So we went to see Vampire Weekend at The Ryman last night. Showed up late, missed the opening band, stood around, etc. And took pictures. Here's, like, a photo essay or something.

Seth Graves Does Surfer Blood, Vimby-Wise

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 3:13 PM

Hey, remember when Surfer Blood played The End with Turbo Fruits back in February? The Spin was there. So was Seth Graves, but Seth Graves had a camera and the presence of mind to shoot the breeze with Surfer Blood, and ... well, The Spin didn't. The admirable Admiral Graves (of the S.S. Party All the Time) shot and edited the video you see above for Vimby, and he got the Surfer boys to talk about road life and whatnot. Also, any mom who would kick you out of the house for roasting a bone and quitting piano lessons deserves to watch you get rich while she continues to toil in anonymity. Nice work, Gravy Boat.

Sondre Lerche's Lake Fever Session

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 12:43 PM

What kind of a person would do a Lake Fever Session with such unassuming, modest charm? Why, a Norwegian would. Get it? "Norwegian Wood"? Alright, alright. Well, back when crooning foreigner Sondre Lerche was in town to play 12th & Porter on Valentine's Day Eve, he decided to pop in at our favorite local podcast-creatin', performance-filmin', record-recordin' studio and crank out a few tunes in a most intimate manner.

Above you'll see "Heartbeat Radio," the titular song from Lerche's 2009 record. Surf — virtually, of course — on over to Lake Fever Sessions to view three other tunes from the pulchritudinous Scandinavian, including "It's Gonna Rain Today," "My Hands Are Shakin' " and "Minor Details."

Mosh Silently, Flash Mob [Kids These Days]

Posted By on Tue, Apr 6, 2010 at 9:50 AM

The Internet and the times being what they are, people have discovered fun in forming groups and showing up en masse somewhere, so as to surprise and delight other people — and, mostly, themselves — with their outlandish antics. Step two, of course, is to then upload the video to the tubes so we can all be surprised and delighted by their outlandish antics. College and weed being what they are, these Belmont kids decided to roam around Nashville and mosh ... silently. Well, silently except for the giggling of the dude holding the camera. And this is apparently what the kids call "moshing" these days.
