Support Jann Wenner’s Kid, Get A Free Subscription To “Blender”

sheisjamestaylorssister.pngYes, that’s right: If you buy a ticket to the May 2 New York City show by the Ellis Unit, which features Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner’s son, Gus, on guitar and vocals, you get a free subscription to Blender–a $9.97 value that brings your real price for the $20 ticket down to a mere $10.03 (plus service charges, which will probably mean that you’re out $20 anyway). I wonder if this means that Jann has no hard feelings about the Joe Levy decampment? Click the screenshot to enlarge.

The best part: That’s only the second-most-embarrassing thing about this particular bit of blurbage! “Remember, she is James Taylor’s sister”? Yes, I think most people will remember a bit of trivia they read six lines prior. The James Taylor demographic isn’t exactly made up of ADHD-addled teenagers.

    Ellis Unit? I would have thought they would have changed to the Gregor Samsas. No, singular: The Gregor Samsa.

    Well, sure, the James Taylor demographic aren’t teenagers, but they are Alzheimer’s-riddled seniors.

    @NickEddy: There already is a fantastic band called Gregor Samsa.
