: The Noise Paintings. Both books will be sold at FAMILY.

Sensational Fix is a 784-page tome that includes two 7-inch LPs featuring unreleased songs by each member of the band.

Kim Gordon: The Noise Paintings is being released alongside the gallery exhibition of the same name. It's a portfolio of "Kim Gordon’s recent explorations using paint, lyrics, and personal catch phrases to create a collision of the verbal and the visual, and the discovery of something quite other." The exhibit also runs through the month at John McWhinnie @ Glenn Horowitz Bookseller & Art Gallery at 64th & Park. The special edition book (there are only 200) will comprise 26 lettered copies enclosed in a custom cloth box with an original painting and recording laid in, and will also be sold at the gallery.
