It’s their third week of quarantine, so Karen is talking to Steak-umm on Twitter, and Wynter thinks Ellen sux. In lieu of music festival season launching this April, the two offer their own virtual W2X music festival for you this week. Sure there’s no Coachella and Stagecoach, but what really strikes at Karen’s heart is the postponement of PopCon 2020, the annual gathering of musicians, music writers, scholars, and fans at Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture, which she’d been organizing for the better part of a year. Nevertheless, she brings us a little taste of scheduled PopCon presenter Glenn McDonald of Spotify’s very international “In the Time of the Virus” playlist, with over 1700 new songs written since the start of the pandemic from all part of the globe. Meanwhile, Wynter lets us in on some of the themed playlists she’s been crafting for our sisters and fairy podmothers at the Jane Club, fit for everything from dining-in, to being “extremely chill.” Listen along with us, and turn the music up!
