I love reading artist bios...these ones at the Central public library downtown briefly caught my interest, and then I passed:
Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes
Amy Grant's seemed like it was not scandalous enough, just lots about her winning Dove Awards (that's like the Christian Grammys!) I'm not sure Katy Perry has done enough interesting stuff to merit a bio, but I do kind of regret not getting the Phish book because I read this interview with a Phish fan by Jeremy Larson a few weeks ago and think the culture is more interesting than the music.
Danny the Street
Also, when I was checking out better stuff my librarian was the handsome frontman from Danny the Street and I ended up going to his show at the Comet the next day. It was darker and more rockin' than his old band Noddy, and plus the new artwork has a collage homage to Live Through This by beloved Tacoma artist Eric Olson.
