White Lung

Nardwuar struck again, interviewing his Vancouver neighbors White Lung and pulling out all his usual tricks. He presents Mish Way with a record from a band her friend used to be in, and Hether Fortune with a band that WL drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou used to be in. He quotes an old interview with guitarist Kenny Williams saying "I really wish I was more popular, I just try so fucking hard but people just ignore me, why don't they understand?" (Kenny says he was joking), asks Hether what's the most amount of money she's had thrown at her after a show, asks Mish what it's like to shit in a bag, and other awkward/funny questions. Watch the whole video for yourself, below.

White Lung don't have a tour announced at the moment, but it was announced today that they'll return to NYC for Governors Ball (June 5-7), where they'll be the heaviest band by far.

Nardwuar also just posted new interviews with Andy Milonakis and Zedd. Watch all three below...

Babs at Barclays, 10/11/2012 (via @cpcayaba)

Barbara Streisand played her first of two, and first-ever Brooklyn show at the Barclays Center last night. Those in attendance missed the live Vice President debate, but still got a taste of politics at the show:

"I love Big Bird and I hope no one tells Romney how to get to Sesame Street ... or to Pennsylvania Avenue," cracked Streisand, according to the Huffington Post.

Streisand also said of Romney: "He's a good actor. [He's] a chameleon. It's great."

Babs plays the new venue, that only Jay-Z played before her, again Saturday night.

Meanwhile: "Barclays Center VIP Lounge Issued Health Violation For Lack Of Toilet Paper."

And while on the same theme: Friday Night Lights television series creator Peter Berg wants Mitt Romney to stop using its "Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can't Lose" slogan. But FNL author Buzz Bissinger takes the other side.

"Throughout 2007, Lady Gaga collaborated with performance artist Lady Starlight, who helped her create her onstage fashions. The pair began playing gigs at downtown club venues like the Mercury Lounge, The Bitter End, and the Rockwood Music Hall, with their live performance art piece known as "Lady Gaga and the Starlight Revue". Billed as "The Ultimate Pop Burlesque Rockshow", their act was a low-fi tribute to 1970s variety acts. In August 2007, Gaga and Starlight were invited to play at the American music festival Lollapalooza. The show was critically acclaimed, and their performance received highly positive reviews. Having initially focused on avant-garde, and electronic dance music, Gaga found her musical niche when she began to incorporate pop melodies and the vintage glam rock of David Bowie and Queen into the mix."
