This is a public service announcement from Candy Hotpants. After seeing the bajillionth article linked on Largehearted Boy today in which The Hold Steady's Craig Finn had to talk about the whole Springsteen thing for like, what's probably the bajllionth time (seriously, we feel for him, that's gotta be really annoying), I was inspired to be of assistance. In order to combat the remnants of this effect in any other interviews Mr. Finn may need to conduct on the rest of the band's press junket, here's a handy guide for all you clueless and unoriginal print and/or electronic journalists out there. Perhaps this will spark a more interesting discussion.
POSSIBLE INFLUENCES ON THE HOLD STEADY WHICH ARE TOTALLY NOT BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN.
The Rich Girls Are Weeping is curated by super best friends Cindy Hotpoint & Pinkie Von Bloom. (And yes, they took the name from the Brian Eno song "Cindy Tells Me.") They formerly lived in Austin, Texas but are now based in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
Almost all of the content contained herein is dependent the vagaries of your hostess' weird tastes and whatever they're really into these days. As such, The Rich Girls Are Weeping does not focus as strongly on flavor-of-the-instant acts as some mp3 blogs; however, if you are in a band or with artist or label management and would like to send promotional materials to Cindy and Pinkie, drop an email to elegantfaker AT gmail DOT com. (NB: We receive a lot of email -- please don't fret if we don't get back with you right away! Urgent messages & mashnotes can be directed to cindy.hotpoint AT gmail DOT com)
