This Did Not Change My Life, Damn It
Alas, we just couldn't make it to the Shins show Monday night at the Palladium Ballroom. But 18-year-old Caitlin -- who goes to Plano West and whose MySpace page features a video in which some dudes are asked, "How much money would it take [for] you to kill a puppy with your bare hands?" -- not only went to the show, but she videotaped some of the performances. And what did she do with them? D'uh. Posted them to YouTube, of course. So, if you didn't go to the show or just want to relive the band's performance of "New Slang," here it is. Thanks, Caitlin. You totally changed our afternoon. --Robert Wilonsky
