Screaming Females
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).

Speaking of Dischord, Medications are on tour with Edie Sedgwick They play Cake Shop in NYC tonight (3/12).

LA comedian Morgan Murphy apparently lives in NYC now. That is great news for NYC comedy. Catch her tonight (3/12) at 92Y Tribeca. Check her out in the video below...

Morgan Murphy = Edie Brickell? She's cute but not really funny.

Lissy Trullie *is* everywhere lately! I wonder if it's the result of a) hard work, b) talent or c) a svengali-esque team of handlers and promoters who know a bankable face when they see one?

A cautionary tale:
