HOODRATS AND RUDEHATS

The Hold Steady video is done and viewable . Thats me in the hat and the white pants. Robin, Ian, Miles and Eric Z are all in it too. Chris Thompson's directorial debut, in case you been wondering what came of him post-Monorchid/Circus Lupus.

I saw Common play tonight, and I have to save the spew for print elsewhere, but I have to say it ended my crush, how ever so slight. Might have even ended my respect for him as an artist. The highlight of the show was when the DJ, who was mediocre, did a solo scratch war breakdown midset, which was supposed to hype the crowd but lulled us into zombie-mode, which, given that he was working off of "It Takes 2" is really saying something, Jane leaned over and told me a story about how when she was in 6th grade, her and her best friend did a dance routine to "It Takes 2" for the Grand Rapids Garlic Festival, and her mom made them hammer pants based outfits, and they did not even place. The winner was a 6-year-old girl who wore a red feather boa and did "Fever".
