9780615310510: No Setlist: Pieces of a Sonic Life

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."

About the Author:

Growing up as the youngest of seven in a family where hard work was prized above all else, Jenn Benningfield learned early in life the value of self-reliance and persistence. What was an otherwise typical childhood was turned on its ear when a fifth grade haiku lesson revealed to the teachers, students and a ten-year-old Benningfield that she had an extraordinary gift for writing, particularly describing everyday occurrences and subjects with fantastic wordplay. This skill for making the normal utterly engrossing to the reader has only grown sharper over time. "No Setlist"--her first book, a nonfiction account of seeing the legendary New York band Sonic Youth live in concert 40 times over 11 years--will win over not only fans of that band, but anyone who enjoys reading about travel or music. Working as a real estate title abstractor in Maryland, Jenn Benningfield is currently working on a novel trilogy that follows several characters over 15 years.
