Re: “From Taylor Swift’s three-night stand to Pretty Lights’ diamond landing, fall brings a musical bounty

W T F. Are you guys simply pandering to the frat-boy coor's light crowd or do you still have your trucker hats on? Your sardonic writing styles aren't enough to compensate for the fact that you're debasing the role of taste-maker down to the least common denominator. How can there be no love for the unknown indie bands or upcoming no-names. Do you guys work for Spin?

Re: “Robyn Hitchcock at Mercy Lounge, Katey Red at The Stone Fox

Also, Pale Blue Eyes and Visions of Johanna are pretty skeletal on the original records, so perhaps that isn't an apt descriptor. Hitchcock played a busker's set, which was a let-down, considering how immense his own oeuvre is and how long he's spent crafting a worldview that pits the individual (or EYE if you want to use Hitchcock's own terminology) against the political and mundane forces that make us yearn for a way out of our limited subjective and selfish experiences; i.e. love. Any mother fucker in Nashville with an acoustic guitar knows how to play a Bob Dylan song. And if the Velvet Underground aren't as widely covered, any mother fucker with a computer and an acoustic guitar can learn the whole discography in an afternoon.

Re: “Robyn Hitchcock at Mercy Lounge, Katey Red at The Stone Fox

Actually, most of the Hitchcock penned songs in the second set came from Eye and not Queen Elvis. Learn your craft you hooligans.
