I actualy won tickets to this event but can’t go! First one to comment on this blog entry gets added to the list! For real.
Also, you can download Rocktapussy’s new ’09 Mixtape for free here. Featuring: He Say She Say, Silverghost, Flosstradamus feat. Caroline, CSS, Tegan & Sarah, Audio Bullys, Alphabeat, Seelenluft, Prairie Cartel, Kaiser Chiefs, Solid Gold
In a concept as classy as their name, adorable DJ tandem Rocktapussy (Jessica “A-Cup” Gonyea and Chess “Mother” Hubbard) are hosting SPANDEXXX! at Sonotheque later this month with He Say She Say and Silverghost. (Don’t bother trying to read the font on the flier).
So… um, if you’re dressed in 70% or more spandex you get in free. If you RSVP at UR Chicago, you get in for 5$. You can also win free tix by using brain power over at Venus Zine.
Considering what a Spandex ensemble will cost you at American Apparel (and all the friends you’ll lose in the process), I’ll take the 5$. Also please note; while accessories will make your outfit “pop”, be careful not to over-do it and drop below the 70% spandex requirement.

So, here’s the deal. I kept referring to my past Pitchfork commentary, but then I realized my MySpace blog is torturously slow (and some of the pics are missing). So, I’ve rescued it from that page, updated some of the pics, reformatted, and voila… a year-old piece that still makes fun of festival-goers effectively. (A topic that, apparently, is timeless.) Away we go!

In and Out
Well………. both Pitchfork and Lolla have occured and aside from all the music I wanted to see, a bonus for going is the people-watching. Trends come and go, but never are they more embraced (badly or not) than at music festivals.
I’m not dismissing and ESPECIALLY not condoning any of these, but here’s a little heads up about what the art undergrads and coffeeshop workers near you will be sporting and/or name-dropping over the next few months:
In: White/plastic-framed sun-glasses, and the glasses David Duchovney’s wore in Zoolander
Out: The Baumer
In: The Smooth Sailor
Out: Truckers Caps
In: Painters Caps
In: low-cc pedal-start motorbikes
Out: Soccer jerseys
In: old-school soccer / tennis / basketball shorts
Out: the urban cowboy
In: the urban lumberjack
Out: useless terms like “electroclash”
In: useless terms like “futureshock”
