Anyone remember that episode of the Drew Carey show where the RHPS fans rumbled with the Priscilla: Queen of the Desert fans in the street? I'm kind of like that: there's only room in my heart for one musical about cross-dressing weirdos.
Totally off-topic, but anyone ever see Welcome to Woop-Woop? Directed by the same guy who made Priscilla, and just so good and weird and funny. I don't know if it was ever even officially released, but it's a real gem.

Oh man, I used to REALLY watch the Drew Carey Show! But I woudn't really put Hedwig in the same boat as RHPS and Prascilla, it's more of a "movie" than an all out camp extravaganza.
the songs from Hedwig will be in your head for days.
as far as Fitz & The Tantrums go, I finally heard a song by them and thought it was pretty decent. Can't tell you the name of it, but I'd listen to it again.
I'm not so sure about Foster the People. I just can't get behind Pumped Up Kicks.
For the record, I love The Drew Carey Show. It was so ridiculous and sarcastic. Every once in awhile I catch it on a random channel, but not nearly enough. I wish Peachtree TV would bring it back for a full hour in syndication.

I'm over at NPR where R.E.M. is premiering their new record Collapse Into Now in a 'listening party' format. Tonally falls somewhere between New Adventures in Hi-Fi and Monster.
I really liked Accelerate, which sounded amazingly like the Lifes Rich Pageant R.E.M., but two songs into the new one and I already like it better. I didn't think they could write music like this anymore.
