TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL?
If the indie-rock blogosphere has done anything, its created a nation of young people chomping at the bit to demonstrate their mastery over the arcana of the form. Thing about blogs, though: You never know whos reading them. Tonight, you can flex your head (thats the title of a Dischord comp from 1982) with a real live audience; Indie Rock Trivia is to be played in teams, and superfantabulous prizes are promised ($500 to the winners). Indie-comedy guy Zach Galifianakis (who was in a Kanye West video with Will Oldham) hosts, while Les Savy Fav (whose first album came packaged with three shower caps) provide the musical entertainment. One more factoid: This is part of New York magazines New York by New York series, which means that the price of admission also earns you a subscription. Are we allowed to say that in the Voice? [Why not? Were all in this print apocalypse together.Ed.]
