    "Last night Regina and I performed at the Littlest Tumor Foundation benefit with Judd Apatow, Zach Galafianakis and John Mulaney at Largo. It was a super fun show (they were all hilarious). Regina played a bunch of great new songs and we did a duet of "Space Oddity" in tribute to David Bowie."

    Stepped On A Syringe got a reaction from porcupine-ologist in In search of the Holy Grail...   
    It seems like ages ago that the song file was floating around on here. I'm sure people could dig it up on old hard-drives. But unfortunately I don't have it. 
     
    The cover was very 11:11-ish (vocal-wise), since it is of that era, and featured a rock style band accompaniment that you would imagine fitting for the song.

    Stepped On A Syringe reacted to himynameism in Irving Plaza - 19 November 2014   
    I wish I could go back and repeat this night over again! Two new songs + two songs I've never seen her play before + Regi hugs after the show = the most perfect night! I have had the Party Upstairs song stuck in my head ever since. I really really hope there is a new album next year!

    Stepped On A Syringe got a reaction from himynameism in "Stupid Things" by Sarah Dooley   
    A friend of mine, who I'm sure a few of you are familiar with, has recently released her debut album "Stupid Things."
     
    Regina's music is one of her principle inspirations, and it is clearly seen through her lyrics and musical style. I believe, although I haven't asked her, that there are even quite a few allusions and references to regina's songs in a few of her own. 
     
    Her album focuses mostly on childhood, adolescence, and the transition into adulthood. My favorite tracks are "Shadows," "Stupid Things," and "Peonies."
     
    You can watch the music video for "Peonies"here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nCEU7tzkGE
     
    Listen to her interview on NPR's "Morning Edition" here: http://www.npr.org/2014/03/04/285581193/sarah-dooley-releases-debut-album-stupid-things
     
    Buy her album on iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/stupid-things/id764750930
     
    Sarah, a fellow native of Indiana and alumna of Barnard College of Columbia University (in the City of New York) studied playwriting in college and was involved heavily in theater and drama. Her comedy web-series "And Sarah" has gained some internet fame, as well. She's quite funny and goofy, qualities that are exposed through her music, as well. Watch her web series here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0diHw_XZB_8
     
    She's really quite entertaining, and her album has a few gems on it that I'm sure many of you will enjoy. If any of you out there like the movie The Goonies (not sure how one couldn't like this movie), this album is worth a listen.
     
    While Sarah is an acquaintance of mine and I support her artistic endeavors fully, I also truly think it is fantastic that regina's music has influenced and inspired a new generation of musicians and songwriters. In my mind, I still see regina as the underdog, the underground musician, the hidden secret. It still surprises me when I meet people these days who actually are familiar with her music, because I have not yet processed her fame and widespread recognition. Just as regina used to cite her own influences, Joni Mitchell, Ani DiFranco, The Beatles, now regina has become one of those citations, herself. How the time flies!
     
    And no, Sarah didn't pay me to post this!

    Stepped On A Syringe got a reaction from robertaxel in Why is the song "Fidelity" called "Fidelity"?   
    ^ Yup! She mentions in the interview that while watching the movie, she was inspired to quickly put the song together. There's also a great live performance where she says that she imagines Jack Black dancing to the springy piano chords that introduce the song--a very silly mental image

    "Hi there friends!
    I was so happy to be nominated for my first Grammy! I would have definitely gone to LA for all the fun, in a party dress and with bells on, if I wasn't so super pregnant at the moment. (!!!!!!!!!!). Jack and I are very excited to be expecting a brand new human together!!! I've been spending most of my time writing songs, dreaming up the new record, cooking soup, eating soup, and being very grateful for the people in my life- family, friends, and you…
    So I'm glad to share the news, and I wish everyone who is going to the Grammys an amazing night!
    Thank you to the Grammy peeps for nominating "You've Got Time!"
    I'll see you from the couch
