Ready to blast off into your weekend?

Our Rudiments correspondent Dave Hill isn’t just a handsome international playboy and beloved comedian. He’s also the frontman of the excellent rock band Valley Lodge.

We don’t want to give anything away, but suffice it to say that not only is the video for their new single “Go” (which premiered today at Spin) rocking and exciting, it also has a hilarious surprise. Watch closely.

Our pal Greg Behrendt is the only standup comedian we know with sartorially-themed tattoos. His great instrumental rock band The Reigning Monarchs plays music that sounds like the soundtrack to an awesome movie that doesn’t exist yet, and they’re raising money on IndieGoGo to make a new record and head out on tour in 2013. To celebrate the holiday, they posted this lovely holiday tune… “God Rest Ye Merry Sweatermen.” Seriously, these guys LOVE cardigans.

Matt Berninger from The National was over today, and I noticed that his breast pocket was looking a little empty, so I gave him one of our PTO Gentlemen’s Association pocket squares. There are still a few left in our stock made from vintage 1960s Irish linen. Matt’s poof is a little elevated, but it looks pretty good for a first-timer.
