Just In Time for Summer: “The 11 Types of A**holes Who Attend Music Festivals”

June 12th, 2014 No Comments

Read the handy anthropological guide here, so you can be prepared when you attend Pitchfork and Lollapalooza. I take offense to number 11. Only because it doesn’t include “she” music journalists. Not all music journalists are dudes, dummy. Besides that, all this is true.

Lolla Day 2

August 7th, 2011 1 Comment

Day 2: two disappointing performances back-to-back by two rappers I love: Atmosphere (Slug and Ant on the decks above) and Eminem. So, what gives? Both performances seemed super phoned in and frankly, soul-less. Slug decided to stick to new songs instead of crowd pleasers which is seriously self-gratifying artist bullsh!t; note to all performers: it’s […]
