I'm Allison. I see a ton of theatre. I'm a huge fan of Green Day, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Weezer, Oasis, Adam Rapp, Emily Giffin, and Shakespeare. I run sometimes, and do yoga always. My life has changed a lot in the last year, so this is my account of it all.

So I just finished Julie Klausner’s I Don’t Care About Your Band.  I fully enjoyed it though it took me about 80 pages to get into it (is this becoming a recurring theme in my reading selections lately?).  Though her overall intentions for writing the book were awesome, the end was a little too somber and serious, what a downer!   But I did relate to a lot of her stories and I’ve made a lot of the realizations already that she made in her mid-and-late-twenties.

She is full of hilarious one-liners and obvious life lessons that are obvious to women everywhere that we never really admit before we hear it from a fellow-woman.  I loved the chapter around page 100 when she talked about being fired from the theatrical PR firm who handled publicity for The Producers (aka Barlow-Hartman) and how she had an email fling with the star of Sweeney Todd (aka Michael Ceveris).  Of course she doesn’t name either of those things, but if you know your theatre, you know who she’s talking about. 

If you’re looking to laugh, definitely pick up a copy at your nearest book store.  

Confession: I read the title as I Don’t Care About Your Brand about seven hundred times before I realized it was actually I Don’t Care About Your Band.  Oops.
