Way back in 1980, when I was in a grade school, a classmate brought The Cure compilation album Boys Don’t Cry into our classroom.
Lol Tolhurst, founding member of The Cure, was chatting with Robert Smith in Hawaii in 2013 when he had an epiphany: He would write a book.
Lol Tolhurst is a founding member of The Cure, and he played keyboards with Robert Smith and company until his departure from the band in 1989. Last fall, Lol published Cured: The Tale of Two Imaginary Boys, a memoir of his life as a musician.
The book brings him to DC next week for special appearances at Songbyrd Music House and Record Cafe (2477 18th St. NW, DC) on Tuesday, Feb. 21, and Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar (1104 H St. NE, DC) on Wednesday, Feb. 22.
