Why Jack Antonoff Is a Pop Star Even a Mother Could Love

18 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Sorry if I look weird. Am I bleeding from the side of my face?” Jack Antonoff asks, opening the door to his childhood home in suburban Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. He’s just completed the second of three rounds of major dental work and has been injected with Novocain “everywhere,” he says. “The entire right side of my face is numb. I can’t feel anything.” Antonoff’s eyes are pink and watery, and he keeps cocking his jaw and groaning, but that doesn’t stop the 30-year-old fun. guitarist from cheerily showing me the room he grew up in, ­every surface (including the ceiling) ­covered in posters and memorabilia—­Beatles dolls next to Anthrax stickers and Wayne’s World stills; windows covered in faded concert tickets for bands from Depeche Mode to the Max Weinberg 7; one wall just for Jimi Hendrix; another for skateboarding, ska, and Green Day (the »

‘Glad All Over’ Fortifies Dave Clark Five’s Might at Forefront of British Invasion

7 April 2014 5:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Most people who perceive the Beatles and the Rolling Stones as having led the British Invasion might be surprised to learn that the Dave Clark Five gave both groups a run for their money during their mid-’60s heyday. And that whole Beatles vs. Stones thing? The DC5 vs. the Fab Four constituted its own rivalry, at least according to the documentary “The Dave Clark Five and Beyond” — Glad All Over,” airing Tuesday, April 8, at 8 p.m. and Friday, April 11, at 10 p.m. on PBS (Koce in Los Angeles) as part of the “Great Performances” series.

Judging by the milestones, the Tottenham-based DC5 made it their business to one-up their Liverpool counterparts, beginning with the single “Glad All Over,” which supplanted “I Want to Hold Your Hand” at the top of the U.K. singles chart in 1964 and performing on “The Ed Sullivan Show” 18 times compared to the Beatles’ trio of appearances. »

19 February 2014 10:30 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As Fred Armisen preps his newly formed 8G Band for its debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers on February 24th, he's looking within himself for guidance and asking, "What would Wayne Coyne do?" And, like most people who've long lost their Wwjd bracelets, "What would James Franco do?" The SNL alumnus pondered those Big Questions and explained how he assumed the throne Questlove left behind in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Fred Armisen To Lead Seth Meyers’ ‘Late Night’ Band

10 February 2014 1:24 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Johnny Carson had Doc Sevirensen. David Letterman has Paul Shaffer. Conan O’Brien had Max Weinberg. And Seth Meyers will have Fred Armisen?

Meyers, set to take over NBC’s regular “Late Night” franchise at 12:35 a.m. starting February 24, will be joined by a band led by Armisen. The two had overlapping tenures at “Saturday Night Live.” Meyers, who started with the show in 2001, left the program after its most recent live broadcast, while Armisen joined in 2002 and left in 2013.

“Fred will curate and lead the band, and continue to run it even when he’s off shooting Portlandia,” Meyers said on Twitter Monday.
