Tommy Gnosis Michael Pitt aka Tommy Knosis from (the movie adaptation of) Hedwig and the Angry Inch (that's who he'll always be to me) aka Kurt Cobain in the upcoming Last Days movie sings and plays guitar in a band called Pagoda. They just played at Cannes. "Coming next is Pagoda's debut album, which has already been recorded."

This month's Wednesday night residency at Pianos in NYC features a band called Aloke "w/ very special guests PAGODA" (not to be confused with "VERY special guest." Keep reading.) According to, "pulsating rythms, catchy guitar and punk influences make Aloke!" You can catch Aloke and Pagoda at Pianos June 8th, 15th, 22nd. (They also played last night, June 1st, 2005). Hopefully an Olsen twin will show up to support.

BUT WAIT, there's more... According to Pianos' website and Ticketweb where you can buy tickets, the final residency show on the 22nd features Saints & Lovers AND a VERY special guest.

UPDATE: The Modern Age was at last night's show and points to some Pagoda MP3s
