Carrie Brownstein’s Torrid Affair With Phish

Big Jewcy has great taste

Our roommates’ Big Jewcy list continues apace with a look at Carrie Brownstein, late of Sleater-Kinney.

My favorite thing about Carrie Brownstein? She gave Phish an honest chance:

Phish occupies a unique space in music: It is extremely popular with a large group of people, yet simultaneously misunderstood, judged and dismissed by another—particularly self-identified music snobs, indie rockers and a whole slew of other folks. … Phish has never had a radio hit for non-fans to use as fodder or evidence. In fact—and this is the most shocking, and what makes the band a rare breed—many Phish-phobes have never even heard Phish’s music!

Listening, everyone??

For those who don’t recall, the Big Jewcy’s Big Party is this Thursday in New York.
