My local pool hall has Wilco and Billy Braggs' album Mermaid Ave. you know the one that they put music to a bunch of newlly dicovered Woody Guthrie lryics. I play it everytime I'm in there and the everybody there will look at me like I have 6 heads.
Thanks Tonia! I posted from home and I can't do links from here. Tom Batiuk, who draws Funky, lives near here and the pizza place he based Montoni's on is right downtown, so I think this calls for some research-based pizza exploration.
I love Patty Griffin's music and glad to see she made it in the press! Even if it is a comic! Thanks for sharing.
True..Patty Griffin is great and she does fit into "folk" since she's a singer/songwriter and uses an acoustic guitar, but I don't think it's a real shocker that she would be in a comic strip or on thousands of jukeboxes in reality. I mean, she was on tour with the Dixie Chicks a few years ago and she has videos in heavy rotation on CMT and she's on a major label.
She's a staple on college and alternative radio and even on some commercial radio.
Now, seeing Kate Campbell or Mary Gauthier on the jukebox or in a comic strip...THAT would be cool :)
