“The first time I drank piss was on a fire escape overlooking downtown Los Angeles” – that’s the first line of NOFX: The Hepatitis Bathtub and Other Stories, and it’s a pretty good precursor for what the rest of this book holds. NOFX, formed in 1983 by Fat Mike, Eric Melvin, Erik “Stinky” Sandin and Aaron “El Hefe” Abeyta, is arguably one of the most influential punk rock bands ever to come out of SoCal, and in the past three decades of touring, they’ve collected a trove of stories about fetishes, murder, suicide, addiction, poor eating habits and more than one anecdote about pee. If you want to hear more tales of debauchery from the horse’s mouth, NOFX is coming to Orlando for a book signing for Bookmark It at East End Market, perhaps the most unlikely pairing of artist and venue since last week’s Kronos Quartet concert in the Villages. Book purchase is required for admission, but be warned: They’re signing books only – no records, no body parts, no catheter bags.
7-9 p.m. Wednesday, April 20 | East End Market, 3201 Corrine Drive | bookmarkitorlando.com
