Last month Death Cab For Cutie returned to the spotlight with “You Are A Tourist,” the great first single and video from their forthcoming Codes And Keys.

Killers & Psychedelic Furs Do “Pretty In Pink” In L.A.

But before they started, though, Jimmy Kimmel did his best half-assed Kanye-at-the-VMAs impression. The show took place 9/16 at the Hollywood Bowl, where the Furs were opening for the Killers.
