  1. Seriously, I see Wanda Jackson in Christina from Pussy Galore/Boss Hog infamy, as well as most of the Riot Grrls from the nineties – she’s a brash woman in a man’s world (though that’s of course changing) and she is awesome for her bravery and commitment to be who she wants. amen.

  2. The tix are yours, Jason!

    We’re surprised more people didn’t go for this one. Wanda’s amazing! Hope to see you all at the show.
