What the What Was Rhett Miller Doing on 30 Rock Last Night?
No doubt your Today in Music News item's forthcoming. But till then, this bonus video from last night's so-so 30 Rock season ender, where, as Pete has pointed out a few times, a certain Old 97 made a cameo alongside the likes of Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crow, Michael McDonald, Moby, Mary J. Blige, Clay Aiken, two-thirds of the Beastie Boys, Cyndi Lauper, Steve Earle, Adam Levine and on and on. (Also guesting was another former local, Norah Jones. So, bonus.) Those who need the whole set-up to this rather outdated parody can watch the entire episode here; suffice it to say, Alec Baldwin's newfound dad, Alan Alda, needs a kidney, and what passes for hilarity on a show usually noted for its hilarity except in this instance ensues. Enjoy.
