We met the @thelonelyisland gang back toward the beginning. At the time, we thought they were funny, smart, and actually pretty musically gifted. We did some early music video stuff with them, etc. Fast-forward to tonight… tbh, Akiva, Jorma & Andy would have been the *last* members of the Lonely Island crew that we’d ever have imagined making it this far… but damn, here they are, with a vengeance. Tonight’s show was incredible. Would love to have also seen Mark, Antoinette, Lon, Kerri, Beatriz, Greg, and Foster. 🤷‍♂️

Here’s us with two-4ths of Communipaw, Keith Carne’s mistress band. (KC winning the smile competition here.) They’ve got a record-release show THIS SUNDAY at Union Pool (North Brooklyn), several hours before #gameofthrones lops off its own head. (This will be the perfect pre-party.) This Communipaw record, “Power Plant,” is a GREAT listen, and whether you can come to the show or not (lookin at you, Australians, Europeans, and Chinese) you should Spotify it ASAP. /// Also playing is the wonderful @anniehartforsure, who we vouch for, plus Nave Especial, who we’ve never seen but are likely pretty damn good, considering their company. /// See ya at the thing! @communipawmusic @ Union Pool

We Are Scientists May 11, 2019
On this date in the year 1917, on a hot Brooklyn night etched with lightning and drenched by rain, Keith Murray was born. He had a full head of argentine hair and a piercing wail that shattered the monocle of the attending physician. A year later and in the same hospital, Steve Rogers entered the world, and each man would go on to become central figures in entertainment, and in defending the planet from alien monsters. Indeed, when Captain America went off the grid after the events described in the documentary film “Captain America: Winter Soldier,” it was Keith to whom Pepper Potts and Natasha Romanoff turned as a best-case replacement for Cap’s lynchpin role in The Avengers. Keith knew that because of his schedule with We Are Scientists he couldn’t accept the offer, but he didn’t tell that to Potts and Romanoff until after they had flown with him on the Quinjet to Iceland, where the three spent a lost weekend together in the geothermal baths, availing themselves of round-the-clock darkness. // During the 1930’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s, Keith became recognized as a pioneer of rock-&-roll guitar, musical theater, puppetry, conjuring, phrenology, locksmithing, hypnosis, and shiatsu. By 1990 he was burned out, and decided to devote himself to motorboat racing. It has often been said that Keith Murray never attempted an activity at which he didn’t subsequently excel, but in nearly ten years of motorboat racing, he disabled or destroyed 91 boats, fatally injured a dozen manatees, and completed just one race, crossing the finish line 36 minutes after the second-to-last finisher. At the turn of the century, he chose to rededicate himself to show business, and We Are Scientists was born. // For the last 19 years, he has been our axe-handler, our crooner, and easily our most aggressive dancer. He has led the charge, and without his exceptional skill as both a performer and a songwriter, we’d never have made it out of the basement. He may have chosen a path less purely dedicated to public service & sacrifice than Captain America did, but as anyone who’s seen the final minutes of “Avengers: Endgame” can attest, Keith looks a hell of a lot better for his age. 🎂

☀️LOS ANGELES: The finest man we know is also one hell of a photographer. Dan Monick has shot many of our best promo pics and album covers over the last 15 years, and he constantly shoots awesome sh*t for other people and for himself. If it were anyone else, we’d be jealous, but it’s Dan, and the world needs as many of his images as it can get. This Saturday from 7-9pm, his show Goodbye to Romance opens at @thesedays.la . You will feel like a stupid asshole if you miss it, especially if you live in Southern California. We have a show in Philadelphia this Saturday, so definitely can’t make it, and we still feel like foolish, foolish assholes. -~-~-~-~-~- @danmonickphoto

#tbt 13 years ago — we did a tour diary for now defunct website iMeem. The first two pics show the outline for a web banner advertising the diary. Pic 4 is the text for the entry we logged the day after our show with @arcticmonkeys at The Warfield in SF. If memory serves, we stretched the truth a little for this update. @ The Warfield

Our new tune “Second Acts” has got people ROCKING THE HELL OUT. Want to try? http://smarturl.it/SecondActs
We Are Scientists Feb 15, 2019
Ten songs is the correct number of songs for an album. The problem is we write torrents of songs that we love but get excluded from the gang because they don’t have the right haircut or their breath was weird — not *bad,* just maybe had a tinge of some mysterious spice that didn’t sit well with the group. Second Acts is just such a song. Smell it here: smarturl.it/SecondActs
