Kim Gordon's autobiography drops Feb. 24 (via HarperCollins) and it's the first must-read music book of the year. On this week's edition of Billboard's alternative and rock music podcast, we're excited to premiere the first few pages of Girl in a Band via the audiobook version, read by Kim herself.
The excerpt brings us to Sonic Youth's final gig -- a Nov. 14, 2011 festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil -- and Gordon has some harsh words for Thurston Moore.
