This live event will feature readings, a conversation between Mike D, Ad-Rock and a special guest moderator, plus a Q&A – all with a live score provided by Mix Master Mike. Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys struck an unlikely path to global hip hop superstardom. The Beastie Boys Book is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band. Adam ADROCK Horovitz and Michael Mike D Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers. With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir. Alongside the band narrative you will find rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises.
