Best known for The OC’s theme song “California”, Phantom Planet will be playing a free show tonight at Bottom of the Hill with fellow indie band The Hush Sound. This show is first come, first serve… so plan on getting there well before their doors open at 7PM to bank on getting inside.
Aside from lending their song to a hit teen drama, Phantom Planet should really be getting recognition for much more than that. Apart from the obvious–that they’re a good listen–they’re good for a game of Six Degrees of Separation… leading to YOU, the reader… so here we go!
1. Jason Schwartzman (from your favorite Wes Anderson flicks) was their drummer before branching out with his own band Coconut Records (whose song “West Coast” was also featured in The OC).
2. Jason’s brother Robert is the front man for Rooney.
3. Rooney went on tour this past summer with The Redwalls (their song was in an AT&T commercial).
4. Their tour manager Curly was my old roommate.
5. His old roomate is writing this very blog.
6. You’re reading this very blog… stunned that you didn’t realize the connection earlier, and are moving plans around to see your good friends of Phantom Planet play a free show for you tonight!
