It’s sort of awesome how many excuses Showalter’s been giving us to post up his wares this past year. Underneath all the muso satire and playlist deception, you know there’s a just a guy who loves his music. (As in, loves his music.) Most recently seen stumping for Barack, Michael continues the indie rock approved activity by stumping for the PLUG Awards — via this video, inviting a cam crew into his mixtape store. In his parents’ basement.
As you saw at the outro there, the PLUGs are handed out 3/6 at Terminal 5 and hosted by Patton Oswalt (with music guests Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, St. Vincent, Dizzee Rascal, José González). Got a favorite band or blog? Vote here.
