If you’re not from Austin, ya’ll may not know that this weekend is FunFunFun Fest, one of the many music fests in town that make us seem cool and relevant to the rest of the world and attracts a shit-ton of out-of-towners from places like Cali, who “don’t understand” Texas and from whom the Republicans in this town derive twisted pleasure from lampooning annually. (Amusing for all involved, I expect.)
I was browsing the website for this year’s fest, and I came across the following bio of South Caronlina artist Chaz Bundick (a.k.a. Toro y Moi):
I’m not sure who writes these things, but that parenthesis–African American–closed parenthesis is hella distracting, as is the entire mentioning of his parents cultural backgrounds and boring back story about how they ended up in South Carolina. Not sure why that’s in there at all. Does being Blasian inform his music somehow? Or does he just have a lot of black/AZN pryde and feel the need to repr’sent?
Also, is anyone offended that the African American-ness of his dad is relegated to a parenthetical passing mention? (Personally, I was much more offended by the poor construction of the sentence and ineffective use of parentheses).
