Lena Dunham is Whining About Jambands Now

by Sam D'Arcangelo on March 11, 2014

If you've ever taken some time out of your life to watch HBO's Girls then you've probably noticed that the characters on Lena Dunham's hit series do a good bit of whining. Whether its their ex-boyfriends, potential boyfriends, maybe-kind-of-boyfriends, jobs, roommates, parents or, uh, boyfriends, the girls of Girls always find something to complain about. Now, it looks like Dunham has (briefly) aimed her crosshairs at our beloved jambands. The writer/director/actress tweeted about her distaste for an unnamed improvisational group after leaving Austin's SXSW yesterday:

She later added:

For all we know that's a perfectly fair criticism of the band at hand, though some of us happen to enjoy the various configurations of "fluuurb" that make up so many of the crunchiest jams. Either way, it might be a good thing that jambands have attained a level of cultural significance that makes them worthy of a put down by one of our era's barest social critics.
