The Faint have two scheduled shows in-between their Coachella dates this year! Tonight the band will be making their way to Santa Ana for their performance at The Observatory and will then travel down South for their San Diego show on Wednesday, April 17 at Fluxx.
This is the perfect opportunity to catch the band if you’re not making your way to the desert this year (#NO-CHELLA). For more information on the dates, check out their official website.
The Earth is a precious rock covered in meat sacks (humans) hurtling through space at a seemingly unending spiral of universal epicness. But it’s not just us human skin bots! We share this gorgeous and strange planet with millions of gorgeous and strange creatures (and I don’t mean your relatives). As the saying goes, knowledge is power, and the more we know about the animals that help make up our ecosystem, the better we can learn how to coexist. Thankfully, the fellas at MisterEpicMann and Onkel Bernis Welt have graced us with two videos that demonstrate the various eating styles of some of our furry and feathered friends; this is like next level PBS Nova shit right here. After watching these videos, you’ll be able to go to your family reunion, full of people who think they are better than you, and demonstrate your extensive knowledge of how a kangaroo gets his grub on. You can take joy in saying “Take that, cousin Mark, with your fucking Doctorate’s! I can eat this salad like a goddamn rhino! Bet they didn’t teach you that at Stanford!” and then give him a sample of the Cheetah dining ritual. >Boom.
Meanwhile, during Ultra Music Festival, Steve Aoki takes a few minutes to “slow down” with dutch duo SHOWTEK for another episode of Aoki Files *MIAMI EDITION*. Steve hangs out poolside with brothers Sjoerd and Wouter to talk about dabbling with different genres, writing bangers, collaborations, and possible shows with Aoki himself!
