This story is about last night's show: 'Here it goes again:' Crazies rev up for Duke-UNC
Kulash kept with the lively tone by climbing onto mega-speakers, and at one point he leaned out into the audience from the stage and supported himself with sophomore Adam Barron's hand, threatening to crowd surf.
"His hand was firm and warm and manly," Barron said.
Lucius Walker can kiss my butt.
On Feb. 2, OK Go and Bonerama played their second benefit show at Washington D.C.'s 9:30 Club and that performance was streamed and Podcasted on National Public Radio.
I thought that it wasn't.
Seems Mr. Nordwind is the interviewee for this article. And a pretty good article it was.
Kulash delivered a “slam dunk,” describing his band’s climb to success (aided tremendously by the Internet.) He also presented three video clips, played straight off the web, to shore up his claims. Members seemed impressed that the video for “Here it Goes Again” has received more than 35 million views since it was first posted.
I esp. like the red socks.
Surfer Rosa- You're my hero ^^ (even more even more!!!)

The winner of the Chicago final round will take home a brand-name guitar signed by OK GO, an Xbox 360 gaming system, a Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock game and a "Too Much Good Stuff" gift basket from ampm valued at $300.
I wish I didn't suck at Guitar Hero, I would totally try this out.
Concert?! April?! House of Blues?! I wonder if just anyone can get in to see the finals. I'd totally hit that up.
while this isn't all about OK Go, they are mentioned… it's about some of our new fave boys, Bonerama!!

OK Go return to Capitol Hill
On March 10 and 11, OK Go's Damian Kulash and Rusty Ross came to Washington, D.C. to talk about the importance of net neutrality to musicians. Their appearance coincided with the one-year anniversary of our Rock the Net campaign — musicians are known for their timing (rimshot!). OK Go are in the midst of writing material for their next album, so the issue must be important for them to jet from L.A. to D.C.
Monday, March 10 saw the band members participating in a Hill briefing and meet-and-greet, where they told their story to a packed room of reporters, Congressional staffers and net neutrality supporters. Damian and Andy described the importance of the open Internet to their musical success, and then hopped up on a Senate witness table and rocked out on acoustic guitars. Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND) also popped by to voice his support for the cause. But he seemed disappointed when Damian told him that his candy apple red pants from the "Here it Goes Again" video were no longer being made.
The following day, Damian and Andy visited with Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) to talk about how open Internet structures foster innovation and creativity. Damian and Andy gave Markey the scoop on how their band became internationally known and won a Grammy, all because of a homemade video they posted on YouTube.
After that, it was over to the House Judiciary Committee, where Damian testified before members of Congress about the importance of preserving the structures that make the Internet such a powerful tool for musicians and consumers. He also played three video clips, illustrating the amazing back-and-forth between the band and their fans. Members were impressed that the video for "Here it Goes Again" has received more than 35 million views since it was first posted; less so by the actual treadmill dance routine. "I think those of us on this Committee could put together something like that," said Chairman Conyers. We think he was joking. . .
Damian interview!!!!! Yay! And I've never seen it b/f!
And it's hilarious! And there are robots!
I give him an 'A' for effort I suppose…
"The band opened with boundless energy, playing favorites like “Get Over It” and “A Million Different Ways.”
