RJD2 on stage, 4/10/10

RJD2 tore up the Wild Buffalo in Bellingham to a packed house on the 58th stop of his 59-city tour. Mixing new songs from his album "The Collossus" with older favorites from "Deadringer" and "The Horror," Rambling John played an array of turntables, mixing boards, computers, gadgets and guitar and sang too. A good time was had by all!

And here's a RJD2 on-air radio mix from 2004 for your funky enjoyments:



I think it might be impossible to not like, love even, the tune "Lisztomania" by Phoenix -- easily the best pop tune of 2009, up there with Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy." Here is the studio version, and here is a short acoustic version just for good measure. Even more importantly, this song has reached a critical mass of cultural saturation and is now being taught to our children in school. Seriously, this rendition is just plain AWESOME:


Muppet Mob?
