Patty Schemel in Conversation With Janet Weiss

Patty Schemel was a drummer at the epicenter of the Seattle grunge scene in the early '90s, best known for her work with the alternative rock band Hole. With surprising candor and wit, Schemel intimately documents the events surrounding her exit from the band in 1998 that led to her dramatic descent into a life of homelessness and crime on the streets of Los Angeles and her difficult but rewarding path to sobriety after over 20 serious attempts to get clean. Hit So Hard (Da Capo) chronicles the extraordinary coming-of-age of a musician and an addict during the last great era of rock 'n' roll excess. Schemel will be joined in conversation by Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss.
