In the last week, I’ve read two interesting interviews involving Alicia Jo Rabins, of the band Girls in Trouble. The most recent one, at Largehearted Boy, has Rabins in discussion with author Diana Spechler. Rabins and Spechler both discussing their Jewish backgrounds seems to be a nice compliment to the Magnet conversation between Rabins and lapsed Christian David Bazan conversation on faith and art.
