Menomena Take Us to School

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Mon, Sep 27, 2010 at 7:42 AM

Hey look, it's Menomena in a vacant classroom. Is this a statement on our nation's crumbling public education system, the band's very own Waiting for Superman that isn't actually a cover of the Flaming Lips' "Waiting for Superman"? Or maybe the kids were just outside playing tetherball when the band filmed this live version of "TAOS" for Pitchfork? Who knows?

Also, the band will be performing the same song on Last Call With Carson Daly this Tuesday night. It'll be pretty much the same as this clip, just substitute an empty classroom with an empty television studio. Zing! I just made a Carson Daily joke! I'm so proud of myself right now.
