Thayer Sarrano - Jessica Hopper (MTV News)
JESSICA HOPPER
MTV News
(Editorial Director of Music)

January 13, 2018 (Saturday) - As Leonard Feather and Nat Hentoff were to jazz journalism of the 1950s and 1960s, so is Jessica Hopper to music journalism (rock and genres otherwise) of the 1990s and early 21st century. Jessica Hopper currently serves as the editorial director of music at MTV News. She has done duty as the editor-in-chief of the Pitchfork Review. She has penned pages for the Chicago Tribune, The Village Voice, SPIN, and GQ, to scratch but the surface of her written compendium. Hopper is the author of two books: The Girls' Guide to Rocking, and The First Collection of Criticism by a Living Female Rock Critic. The latter was featured in the New York Times Review of Books. She has been interviewed by Newsweek and Time. More vaunted than all this, (and all that), in our eyes, is Hopper's unmitigated voice supporting and defending the place of women in the music industry. By turns subtle and razor-sharp, Hopper never hesitates to brand as "foul play" the all-too-typical practices and behaviors of male chauvinism, as found enshrined and protected in the tower. For all of these reasons, and then some, we are delighted to embed this screenshot for posterity, commemorating one fine day back in September 2017, when Jessica Hopper took a moment on her Twitter Feed to remark upon the merits of the album Shaky by Thayer Sarrano. Many, many thanks, sent by way of Athens, GA, due north, to a place called Chi-Town.

Thayer Sarrano - Adam Faucett - Ben McLeod The High Watt (Nashville, TN)

July 27, 2018 (Friday) - In a remote and distant place called Nashville, Tennessee, The High Watt hosts Thayer Sarrano and her fuzz-driven electric ensemble. Sarrano plays in support of Adam Faucett, an Arkansas-based singer-songwriter, by way of Little Rock. Faucett bears tidings of a new album for the world -- It Took the Shape of a Bird -- out since late June on vinyl, yet only being rolled out slowly on digital platforms everywhere. (Ye who wave the black flag of digital piracy will just have to wait.) It is Faucett's fifth album. Also playing this evening will be Ben McLeod. McLeod is the guitarist of All Them Witches, who themselves have a new album mixed and in the works, slated for release in the not-so-remote future. Watch McLeod give a run-down of his rig -- guitars, amps, pedals, the whole kit -- on Premier Guitar. And enjoy.
