Ok so I had a total brain lapse today and I thought Art Brut was playing Knitting Factory this week. You can imagine the perplexed response I got when I emailed their PR peeps. “Laura,” the email started, “I love you but I have no idea what you are talking about Art Brut are not in town xoox.”
Yup, it’s official: I do not have any concept of time or space.
Anyway, what you–observant and time-conscious reader–may have already noticed is that the Art Brut show has “Special Guests Art Brut 47” playing the show as well. It doesn’t take a genius to type in “art brut 47” into Google and find this article that flat out says that We Are Scientists have co-opted that name as their Art Brut cover band alias.
It also doesn’t take a genius to realize that that was exactly what Jerry was trying to say in the email I totally didn’t read. Sorry Jerry.
While it’s very exciting that WAS will most likely playing the gig, I’m still kinda hoping its another Fall Out Boy appearance.
Oh, speaking of FOB, K.F. sent me the link to this NME article that states that Fall Out Boy are so over making up beef with label-mate The Killers and want to take them out to dinner at Nobu or something. Somewhere on the Lower East Side, Ultragrrrl just busted a nut. I kid, I kid.
