Live Tonight: The Twilight Sad, The Cold War

The Twilight Sad: nice windbreaker, asshat. Tonight at the Livingroom is the premier Providence show of Glasgow’s pale white mope-tastic Twilight Sad. Incredibly popular in their native U.K. and over here among the Britpop worshipping enclaves of New York and Boston, it will be interesting to see if Providence’s decidedly more inert anglophiles will come …

Evo Morales on the Daily Show

  Matt has the clip of Bolivian prez Evo Morales from Tuesday’s Daily Show. It’s worth checking out. It’s great evidence that politicians don’t need to be showboating, full-of-shit doublespeakers to get things done — and that there’s at least a ray of hope in this world. He’s nationalized Bolivia’s resources, cut his own salary …
