Courting Riot: Favorite Things of Last Night: Jenny Zigrino

[It’s hard to not be a jaded piece of shit these days. The world is crumbling from being tossed around like imminently-broken glass toys in the hands of the rich and powerful.

Sometimes you don’t want to wake up because dreams are the only relief from this world that’s getting closer, and closer to how the Gorillaz sound. But sometimes, you go to the Five Star Bar in Downtown LA as a part of the RIOT LA Comedy Festival, sit down and find yourself floating down a river of elation.
