For those in the 20-something generation like myself, when you think of Morris Day & the Time is it really wrong to instantly think of Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back?
Because that’s what I thought of when I saw that the band was performing on Jimmy Kimmel Live as part of his new Mashup Mondays series that combines 2 bands into 1 cleverly titled new band. Last night it was Morris Day & the Time with HAIM… wait for it… Morris Day & the HAIM.
I love puns and I approve this one. I also approve their performance of “Jungle Love”, which found the girls swinging and shuffling along as well. Funky.
HAIM goes all out with their new video for the A$AP Ferg featured “My Song 5 (Remix)”. They create a Maury-esque talk show setting with SNL’s Vanessa Bayer as ‘Dallas Murphy’, the host. A$AP Ferg appears as a guest and other cameos include Big Sean, Ke$ha, Grimes, and Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig. That’s a little bit of a random group, no? Watch the odd and entertaining video above.
I feel like I’ve seen video of a lot of performances of Coachella, but not yet Kid Cudi. Sure enough, for weekend 2 a few days ago, Cudi brought out not only HAIM for “Red Eye” seen above, but also MGMT for a special performance of “Pursuit of Happiness”. Unfortunately, the fan footage doesn’t possibly do it justice, but we do get a sense of the set and energy in addition to just seeing all the artists on the stage together (a rarity, if not, a first). Enjoy!
