The Killers are in town shooting their video for "Tranquilize" with Lou Reed. When I read my blog and go back three years ago -- as i do quite often these days -- this fact makes me laugh. On top of this, as many of you probably know, the Killers are also on the soundtrack for Control... which is also funny because I remember talking to their old manager a few years ago, asking him if Brandon Flowers was cute (cus i had yet to meet him in person), and his response was "people say he looks like ian curtis" and i fell in love.
Ian Curtis was in love with Lou Reed and David Bowie (another fan of the killers). He died 13 months before Brandon was born, and sometimes I like to think that he was reincarnated into a Mormon in the states. I also think i might be losing my mind.
Anyway, we have some amazing bands playing our CMJ showcase. Please come and check them out
The Photo Atlas (for lovers of bloc party and fugazi! oh shit!)
InnerPartySystem! (for lovers of depeche mode and the faint and ministry during their industrial phase)
Plus Move (if you like daftpunk or justice, you'll LOVE them)
AND A SPECIAL GUEST!
I'll also be DJing (DJ Ultragrrrl... NYC's #1 biggest hack CDJ! Hollur!) and the WOLD FAMOUS Merlin Bronques from LASTNIGHTSPARTY!
