'Be Gone Dull Cage', by Orange County indie rock band, Kiev, recently featured in Walking Dead (Slabtown, Season 5, Episode 4).
Kiev's full-length debut, Falling Bough Wisdom Teeth (co-produced/engineered alongside Chris Shaw (Wilco, Super Furry Animals, and released by Suspended Sunrise Recordings) follows two independent EPs: 2010's Ain't No Scary Folks In On Around Here and 2011's, Be Gone Dull Cage & Others (co-produced by Darrell Thorp, Beck, Air, Radiohead), which was reviewed as 'trippy and cerebral at the same time, occupying that sometimes-exhilarating, sometimes-discomfiting space between left and right brain.' The singles, 'Crooked Strings' and 'Falling Bough' have received extensive airplay on KROQ's Locals Only show, while Kiev was named 'Best Indie Band' consecutively at the 2011 and 2012 Orange County Music Awards (cited for 'intricate, eclectic music and big live sound') and earned an emerging artist spotlight from RollingStone.com.

This is probably the strangest cast of characters brought on the Tonight Show for a single game to date. In an unlikely turn of events on Monday, NBA superstar Charles Barkley, Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy and actor Ewan McGregor joined Jimmy Fallon for an intense game of charades. We learned that Fallon and Barkley are not exactly a dream pairing... (they will turn a game of charades into a shouting match...but if asked to act out any movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Barkley will dominate!
A couple of weeks ago, we posted an article about Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and his son Spencer going on tour together and their plan to release Sukierae, an album under the familial moniker, Tweedy.

Fashion is everything at WILCO, and Gayle Sullivan and her girls are taking the fashion world by storm with their new look.
Music, Comedy, Fashion... with a touch of crack.
Jeff Tweedy is a singer, songwriter and guitarist whose critically acclaimed, creatively adventurous band Wilco has just released its eighth studio album, The Whole Love - the first on its own record label.
Hosted by Sid Pink, this episode features comedian Christie Buchele and emerging Boulder quartet The Yawpers. Led by dynamic young singer-songwriter Nate Cook and guitarist Jesse Parmet, The Yawpers recall a grittier version of Wilco, with as much raw country sensibility as twisted indie imagination.
These young musicians from Chicago blend rap, rhythm, horns and guitars, crafting what they call, Traphouse Rock. The group s 2012 debut record, Traphouse Rock, was produced by WILCO S Jeff Tweedy. The recording stunned critics with its maturity, range and rawness. It shocked marketers, too - that s because the band offers the release as a download completely free of charge.

Passenger Side -- The NEW official trailer for PASSENGER SIDE - http://www.passengersidemovie.com
ABOUT THE FILM:
Michael Brown's (ADAM SCOTT) birthday begins with a telephone call from his estranged, drug addicted brother Tobey (JOEL BISSONNETTE). Tobey is totally unaware that it is his older brothers birthday, but he is very aware that his car is broken, and he begs Michael to drive him on various apparently legitimate, vital errands.
As Bruce Springsteen has astutely noted, 'a man who turns his back on his family just aint no good', and so Michael puts off his seemingly romantic birthday plans, and with his brother embarks on a sketchy, meandering day long odyssey though the mysteries of Los Angeles County.
As the day wears on, it becomes clear that this drive will lead them to some very unexpected destinations.
Touted by L.A. Weekly as 'a thinking man's Judd Apatow Flick' and 'a poignant portrait of sibling rivalry and affection' by The Hollywood Reporter, PASSENGER SIDE is the third film from writer/director MATTHEW BISSONNETTE ('Looking For Leonard', 'Who Loves the Sun'), starring ADAM SCOTT, JOEL BISSONNETTE and ROBIN TUNNEY, and featuring songs by LEONARD COHEN, DINOSAUR JR., EVAN DANDO, WILCO and many others...
PASSENGER SIDE was recently named to 'Canada's Top Ten' films of 2009 by the Toronto International Film Festival.
