Last Friday, Flavorpill had the rare honor of hosting a true music icon in our very own office. Kristin Hersh, a captivating solo artist and the co-founder of Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave, stopped by with an acoustic guitar and a copy of her fantastic new memoir, Rat Girl . The Flavorpill staff gathered around, campfire-style, as she played us two old favorites — “Hysterical Bending” and “Your Dirty Answer” — and read a dramatic passage from the book, in which she recounts the car accident that transformed her into a musician. We’re sorry you couldn’t be here to enjoy it in person, but at least you can watch the whole thing in the video, by Patrick Letterii, after the jump.
New Yorkers, take note: Hersh will be singing and reading Friday, November 12th at 92Y Tribeca. Buy your tickets here.
