The Whole World Went
Last night, after some falafel drama, we saw White Magic at the Mercury Lounge and it was sooooo good. In fact, every Drag City show I've ever seen has been sooooo good. Despite their latest release, which everybody slammed, I've been dying to see White Magic for quite some time now. They opened with a cover of a Karen Dalton song, "Katie Cruel," which I never would have picked up on had I not raided my mother's old folk vinyl collection last month. The frontwoman has this Grace Slick/ Nico act going on and the band as a whole beats most of the boring shit-storm that's coming out of the music industry right now.
