    U.S. Girls Van Tour
    Last week, U.S. Girls hosted the ‘In A Poem Unlimited’ van tour, stopping at infamous sites in New York City that embody themes of the new album. From the apartment where Norman Mailer stabbed his wife ('Velvet 4 Sale') to the subway grate where Marilyn Monroe was famously photographed ('Incidental Boogie') and the War Resisters League, home to the oldest secular pacifist group in the country ('Mad As Hell') – the tour gave riders a NYC translation of the universal themes that inspire U.S. Girls' music.‘In A Poem Unlimited’ is out now: http://smarturl.it/InAPoemUnlimited

They Podcast Like a Wrecking Ball

TFT Podcast is a staple of my podcast diet. The show sets out to explore teen-driven pop culture with a level of scrutiny that is uncommon to the subject. Ryan and Matt can't, and hopefully won't, stop podcasting, because they run the podcast,the podcast don't run they.

heady blend

What more could you ask for at the price? 20 % of the content about the shows and 70% vaguely relevant social commentary and 10% random nonsnense and laugher. My kind of show.

Thanks, Catherine
