The Killers On SNL: Are They “Human” Or Are They “Spaceman”

Both. But Whatever you think of the Killers, one thing is inarguable: Brandon Flowers despises conventional torso-wear. The band returned to Studio 8H looking trim and with plumage on their shoulder pads (well Brandon did anyway) to perform two from their forthcoming set Day & Age: “Human,” which has been streaming and sounded a little less Europoppy live, and this album’s “Read My Mind” (which I love), “Spaceman,” originally debuted at that fan club show in NYC a few months ago).

Wiig kills some more:

Best ep this season, which isn’t saying a lot, but still. If you missed it, Videogum’s got just the funny parts.
