Zach G. & Tim H. in their underwear, May 21, 2008
Les Savy Fav & Zach Galifianaki

I know the trivia contest was supposed to be fun and all, but after rocking a perfect score after 3 rounds, I was so disappointed in the last round. Love the idea, but they could have at least made it indie-rock related.

Great performance by Mr. Z and the band, although they sure took their sweet time getting on stage. [Anonymous]

Zach: "My stylist asked me what kind of look I was going for tonight and I said, The Homeless Professor. Marijuana Santa Claus. How about Wolf Blitzer at Burning Man?"

The last round of the indie rock trivia contest was entitled Kanye or Nay which is the contest's creator's jab (I'm assuming) at Zach Galifianakis who's starred in a Kanye music video.
Zach would read a quote and people would write down if it was a lyric from one of Kanye's songs or Nay. Bonus points for the name of the song.

The show could have easily been cut in half. I left after Les Savy Fav finished their set and didn't bother checking out who the winner was.

Good show, but the trivia seemed a little forced. Appreciated Sid playing with a broken finger.

"Is the show 'The Amazing Race' about white people?"

The last round was retarded and a total waste. I'm never attending a New York magazine event again.

Last night was a big disappointment. The trivia took way too long and the gap between it ending and LSF going on was ridiculous. Seriously did I need to be there for a half hour and hear Kris Kross, Salt n Peppa, Skee Lo, Bell Biv Devoe, amongst others.... really?

The Kanye or Nay round was funny. You guys are just pissed you didn't know the answers as well as you knew your My Bloody Valentine album covers.

the last round sucked.

Hey Shred,

It was an indie rock trivia contest - I don't see any Kanye West in that.

Go back to Long Island or Connecticut.

Dear all idiot brooklyners who wear middle eastern scarves. PLEASE KILL YOURSELVES.

Yeah! And stop wearing Levis, too! You are not part of the San Francisco Gold Rush of 1849!

Also, stop wearing shoes - who do you motherfuckers with shoes think you are?

Fucking Assholes.

And enough with the mullets. They even embarrass real rednecks.

Oh. Phew. When I saw "Tim H." in the photo caption I thought I missed Tim Heidecker from Tim and Eric making a guest appearance.

Somebody tell me LSF are playing a pool party!

Posted by Tito | May 22, 2008 11:06 AM

i know some femi-mulletted arafat-scarved ladies who would totally start wearing khakis and oxford shirts if zooey d. and chloe s. and feist started sporting them. (not that they would admit to this.)

Posted by Joe | May 22, 2008 11:36 AM

is the singer from LSF actually a musician or just an entertainer?

is he actually interested in making music or just running around naked all the time?

Posted by Anonymous | May 22, 2008 11:58 AM

That's some crazy indie-beard action.

Posted by NewmRadio | May 22, 2008 1:06 PM

i like how the first webpage they displayed is bv's

Posted by GOPster | May 22, 2008 1:18 PM

Everyone bitching is just pissed they didn't win.

Who cares, it was still a good time.

Posted by rachel | May 22, 2008 1:39 PM

what the hell are all of you guys talking about?? That show was awesome! Zach G was hilarious, there was no body there and LSF is always great. Why is everyone so hateful, spiteful, and cynical on this blog?

Posted by Lindsay | May 22, 2008 4:45 PM

Zach was the shit as usual, but LSF really blew. It might be time for these guys to do something new - talk about riding on fumes. Shit is stale, yo.

My comment was good enough for BV post, but my other posts I guess are not good enough (I was banned from my work computer).

Posted by Anonymous | May 22, 2008 10:28 PM

Zach was hilarious as usual and it was comedy in itself just seeing how serious all the indie nerds in the crowd were taking the trivia contest. I don't know what people are complaining about...

Thank you for this post!.
