Music to Your Ears
Eva Blaylock does the shuffle
Pan!c and Suicide Lanes bassist Eva Blaylock put her iTunes on shuffle and meditated on the resulting random tracks in this week’s Song Roulette. Blaylock performs in new Elvis tribute trio Jumpsuit, along with Nate Daly and Jim Phillips, on Friday night.
I saw Suicide Lanes perform at Burt’s a couple years ago and had to compliment Blaylock on the performance. When I got up close, I realized I also needed to praise her fully fashioned stockings. But what I took for rad hosiery is actually a tattoo. She says the idea for the tattoo came from her grandmother’s recollections of painting on her seams to stay fashionable during wartime rationing of nylons.
