Rob Spillman’s Spotify playbook for his memoir, All Tomorrow’s Parties, includes the eccentric surrealist composer Erik Satie along with the Sex Pistols.

Add Garrard Conley reading from Boy Erased, his memoir about growing up the son of a Baptist preacher and being put into a gay conversion-therapy program, and the music of Erin Lovett of Four Eyes, and you’ve got one hot ticket. What costume will the poor girl wear?
