I guess this means Vivian Girls aren't the secret guest at the BV showcase.

I know it's off topic but is it just me or does the chick from the Ting Tings look like a blow up doll?

Posted by Mikey Bravo | October 11, 2008 10:03 AM

ting ting's are so corny

Not the real DRI, WTF?

Did these guys grow up in a cave? Have all possible band names been taken? Why would use the same band name as a relatively well know band that still plays?

I bet their second choice for band names was TSOL.

what's going on Saturday?

Posted by Brooklyn Omnivore | October 11, 2008 2:29 PM

seriously, WHY WOULD A NEW BAND CALL THEMSELVES DRI??? I hope they get sued.

Is Wild Light a real band or were they invented by a major label like MGMT?

Posted by Anonymous | October 11, 2008 5:07 PM

thanks very nice

"Dri" is Adrianne Verhoeven's (the Anniversary, Fourth of July) nickname. aDRIanne=Dri. "D.R.I." is the so-good-it-hurts 80's punk band. "D.R.I." is an acronym for "Dirty Rotten Imbeciles" - when you see those letters written any other way, it should be a clue that it's maybe not the so-amazing-i-can't-believe-it 80's punk band.

I can attest Wild Light is real. I've known them for years. In fact, I saw their first show.
