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.

  • U2 @ SAP Center in San Jose
    Last night U2 performed the first U.S. date of it’s Innocence + Experience tour at SAP Center in San Jose. All four band members were present despite recent injuries sustained by both Bono and Edge. The sold out show took audience members on a walk down memory lane as the band revisited their roots. The innovative stage and lighting used gave the arena show an intimate feel, and engaged audience members in all sections of the venue. Photographs by Sugarwolf.
  • Bay to Breakers 2015 - NSFW
    The 103rd annual Bay to Breakers 12K race was packed on Sunday despite the cold weather. With a starting point a few blocks from The Embarcadero, people dressed as bananas, Elvis and everything in between ran west through the city and finished at the Great Highway where breakers crash onto Ocean Beach.
