Maximum spotlight and some tour dates
Feeling lucky to have gone to the Mothercountry Motherfuckers and Crisco Thunder show last night. Video links above-- wish the quality was better on both, because the videos do not capture the power of the performances. Good example of how punk can still push.
Later in the evening I found myself defending Lil Wayne's intelligence and skill, explaining how Kelly Rowland's "Motivation"was the new great instructional baby-making-music track of the season, and comparing Kanye's and Eminem's ability to get at human complexity and failures (that is, when either decides to have content).
And then, all I can listen to is the band Dark Dark Dark and Liz Phair's "Exile in Guyville" album (links to videos for these below).
