And they were way more interesting than the show. (Ouch. How’s THAT for a review?)


Cold War Kids’ bassist Matt Maust also took BlackBook’s Pop Quiz. Here’s a sample:

When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?
For a second I wanted to be a cafeteria worker, but my dad talked me out of it pretty quick.

Have you ever been arrested?
Nope. Almost though, for stealing a golf cart in New Orleans.

From a BlackBook pop quiz with katie white

of the Ting Tings.


Are you superstitious?
Errr, I’m more paranoid than superstitious. Karma makes sense to me though.

Madonna’s greatest hits. I used to make dance routines up to it in the kitchen. Jules stole his mum’s Elvis.

If you could have any super power, what would you choose?
Flying. I’m a very nervous flyer, so I could then fly myself and get over my fear, and If I was a bird I could crap on a few peoples heads. A bird crapped in my eyeball once.


Great DJ


from a pop quiz with erika wennerstrom

of Heartless Bastards.


What restaurant would you eat at every day if you could?
I don’t think I could eat anywhere everyday, but if I had to pick, I would pick Whole Foods. They always have a good variety of food at the hot and cold bars. I don’t know if that counts since it’s a grocery, but that’s my pick.

What’s your guilty pleasure?
I don’t have cable, but sometimes when I’m at somewhere that does, I watch really dumb reality TV like Rock of Love. That show’s hilarious.

(Rock of Love! YES!)

The Bastards play with The Gaslight Anthem tomorrow at Webster Hall. Check ch-check-check-check ch-check it out… if you already have tickets, that is. ‘Cause that shit is sold out.
