Week in Review: Obsession Edition
In the week that we discovered New York has a local music scene by way of Sarah Palin's new favorite band Department of Eagles, to say nothing of the local charm of a new Japanther cover of an old Oregon folk song, we also found time to slag said scene: CMJ, you are no POP Montreal.
Plus, Camille got a job as a stocking clerk at Banksy's new pop-up store, Bones liked Chris Johanson's show at Deitch Projects, and Richard Gehr extracts an amazing quote from comic-book artist Lynda Barry: "I think the only art left for us is slowly peeling a label off a beer bottle while somebody tells you about a dream they had." A/K/A your swiftly oncoming weekend!
