How Was the Food in Jail, Jonathan?

In the new LA Weekly, Jonathan Gold makes a rare non-restaurant-related appearance with this write-up of the band Mars Volta. He makes it to the second-to-last paragraph without mentioning food at all until he calls the band’s new album “as indigestible as last year’s fruitcake.”

Elsewhere in the piece, Gold reveals that he was once incarcerated for a weekend for scalping tickets to an Emerson, Lake and Palmer show. Which I guess is slightly less embarrassing than admitting that you actually once attended an Emerson, Lake and Palmer show.
