What better praise can there be for a tribute band than to have your band's inspiration come to one of your shows? Former PBS show host Bill Nye swung by a performance of Colorado band Bill Nye and the Science Guys. He danced, sang, and did everything but explain the greenhouse effect.
Music festival SXSW is underway! Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band led a two and a half hour set, which closed with an assemblage members of Arcade Fire, The Low Anthem, and more to sing Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land."
Coldplay covered "Fight for Your Right to Party" at the Hollywood Bowl last week in honor of Adam Yauch's death. A nice sentiment, but what do we think of the aggressively Coldplay-stylized version, or the fact that the Beastie Boys publicly disowned the song and have long since stopped performing it live?
