Papa Roach flowers

“Tonight is a very special night,” Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak told the crowd at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night. “Tonight is the night I got flowers from Papa Roach.”

As you may have seen, earlier this week Wasner participated in The AV Club‘s ongoing ‘Hatesong’ feature where they get musicians and other famous types to talk at length about a song they can’t stand. Jenn chose Papa Roach’s 2005 hit, “Scars,” and was actually kind of sweet about it in the piece:

So, you know, it’s cool to not like things, but I guess now that I’m sitting here staring at this guy’s lyrics, because it’s so heartfelt and like you said, it was a life-saving song, for some reason I feel like I’m having a hard time picking it apart the way that I do when I’m just laughing at it when I hear it.

As happens in this internet age, things get around quickly and the article found it’s way to Papa Roach’s Jacoby Shaddix who had a good sense of humor about it (and apparently really liked the interview) and decided to send flowers to Wye Oak’s dressing room last night. Wasner tweeted, “Ok fess the FUCK up WHO DID THIS?? Is this for real??” with a picture of the bouquet. “Yes It’s For Real,” replied Papa Roach who then further tweeted, “those are some pretty flowers! Haha all good girl…. Take care and good luck in this crazy biz we call show! Jacoby.”

“The moral of the story is, if you talk shit, people will send you flowers.” Wasner had the flowers on stage last night for Wye Oak’s set, which came near the end of a summer-long tour that had them on the road with Dirty Projectors. The band play tonight (9/21) with current tourmates Callers in Hoboken at Maxwell’s and tickets for that show are still available. More pictures from MHOW are below.
