So I got to see Empire of the Sun for the first time last night. I can't even begin to describe how crazy it was. There were golden headdresses, Aladdin pants, lasers and dancers dressed as 1960s movie spacemen. Hit up my Twitter for pics and vids of the show.
Here's their latest jam, "Alive".
Not to mention, this is one of my favorite indie dance jams of all time:
Their new record, Trouble Will Find Me, is out today.
This past weekend, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen said goodbye to SNL. I'm sure Old School Edgeheads everywhere were going nuts as Ian Rubbish (Armisen) was joined on stage by Carrie Brownstein, Steve Jones, J Mascis, Kim Gordon, Aimee Mann, and Michael Penn.
Also, this is easily the best picture ever.
Apparently it's cover week on my blog...have I told you how much I love these dudes?
Well this is kinda cool.
This man is a hero, and my friends The Gregory Brothers have imortalized him in song.
The fourth annual Homegrown Fest is happening in beautiful Downtown Dallas, America this Saturday. Pretty stacked lineup of Texas talent: Divine Fits, Polyphonic Spree, ZHORA, Burning Hotels, Larry g(EE), Datahowler and tons more. Tickets are cheap too.
Food trucks will be in full force. And so will my festival pants.
The entire world seems to be enamored with the new Daft Punk jam, "Get Lucky." And there's a good reason for that: it rules. Last Sunday on The Adventure Club I debuted a cover by this British band (who are awesome) Daughter. And after a bit of searching, there are already a few great covers of this song. I can't remember the last time a song resonated with so many people in such a short amount of time.
And here's another one by George Barnett that's even funkier, if you can believe it.
