I made a glaring omission in my list of acts I wanted to see at MusicFest Northwest. Perhaps to my defense, I had not heard Purity Ring’s music prior to making that list. Because if I had, I would have ranked the Montreal-based glitch-pop duo in my Top 3 alongside NOLA Sissy Bounce Queen Diva Big Freedia and Detroit oral pleasure enthusiast Danny Brown.
This is dedicated to my roommate’s yellow lab, Baxter aka Baxter Blue (for his eternally sad facial expression) aka Darth Baxter (for his heavy panting). He’s almost 14. He sounds every bit of it too, I am sad to report. He can’t catch his breath and he can’t catch a break. Father Time is a bastard. I think Baxter would agree with me if he could read.
