you can run, and have your fun
Cheers to the Walkmen for their stunning set last night at the Bait Shop on Fox's The OC.

My favorite parts:

Whatever the criminal grandfather/father/creepy guy said right before the 2nd Walkmen song. It was something about someone becoming a lawyer but he has a voice that sounds like it should be introducing a song from a rap album, like "you'd better be down with the family, Shiney, or you know we'll come after you...."

There was also something great about the canned, non-Walkmen music that, inside the club, overpowered the band when the loser kissed his ex. He was thinking that pushing a mop for a week for Walkmen tickets would win her back, but his dreams died and cruel reality set in.

Q: So, do you like this band?
A: I like Journey.....

and some other Walkmen odds and ends:

The Christmas Party is their new single. The spoken interludes ensure that it will soon become a Xmas classic.

And they're also going to do a cover of "There Goes My Baby" for a video game about zombies from the retrofuturistic late 50's. via Max.
