Reader contributor Jessica Hopper is on tour to promote her excellent instructive tome, The Girls' Guide to Rocking, and swings by the Hideout at 1 PM tomorrow. She'll be reading from the book and there will be performances by her tourmates, Fucked Up buddy Katie Stelmanis and sister act Ghost Bees, plus three locals: Glass Bricks, preteen R & B combo Fatal Attraction, and Girls Rock! Chicago camper band Circular Convention. I caught Hopper's recent reading at the Harold Washington Library and I have to say that a roomful of preteen girls getting amped about challenging the "pro gear, pro attitude" partriarchal paradigm is one of the most inspiring things I've seen in forever.
