In collaboration with Beacon Sound we’re please to present Jessica Hopper in conversation with Erica Anderson (EMA) to celebrate the release of her new book, The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic (Featherproof Books, 2015). Join us at Beacon Sound (3636B N Mississippi Ave) for a reading and discussion, afterward hop two doors down to Reading Frenzy for the signing. Beacon Sound will be hosting an after party! More event details coming soon…

Jessica Hopper’s music criticism has earned her a reputation as one of the firebrands of the form, a keen observer and fearless critic not just of music, but the culture around it, revealing new truths that often challenge us to consider what it is to be a fan. With this premiere volume, spanning from her punk fanzine roots to her landmark piece on R. Kelly’s past, The First Collection leaves no doubt why the New York Times has called Hopper’s work “influential.” Not merely a selection of two decades of Hopper’s most engaging, thoughtful and humorous writing, this book serves as a document of the last 20 years of American music making and the shifting landscape of music consumption.

Through this vast range of album reviews, essays, columns, interviews, and oral histories, Hopper chronicles what it is to be truly obsessed with music, the ideas in songs and albums, how fantasies of artists become complicated by real life, and just what happens when you follow that obsession into muddy festival fields, dank basements, corporate offices or court records.

Jessica Hopper is a music and culture critic whose work regularly appears in GQ, Rolling Stone, The Village Voice, and the Chicago Tribune. She is a senior editor at The Pitchfork Review and the music editor at Rookie. Her essays have appeared in Best Music Writing for 2004, 2005, 2007, 2010, and 2011. Hopper was the longtime music consultant for This American Life. Her book, The Girls’ Guide to Rocking, was named one of 2009′s Notable Books For Young Readers by the American Library Association. She lives in Chicago with her husband and young sons.
