Coachella Music Fest!
Also by Saturday April 29
The Franz Ferdinand / hip-hop connection, while not immediately obvious, can't be denied. Kanye West refered to their music as 'white crunk' and admittingly used the Scottish band as inspiration for the album, Late Registration. Even Snoop Dogg made it clear that he intends to collaborate with them. Thus it's no suprise that Franz chose hip-hop director Diane Martel for this amusingly obnoxious video of Franz trashing a pretentious art opening. The song's lyrics recant meaningless banter that was once shouted into frontman Alex Kapranos' ear at such an event.
Other Sunday April 30 Acts
Lead Karen O said that her band's latest record, Show Your Bones, is about 'what happens when you put your finger in a light socket' and not about her cat, as previously reported to MTV by producer Sam 'Squeak E. Clean' Speigel. Lots of fire in the video!
This multi-national, multi-cultural band performs live before an audience filled with handsome guys and beautiful gals.
