Exene, Me, and Special Guest!

The Library Foundation of Los Angeles’s winter schedule is now available online, so I can let you know the super news: I will be presenting alongside one of my all-time heroes, Exene Cervenka, at a special Queens of Noise night that kicks off the winter series. Plus, there will be another very special guest, TBA. X are one of my favorite bands; it was because of Exene that I got my first tattoo; her collection of poems Adulterers Anonymous (with Lydia Lunch) was my bible in college. I’m beyond stoked to be part of the prestigious ALOUD series, and to be with Exene is just the icing on the cake.

What’s more, the second night of the series is Richard Rodriguez presented by my esteemed colleague Ruben Martinez. Two scores for LMU. And later that month, Angelique Kidjo. It’s a great honor to be on this schedule.

Electric Lady Land

Because I don’t have cable, I’m just now watching Black Girls Rock on BET. Can we talk about how much I love Janelle Monae?

The Gospel According to Church

I disagree with Charlotte Church’s solution (censorship) in this wonderful speech, but she describes the problem of sexual objectification in the music industry brilliantly, from an insider’s perspective.
