Upcoming: Liz Phair at Sunrise Records, November 15
Having enlisted the Matrix to put a Avril Lavigne-style sheen on her disappointing new album, perhaps former indie rock raunch queen Liz Phair figured her best bet for a comeback is targeting the younger siblings and offspring of her former Gen-X fans. Phair's gig at Sunrise Records on Yonge this Saturday at 1 pm will give her the perfect opportunity to hook those Avril- and Hilary Duff-loving preteens - the kids so young that even Phair's 7 pm Saturday-evening all-ages show falls after their bedtimes.
No word on whether an explicit content advisory will be posted - choice lyrics from the new album include "Give me your hot, white cum" - to warn concerned parents at the in-store gig. Either way, watching the wicked vixen of Wicker Park signing the Sponge Bob lunch boxes of her excitable new audience should be a hoot.
