Especially in a pandemic, Joan Baez and the Indigo Girls’ arresting performance of “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” matters.
OUT NOW: New essay by Josh Friedberg about music and autism in the pandemic highlighting the legendary Joan Baez’s rendition of a Dylan classic.
"I easily get confused by things that do not make sense that, in theory, should. That tendency is often reflected in my music habits, including bewilderment about bitter lyrics delivered sweetly. I am autistic — an unsung blessing in a world populated by neurotypical hubris."
Josh Friedberg is an author, music historian, and TEDx speaker whose writing has appeared at PopMatters, Good Men Project, and Country Queer.
