SILVERSUN PICKUPS (Brian Aubert) | Los Angeles
Photos and words by Samantha Saturday
Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups took a quick browse around Amoeba to pick up some CDs and DVDs. No, this wasn’t for Amoeba’s “What’s In My Bag?” series on YouTube. Rather, Aubert left bassist Nikki Monninger on stage to pluck out the bassline of “Panic Switch” while the singer perused the aisles. The duo performed acoustically in support of their release The Singles Collection with quite a bit of humor mixed in. Aubert jokingly accused Sarah Negahdari of The Happy Hollows (who filled in for Monninger during her leave of absence to care for her children) for poking holes in the bassist’s condoms in order to continue touring with the band.
