Kristin Hersh
Kristin Hersh is a solo artist and founding member of the bands Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave. She is the author of Don’t Suck, Don’t Die: Giving Up Vic Chesnutt, and Rat Girl, which was named one of the ten best rock memoirs ever written by Rolling Stone.
John Doe
John Doe was born in 1977 when he arrived in Los Angeles. His previous life in Tennessee, Wisconsin & Baltimore was a great & fertile time but new music and social changes led him to events that created a life in art. He graduated from Antioch College in Baltimore in 1975, worked as a roofer, aluminum siding mechanic, and ran a poetry reading series. John met Exene Cervenka at the Venice poetry workshop Nov 1976 and he started working with Billy Zoom around the same time. When DJ Bonebrake joined X in mid-1977 the lineup was complete. They released six studio records, five or six singles and one live record from 1978-1993. In April of 2020 X released Alphabetland to great critical acclaim and overwhelming joy from their fans. As one of the last original punk rock bands standing, they continue to tour. Doe has appeared in over 50 films and television productions and is currently working on his 11th solo album at his new home in Austin, Texas.
