Jason Schwartzman (of Rushmore fame)

Jason Schwartzman (of Rushmore fame) is a kickass drummer. Though his band wasn’t well received at last night’s Tenacious D show they certainly knew how to rock and I enjoyed their set.

The D were pretty good; part of why it wasn’t great was the acoustics of The Warfield were terrible and everyone was over-mic’d, but a big part is their rising fame. For many of the same reasons why I wasn’t entirely happy with their CD, their brand of comedy relies on projecting a delusion of grandeur. It was funny when I saw them sing “The Road Song” a year and half ago at an LA club, because they’d never done a show outside of Los Angeles. Now that they’re on a national tour, the humor is lost. Though, their stage show is still goofy and will make you laugh.
