Alkaline Trio’s Dan Adriano Talks Slapstick Reunion

Alkaline Trio bass player and all around awesome guy Dan Adriano recently played a show with his old legendary Ska-Punk band, Slapstick. Slapstick are famous for their blend of ska and punk back in the day as well as their members going on to form Tuesday, Alkaline Trio, The Falcon and the amazing The Lawerence Arms.


Slapstick recently reunited to play the Asian Man Records 15 year anniversary party and may be doing some more shows:

 

Dan told Thepunksite.com : “I think it will happen again, I mean we talked about it. If I’m not mistaken, we actually had an opportunity to play in Chicago this fall, but I am going to be in Europe with this Revival (Tour) deal. Unfortunately, we could not do that, but [another reunion] is not off the table. We all had a lot of fun and it is definitely not out of the question. I would like to make it happen again at some point.”

Super Cute Indie Rock Couple Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard To Divorce

Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard are divorcing! After two years of being married the couple announced their split to Us Weekly.

Zooey is famous for her movie roles (Elf, 500 Days of Summer and my fav. Almost Famous!) as well as her new show New Girl and her awesome band, She & Him. She also is the sister of Emily Deschanel (you know…Bones).

Ben Gibbard is in Death Cab for Cutie and occasionally The Postal Service.

Via Huffington Post:

Deschanel opened up to iVillage in July about her marriage to the rocker, who is often away on tour.

“You still have to make a commitment and think about that commitment every day,” she said, adding that being married isn’t too different than just being in a relationship. “It’s not like you get married and then all the work is done for you. You get married and you’re still in a relationship and you’re still doing your best to make it the best relationship you can.”

Gibbard, on the other hand, once made a bold statement about relationships.

“I would rather make great records than make great relationships,” he wrote in an article for Paste magazine in 2008.

He later clarified his statement in May, telling Spinner he was in a bad place in his life back then.

“Romantic relationships had come and gone, friendships have grown and withered, but this band was constant,” he said.
