“Make America Girly Again”

We should all be a little more girly, as we head over to the 9:30 Club on October 3rd to join Liz Phair on her Amps On the Lawn Tour.

Liz just released a 25th anniversary box set called Girly-Sound to Guyville, that commemorates her stellar debut indie rock album, Exile in Guyville. Before she released that album in 1993, she also recorded homemade cassette tapes under the moniker Girly-Sound. So it’s a prime time to pick up a copy and re-immerse yourself in her early work.

I last saw Liz perform live in 2005, and had a chance to catch her in Seattle in 2003, for her self-titled fourth album. Her classics in the 1990’s (including her second album Whip-Smart) are still swirling in my head. ‘When they do the double dutch, that’s them dancing.’ Repeat.

Tickets are sold out, but hop on the resale sites, since she doesn’t tour often!

Doors open at the 9:30 Club at 7pm. Speedy Ortiz is the opener.
