No Setlist by Jennifer Benningfield out now!
 
No Setlist by Jennifer Benningfield out now

What do you do when you see your favorite band perform live 40 times over 11 years? If you're an aspiring author like Jenn Benningfield, you write a book about it. No Setlist is not just a compilation of Sonic Youth concert reviews covering the time period May 1998 to May 2009. It is more than anything else an unabashed love story--of the creative spirit, of friends, of discoveries, of life. Aided and abetted by 44 pages of tremendous color photos (some personal, most shots from select concerts), these journals immerse you into the experience of countless miles on the bus or plane, exploring the sights, and meeting numerous other Sonic Youth fans at home and abroad. No Setlist is a must-have for not only Sonic Youth fans, but also anyone seeking to understand the unique mindset of that beautiful beast, the "hardcore fan."

100 in the first pressing, but there will be more after

jennthebenn 07.15.2009 03:56 PM

Damn, how did I miss that question? Thanks for stepping in, Pantos.
And all 100 are numbered.

SYRFox 07.15.2009 03:57 PM

Rupert 'Stiles' Stilinski 07.15.2009 04:01 PM

I want a copy, but I don't think I could get it before I move (on the 24th)... any ideas?

jennthebenn 07.15.2009 04:05 PM

I'm sending the first batch out on the 21st; I could do second day Air
and get it there on the 23rd.

notyourfiend 07.15.2009 04:45 PM

Congrads! I just ordered it. I don't know where you wanted me to leave a message. The order from Rachel Levy is from me though.

I can't wait to read!

nicfit 07.15.2009 04:52 PM

Please keep one for me!! :D

I can't check out the page to buy it now (I think there's one, right?), I'll do it tomorrouuuw.

stu666 07.15.2009 05:05 PM

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to jennthebenn again.

noisereductions 07.15.2009 07:12 PM

jennthebenn 07.16.2009 11:46 AM

Haha! I hope everyone who gets one digs it. It's a hell of a book, but I'm biased.

blunderbuss 07.16.2009 02:42 PM

Just ordered one!

Jenn, I can't believe you're not charging extra for international shipping...

jennthebenn 07.16.2009 02:48 PM

You and a few others. I stand by it. My future books will be a different
story, though.

nicfit 07.16.2009 02:59 PM

does this mean 10 bucks would cover the book + int shipping??
this is plain unfair.
Still, I just placed my order :D.

Rob Instigator 07.16.2009 03:46 PM

You've been -FUPPETED- Jenn.

I am very excited.

jennthebenn 07.16.2009 03:55 PM
