  1. You guys are doing yeoman’s work in promoting the shit out of her, but it must be frustrating when the predominant response has been the sound of crickets.

    She’s kinda like Colin Quinn in more ways than one: must have friends in high places because no one else can figure out the appeal. How does someone open for Wilco and sound so utterly boring and mor?

  2. B.M.,

    if a full page feature in Spin, NPR Song Of The Day, WNYC session in a few weeks and a packed house at the Mercury last week = the sound of crickets, we heart crickets.

    Obviously we disagree about the “boring and mor” thing, but the opening for Wilco instance is simple enough —- they asked her. And she’s played w. Mr. Tweedy before (perhaps we bought him off, too, I don’t recall).

    re : Colin Quinn. Save for the fact you lack the courage of your convictions to sign your name, that’s pretty funny. If it had been an artist I disliked, I’d have said Robert Wuhl.
