TV Picks: We love, LOVE AXS TV and watched all of Coachella without having to use a public restroom or pay $5 for a bottle of water. It was amazing and reconfirmed my absolute boredom with Interpol. Seriously, can someone please just goose the lead singer? And Alabama Shakes! Such a great band, I really fell in love with them. It should be mandatory for state outline tattoos to be visible on arms like lead singer Brittany Howard does. The kids today have no idea where Missouri is.
But I digress, so here are AXS TV’s programming highlights for the week of May 4 to 10.
We begin with the ageless survivor Shania Twain. This woman has a portrait aging somewhere all Haggard like (not in the Merle way), as she defies physics and sails through time looking like a kid.
