Taking sides: David Malitz argues with himself
Because that's what happens when you are snowed in. So here are some of this week's big issues, condensed to about two sentences.
Blog Rock Lacks a Political Edge
Um, good? Do we really need to hear people from upper-middle-class backgrounds taking it to the man? Not to say they shouldn't if they want to take it to the man, but can we really hold it against them if they don't?
John Mayer Is a Racist
He's probably not really a racist. But he's definitely an idiot and a very unfunny one at that. It would probably best to just ignore him and his music for a long while and if you have a sketch comedy show, stop inviting him on, okay? Also he's some oversexed misogynist writing fluffy love songs. It's like the bizarro effect of blog bands trying to be political activists.
Polling at Clubs
Good debate happening over at the City Paper blog about the practice of local clubs asking concertgoers which band they are there to see. Bottom line: it's a bummer, kind of insulting to all involved but does have a bottom line practicality to it. Numbers don't lie, but there's a reason baseball teams employ people who crunch statistics and scouts who actually watch the games, y'know?
Bonnaroo vs. Coachella
What? Not even worth debating. Coachella is the easy winner this year. Three of the top five billed bands at Bonnaroo are Dave Matthews Band, Kings of Leon and Tenacious D. Come on.
