If you're one of the proud few attendees who will already be at the CMJ Music Marathon Wednesday afternoon, I recommend you attend this panel.
The Hoarse Whisperer: Decoding The Ying-Yang Twins
Have "Wait (The Whisper Song)" and "Pull My Hair" reached new depths of depravity and misogyny on the radio dial? Is it a secretly feminist ode to shared power-play? Or does any uproar just reveal the listener's failure to have a sense of humor? Our panel of critics discusses. Wed. Sept. 14th, 1:30-2:45pm, Helen Huntington Hull Room at Lincoln Center.
Moderator: Christopher Weingarten
Panel: Julianne Shepherd, Jon Caramanica, Lynne D. Johnson, Jason King, Anthony Miccio
I'll be in NY all week. My first CMJ. Should be a hoot!
