P-Orridge, Gira In Rare Appearances

Genesis P-Orridge, leader of experimental-noise band Psychic TV, and former Swans leader Michael R. Gira will read from their respective novels at New York's Tonic club Dec. 13. P-Orridge will be reading from his upcoming book, "23 Reasons To Abandon Your Species," while Gira will read from his novel, "The Consumer," as well as from new works. The rare appearances -- P-Orridge has been in self-imposed exile for a number of years and the two rarely give public readings -- are part of the Sunday night music series curated by former American Music Club leader Mark Eitzel.
