Silver Jews’ Berman disses C’ville
David Berman, lead singer for the band The Silver Jews (and former bandmate of some members of Pavement) disses his college town in an interview with a University of Georgia online student-run magazine. “Charlottesville sucks and Athens is cool,” declares Berman, who is playing the 40-Watt Club in Athens tonight. Unfortunately, Berman doesn't explain the reason for his comment. Hook music editor Vijith Assar interviewed the caustic and philosophical Berman as a warm up for The Silver Jews' March 16th gig at the Satellite Ballroom”Š at which point Berman might have some explaining to do!
Correction: The above entry had errors about Berman's townie/band affliations which have now been corrected.
