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.

Ladies With Guitars Get No Action

Two fun blog entries on the internets today. The first answers the question, “do women with guitars get more ‘action’?” And we’re not talking about strings and necks here.

I have to somewhat disagree with the blogger. While I wouldn’t be surprised if men are intimidated by Neko Case and women of her talent and fame, I get approached by men far more often when I am carrying my guitar. But maybe that’s it. Maybe gentleman prefer to make advances on women who are carrying guitars, but not on ones who are playing them? Who knows.

The second blog (over on Huff Post) covers the ladies rock camp phenom.

Enjoy your Friday.
