The Most Connected Puppet In Indie Rock

Internet television station downtownTV.com has a cute show called Puppet Music Hall, in which some fun artists drop by to sing a tune or two with a deep-voiced, red creature of some sort. The Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer hams it up the most with the puppet on “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” and Devendra Banhart’s “Over The Rainbow” is the most “bacchanalian,” but Jenny Lewis is the fairest of them all, singing “Happy” (accompanied by Johnathan Rice). He even gets Billy Squier to sing “Everybody Wants You”! Hand puppets have all the fun.
