The same white people who wanted an open crucifixion of Michael Vick for dog abuse will give you 1001 reasons as to why an officer killing an unarmed and surrendered black kid deserves to roam free, and in fact are shelling out their entire bank account to make sure it happens.
"Good Morning, Crap Ton"
yes, I’m sure Kurt Vile, Titus Andronicus, Deafheaven, Clams Casino, Everyone from Odd Future, Girls, FKA Twigs, Japandroids, M83, James Murphy, Dan Bejar, Alice Glass, Weeknd, Haim, Dirty Projectors, Merrill Garbus, and Deerhunter are all going to be orthopedic surgeons, senior account managers, state congressional representatives and high school principals by the time they’re 40.

Look, I know there are more important things to worry about in the world, but if you’re going to put out a representative chronological journey through the history of Genesis — including the relevant solo projects! — and you a. don’t include “Squonk” and b. don’t put “Behind the Lines” back to back with “Behind the Lines,” then, I’m sorry.

Anyway, we’re going to see X tonight. Show starts at 8 and even though it’s one of those play the classic album all the way through deals (Wild Gift) we have it on good authority that they come back after “the shortest intermission in the history of music” and play the rest of the hits. We’ll be sitting in our very specific City Winery bar stools that we paid $50 for and hopefully be tucked back into bed by 10. It’s punk rock for old people!
