    Saying "yes" across generations: my meeting with Joan Baez

    A few weeks ago my friends Stacy Schwartz, Alexa Jones and I made an election poster, a replica of an old Joan Baez anti-war poster called "Girls Say Yes." We did it on a whim, mostly to be silly and to show our love for Obama. We put it on the inter...

    Thunder Cats - Kitten Forever channel their crabbiness into manic dancing

    Even with the bucket seats removed and the gear still in the venue, the van is as cramped as a crypt. Through its stock tweeters, Bessie Smith's voice lopes in a forlorn lilt, and with the jalousies cracked just enough to stir the air, Kitten Foreve...
