Why The Ramones Matter & Why The Beach Boys Matter: Readings and Signings

Hey ho, let's go! Join music journalists and authors Donna Gaines and Tom Smucker for an afternoon of reading and reminiscing, followed by a book signing.

Music Matters is a new series of concise books that make outsize arguments for the meaning and legacy of a wide range of popular artists. These short, sharp polemics will make the musical, cultural, experiential, and personal case for the artists we love, all filtered through the consciousness of writers of distinction working in music criticism, journalism, academia, and literature.

We're thrilled to welcome the authors of the first two books in this series, Why The Ramones Matter and Why The Beach Boys Matter, to Rough Draft!
