Two weeks ago the School of Rock came together with a bunch of Portland bands, including Menomena, the Mean Jeans and others. Really great vocal performances from the kids singing Menomena and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and hot damn, the seven-year-old playing drums with the Jeans is a goddamn shredder. And so, so, strange kids are even allowed on-stage to sing songs about getting wasted with the Jeans, or picking out Anton Newcombe's junkie jams. That said, so for it. Well done, all.
There's a whole bunch more of the performances over at the YouTube channel, including tunes from The Gossip, YACHT, The Dandy Warhols and more.
