Holden despaired earlier today of the artists who have chosen to appear at the inaugural. None of them are personal favorites of mine, so I’m not too upset, but I do think in consideration of Holden’s point that no one of any integrity should be anywhere near this thing, we could put our brain cells together and come up with an alternate lineup.
You know, I get where some of these artists are coming from. The president asks you to play at his party, if you don’t know anything about said president, that sounds pretty damn cool. However, once they found out it was THAT president, they should have said, “You know, I’m afraid I can’t make it. However, you should call my friend X, he’s free that weekend.”
Let’s give the artists some suggestions to put in the X spot. Who’d be a good fit for that party?
