IHC After Dark: Ben Kweller at Austin City Limits

That time at the Austin City Limits Festival when Ben Kweller had a burst capillary in his nose but kept playing anyway. He asks the crowd for a tampon, so they start throwing hundreds of them up on stage, and he proceeds to play his set with a tampon up his nose until he’s told he needs to go to the hospital. Party on.

Bass playing robot has just made bass players obsolete

This MechBass by a student named James at Victoria University of Wellington rocks out harder than any two-handed bassist ever could by four separate picks, one for each roboticly fingered string.
