The cheese to my macaroni

Well, this'd be a better post if I'd actually, y'know, been able to see the show, but Kimya Dawson (she of the on-hiauts Moldy Peaches and monopolizer of the kickass Juno soundtrack) played a free show last night at the exceptional Adams Morgan record store, Crooked Beat.

As expected, there was substantial overflow, and as I am wont to do, I arrived late, but - evidenced by fellow Washingtonian, Jobless Girl in DC - Ms. Dawson kindly played a portion of the set in the chilly outside for all the kids who couldn't get in. (With the Moldy Peaches, it's all class - especially when, in some parallel universe trickery, they wind up on The View.)

And at least I was able to walk away with some promotional swag - namely, Juno guitar picks. Honest to blog.

It would have been so cool to see her! We need to start getting to places early...

Sounds like a plan.
