When I was 11 years old,
I begged and begged my parents for a Talkboy for Christmas so I could
be like Kevin McCallister in Home Alone 2, who predominately used his device to
commit credit card fraud. Unsurprisingly, it wasn't too long after
winter break that my asshole 5th grade math teacher swiped it and locked
away in his desk, never to be seen again.
This summer, Wilco will curate their first-ever Solid Sound Festival, which, unlike a lot of these high-profile summer music festivals, will actually take place in Massachusetts. Granted, Mass MoCA (in North Adams) is still a couple of hours away from Boston, but that's a lot closer than, say, Manchester, Tennessee.
