Enrique Cardenas: Is the legend of the guitar god dead? Are there any young guitarists that will make an impact in 2009?
Sasha Frere-Jones: The last three "guitar heroes" I saw were women: Marnie Stern, Kaki King, and Marissa Paternoster of the the Screaming Females. And the only old-fashioned guitar solos coming to mind are on Chris Brown and Braid Paisley albums.
Heartonastick: Paternoster's hard to see, impossible to take your eyes off.
Screaming Females are on tour with Throwing Muses. They play Music Hall of Williamsburg together tonight (3/12).
Lissy Trullie is everywhere lately. One of those places is opening for The Soundtrack of our Lives at Bowery Ballroom tonight (3/12) (not sold out).
