EMA Plays A Jag!

The evidence is mounting that all the cool kids play off-set body guitars.  I was surfing on over at EMA’s blog today.  Not only does she use wordpress, but she also plays a Jaguar and a Mustang.

And I found this Paste Magazine post courtesy of Feminist Music Geek’s Twitter Feed.  It’s a video of EMA and Zola Jesus covering Crimson and Clover.  Super fun.

EMA Article In The Chicago Tribune

The Tribune posted an article about Erika Anderson, aka EMA late last week.  There are a few good quotes about women and music.  It’s definitely worth a read.

“What prompted me to pick up a guitar when I was young, was seeing Courtney Love and her band Hole, on MTV in the ’90s,” explains Anderson. “She was the first woman I saw in the mass media — and that had an impact — it was a revelation: ‘I can play guitar!'”

Pitchfork Is This Weekend. Are You Going?

Ok, I have a confession.  I quit going to Pitchfork two years ago when the price went to $40 a day.  It’s always blisteringly hot that weekend, and I just think that $120 dollars is too much to pay for a weekend of music.  But I am old and curmudgeonly.  So the fact that it will be 95 degrees with 75% humidity in Chicago all day on Saturday and Sunday shouldn’t keep you from going to Pitchfork.  You are young, beautiful, and well-hydrated, right?  Your feet don’t hurt after twenty minutes of standing in one place.  Or at the very least, you are still cool enough that you can pretend that your feet don’t hurt.  That means you should definitely go see EMA, Neko Case, tUnE-yArDs, and Superchunk.  And then send me the pictures.  Because I’m going to stay in my apartment, pet my dog, eat popsicles, and watch rock documentaries on bio.
