X Marks the Spot 

Wednesday, Oct 28 2009
Someone, please make a movie based on Exene Cervenka’s life. The protagonist (played by whoever the next pre-diet Christina Ricci is) flees Florida, invents punk rock, counts among her conquests Viggo Mortensen and John Doe, becomes a fashion icon, invents alt-country, invents spoken-word poetry, releases a solo dark-folk record, develops multiple sclerosis, and lives happily ever after. All of the above is exaggerated but factual; tonight, she sings for you, just for you, from that dark-folk record, Somewhere Gone. Dress cool, act smart, and maybe you can legitimately pretend to be an extra in this epic tale of a great American.
