The Go-Go’s play the Crypto Arena tonight but if you want a more personal experience with them head over to The Last Bookstore on Friday. It’s a double dose of Go-Go’s goodness as L.A.’s own Gina Schock and Kathy Valentine come together to discuss both musicians’ new books. Schock’s “Made In Hollywood” and Valentine’s “All I Ever Wanted” provide two different, personal glimpses into the lives of the iconic drummer and bassist. Schock’s is a photographic tribute to The Go-Gos while Valentine’s is an autobiography tracing her roots and rock star life. Vintage Los Angeles’ Alison Martino interviews the ladies and actress Beverly D’Angelo will read from both books. There will also be a book signing and photo ops for those who buy a $60 ticket bundle.
Panel admission is $10. Fri., April 1st, 8-10 p.m. The Last Bookstore, 453 S. Spring St. Downtown L.A. More info at lastbookstorela.com.
