Check out this interview with local-boy-made-good Ben Kweller (this time, sans tampon) at the 2007 ACL fest a couple weeks back (wait…a month back? Three weeks? Jesus, what day is it?). It’s cool and everything, especially the shoutout he gives to Club Dada, except looks like word never made it up to New York, where Kweller now lives, that Dada reopened some time ago...
There’s also his lack o’ knowledge about Gypsy Tea Room. Still, we love us some BK--his Muppet mop-top and musical pop-pop make for a sort of stoner-y charm (and also some great songs). Kweller’s in studio right now in Austin, then he takes off for Australia in a couple weeks (wait, days? Jeez…). If you’re not lucky enough to live Down Under, you can sate your need for all things Kweller by checking out the video of his entire ACL set, available through his Web site. -- Jonanna Widner
