We've been taking a hiatus from Pomplamoose news after our cover story on the local YouTube sensation back in February, but this is too memetastic to resist: It's Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn covering the theme from Angry Birds -- that little cellphone videogame you use to keep from slitting your wrists while riding Muni.

If not already an unhealthy obsession among the smartphone classes, Angry Birds is soon to become one. This video will only contribute, as Conte and Dawn supply a cute but raucous cover of the game's rather innocuous theme. Their version begins with Dawn's sweet vocals and features one of Pomplamoose's heaviest guitar-rock moments so far. The blitz of a video clip has Conte and Dawn brawling in a slapsticky, Angry Birds style. All that's missing are the chortling pigs.

The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
