The Beastie Boys dance-battle themselves in their new music video “Make Some Noise” which was released yesterday as an extended trailer for their upcoming short film “Fight For Your Rights – Revisited.” The video features Elijah Woods, Danny McBride and Seth Rogen as young Beastie Boys doppelgangers wreaking havoc and partying in the streets of Brooklyn amongst star studded walk-ons from the likes of Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, and Steve Buscemi. The action stops abruptly when the young Beastie Boys come across the time machine from Back to the Future. Read More
If you’re livin’ in LA, I would recommend clearing your schedule on May 7th. Some of our favorite gals, The Living Sisters and Zooey Deschanel, will be covering the songs of another personal favorite, Patsy Cline! Does it get any better than that? Didn’t think so. In celebration of country western music’s most distinctive voice, these contemporary songbirds will pay tribute to Patsy’s “I Fall To Pieces” and “Crazy” among others. Read More
