Jim Carrey Covered Radiohead And Smashing Pumpkins @ Arlene’s Grocery, Apparently
In the grand tradition of Stereogum covering comedians covering Radiohead, here is putty-faced entertainer Jim Carrey and his band (of course) on the Lower East Side Friday night giving the business to “Creep” at forgotten rock room Arlene’s Grocery for a crowd full of people who, I dunno, are fans enough of Jim Carrey to know he has a band (of course) in the first place. Which probably is a lot of people, come to think of it. So here he is with a solid band, and with a black leather jacket exuding more charisma than the average frontman gracing that venue’s stage. Also Jim’s got good mojo, too. (That is an Arlene’s burn.)
About this clip: You don’t really care it exists, but at the same time you sort of do care and want it to be good enough to send to your “Creep” and/or Carrey-obsessed friend, so it is here for you to share or not share as you wish:
