Scott Masson, the multi-instrumentalist songwriter behind Office, and I went to college together in Michigan. We dated the same girl once, which I take as evidence that either we both had excellent taste or she had a thing for bald drummer guys with prominent noses:
Masson on left, Dirtbag on right. Note the large stage, shades, and useful ability to play guitar on the left, the lovely Hawaiian backdrop and Magnum PI molting on the right.
Office is getting some pretty significant love these days, both from Pitchfork, who didn’t eviscerate their new record, A Night at the Ritz, and their record was put out by James Iha, who used to look cool (and sometimes play guitar, when Billy had mellowed out enough) in a band called the Smashing Pumpkins. Anyway, it’s safe to say that I’ll be at the show, which also features Earlimart (who I’ve never really understood) and firstwavehello, who I gushed about earlier in a post today.
Here’s what Office looks like:
