Watch Christopher R. Weingarten’s Epic Duet With Justin Bieber


Perhaps you were unaware of Voice critic/Twitter celebrity/Hipster Puppies impresario Christopher R. Weingarten’s sideline as a noise-punk drummer of alarming ferocity, as anyone who saw Parts & Labor back in the day can attest. Well, during last weekend’s one-day-only Sequence of Waves art exhibit at an old Williamsburg convent, Chris performed a “duet” with that super-slowed-down version of Justin Bieber’s “U Smile” that had the Internet going nuts for a few hours last year. We are now proud to offer the full 12-minute video of this performance: Watch one of his drumsticks basically disintegrate at around the 4:40 mark. Hopefully Justin will do a drum solo to an old P&L song as response — this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
