DOWNLOAD: CSS - Meeting Paris Hilton (MP3)

Happened 1 day ago.....

Paris Hilton & CSS @ Coachella

"...Post show we could all just relax–had an amazing time at the CSS show where both Peaches and Paris Hilton were shimmying around. They were hilarious in the best way (CSS that is)......After that we went to see Air who it seems never showed up. Well they were a half hour late by the time we threw our hands up to the air (yuk yuk) and left. Earlier in the evening a funny thing happened to the ladies and man of CSS. Out of nowhere with an authoritative strut Courtney Love appeared in the artist area and barged into the CSS trailer. At that point I assume she’s a fan and I continue on my merry way to get some water and meet up with the band. Little did I know she was just was looking for shelter and picked the closest trailer. Apparently she came in, said 'I need this trailer' and asked 'Who are you?' CSS proceeded to explain. She looked bewildered and left soon after." [Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear for Rolling Stone]
Tickets are still on sale for CSS' show at Irving Plaza (Fillmore) on June 1st. More photos below....

Paris Hilton & CSS @ Coachella

6:25 p.m.: Brazil is so often celebrated for its musical sophistication that it’s sometimes difficult to imagine it has amateurish punk bands too. CSS is proof. The sextet carves out simple hooks from barebones metal and disco, and sprinkles them with pop-culture references that sound passably charming in broken English. [Chicago Tribune]

'Pretend We're Dead' as performed by CSS was a cool moment. Prior to starting the song the lead singer said 'This is a Daft Punk cover,' only to launch into the L7 song. I love Brazilians. [A day in the life of]

What's with the strange eye makeup? Is Lovefoxxx trying to be Bjork?

Posted by Anon | April 30, 2007 12:56 PM

I love her.

Posted by LPC | April 30, 2007 12:57 PM

these people are famous for doing nothing - PH is famous largely for being rich. Why celebrate that? It's not even interesting.

The lead singer looks like a sausage.

I'm not sure which is the more serious sign that indie rock is dead -- that Paris Hilton went to Coachella, or that Brooklyn Vegan spent so much space covering it.

Posted by Steve | April 30, 2007 1:15 PM

I think BV's covering it more for CSS, considering they have a song dedicated to Ms. Hilton

"Who invited your annoying Mom?" = Peaches

Posted by David McCaffredy | April 30, 2007 2:15 PM

Why would any band dedicate a song to Paris Hilton? No wonder she's at Coachella.

Posted by Blow | April 30, 2007 2:16 PM

Ugh! I have lost total respect for this band.

Posted by Anon | April 30, 2007 2:23 PM

So tired of reading about people's appearances on this page. Geez. If you want pop stars with fussed-over physiques, Shakira is waiting for you at your local Wal-Mart.

Posted by not again | April 30, 2007 2:25 PM

There are tickets left for the Irving Plaza show? Maybe Paris Hilton will be there!

Posted by LV | April 30, 2007 2:26 PM

wow, the haters on monday in full force...

i dont care what people say paris is fucking hot and im sure a great time.

Posted by roedood | April 30, 2007 2:36 PM

Yes, and now they can stay for free in all the Hiltons all over the world. Oh the irony.

Insipid band meet insipid celebrity

Riveting!

Paris!! I wanna have your babies!

Posted by aboy | April 30, 2007 3:01 PM

How about insipid comments by insipid people.

For those of you who lost respect or whatever the fuck, why not bother listening to the song first. It's hardly flattering.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2007 3:28 PM

punk is now "barebones metal and disco" and played by idiot hipsters.

ok...

Posted by None | April 30, 2007 3:47 PM

seats just released for modest mouse tonight on ticketmaster

Posted by captn stabbin | April 30, 2007 3:55 PM

I have listened to the song and the rest of the album. They're still an insipid band with moronic lyrics. Are you their band manager or you probably work for their label. Way to stick up for them!

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2007 4:13 PM

Is this nu punk?

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2007 4:16 PM

I don't think this band is that bad. Not my favorite, but I can think of shittier bands. I just dislike people describing them as a punk band. Maybe I'm old school or too old but when did disco get catergorized as punk? Other than wearing their shirt on stage to gain hipster points, do they really know who the Subhumans are?

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2007 4:28 PM

you guys sure like labelling. Don't any of you remember what Ray of Today said,

"I used to think that labels were just symbols of pride, but over time i've seen they only serve to divide."

c'mon everyone, hold hands.

Posted by kde | April 30, 2007 4:43 PM

Dance music with a punk approach is (was?) called post-punk, and it's been around since the late 70's. See Gang of Four, Liliput, Maximum Joy.

But I don't think CSS falls in this category.

I think the Chicago Tribune is the only one that called CSS punk, at least on this page. And I think they meant "major label farm team."

"I have listened to the song and the rest of the album. They're still an insipid band with moronic lyrics. Are you their band manager or you probably work for their label. Way to stick up for them!"

That's sad. Not liking a band is one thing, but thinking that no one can like them just because you the mighty don't is low. You think a band would make a name for itself if the only people who are into them were the employees of their label? It's probably unimaginable to someone like you, but some of us like to praise what we enjoy and shut the fuck up about the ones we're not into or don't get.

BWAHAHAHA. Courtney Love gains cool points.

Posted by Anonymous | April 30, 2007 5:12 PM

What I enjoy is Courtney Love contemplating the existence of identity. Imagine the horror of Courtney Love bursting onto your room and asking, "Who are you?"

There are so many answers. Most of them are throw-away, but I think most of us would shy away from the truth. Who are we really? Who are we kidding? This life? Perhaps we should no longer mock Courtney Love for being an abominable, archaic nuisance. Instead we should laud her for the oracle that she is.

i love that paris is just kinda hovering and nobody is paying her much attention. she looks like an over eager fangirl.

ecw is so wise

Posted by panda | April 30, 2007 9:44 PM

I thought the genre was dance-punk? Like !!! and the Rapture??? Because when I personally listen to them they sound more like the bands I mentioned rather than Gang of Four or Joy Division. But hell what do I know? I don't get paid to label or categorize what kind music bands play. I do think there are a ton of crappier bands. They're probably fun live.

Am I the only one who heard CSS sing the Macarena for a few seconds towards the end of the set?

Posted by Juan | May 1, 2007 11:06 PM

award for who gives a crap - all you lose-ahs!

CSS won't exist or be given a shit about in 5 months - Paris Hilton may persist but only for money and exposure. Lady is boring as a fucking nail on the wall.
