Daisy O'Dell's Vinyl Lovers Lounge

Daisy O'Dell is hosting a "Vinyl Lovers Lounge" at Palihouse Holloway every Saturday in June. (Check out the pictures of the espresso bar and the lobby lounge.)

What it is exactly is an open call to all vinyl collectors and lovers to bring down their records and take turns on the decks playing their favorite hits, sharing these songs with like-minded vinyl junkies. All kinds of genres are welcome to the laid-back lounge which will have a bar and various activities while you partake in the communal listening party.

If this is you, please spread the word & we hope to see you there!

Send positive thoughts to/for Exene


After some months of not feeling 100% healthy, I recently had some medical tests run and the prognosis is that I am suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. Apparently, it has been affecting me for quite some time.

Although this is obviously unfortunate news, I am choosing to see the positive in it. I, and X as a band, have supported the Sweet Relief charity since the mid-1990's; the irony of this is not lost on any of us. Sweet Relief was started as an aide to uninsured artists by musician Victoria Williams when she herself was diagnosed with MS in 1992.

While this diagnosis will most certainly mean some changes for me, personally, it will not affect my commitments to the current X U.S. tour, nor will it affect my solo album that is slated for release this fall on Bloodshot Records.

My focus will certainly be on maintaining my health--many people remain strong and continue to live their lives as productively as they had before an MS diagnosis and I plan to be one of those people.
