We've Been Nominated For A VMA!
The wise old souls at MTV have finally recognized what the civilized world has known for decades: OK Go should have won a VMA. In order to right past wrongs, the boys have been nominated for this year's Video Music Awards, in the category of Best Video (That Should Have Won A Moon Man).

Even better, they've stacked the deck in our favor, by putting the boys up against a bunch of unknowns and never-wases like Dr. Dre, Radiohead and the Beastie Boys. It might feel like a lock, but it's really anything but. We need you to vote as much as you can, as often as the Internet allows you.

Vote here.

And, as always, feel free to tweet about it and myspace it and facebook it and mommyblog it and all that other stuff, too.

Urban Legends and City Stories
If you go to Banana Republic and buy something, they'll give you a download card for an album called "City Stories." The first track? Skyscrapers, the most recent OK Go opus, a song whose lyrics were scrawled on the back of the US Constitution in big sloppy letters by John Hancock himself (in witch's blood, no less). No Banana Republic nearby? You can hear it on myspace.com/okgo as well.

Hear The First Song From The New Album
Entertainment Weekly has an article with Damian where he talks about recording the album, talks about how they named it, and previews the first song from the thing. It's called "Skyscrapers" and you can listen to it and read about it (at the same time!) right here.

Burrito Project & Chicago Apple Store Show
The boys are playing twice in Chicago this Thursday--at 4pm at the Apple Store and that night at the Double Door--but before the shows they've teamed up with the Inspiration Corporation to try and do a little bit of good.

We're looking for 20 volunteers to meet up with OK Go on Thursday afternoon, eat lunch with the boys, and then head out with the band and volunteers from Inspiration Corporation to hand out burritos to people who are impoverished or currently homeless.

If you're interested in participating, email info at okgo.net with Burrito Project as the subject. Only do this if:

a) You're available Thursday from noon to 3pm
b) You can bring 12 homemade burritos (we'll provide the recipe) to hand out and to eat with the band.

If you have any questions, email them to info at okgo.net. Pete will get back to you soon.

OK Go is in Anaheim Tonight!
Remember how we had to postpone the Anaheim show a couple of weeks ago? That was sucky, huh? Well, forget it ever happened: The boys are playing the House of Blues in Anaheim tonight. If you're anywhere nearby, you should head over right this minute.

San Diego & Anaheim: We're So Sorry.
Tonight's show in San Diego and tomorrow's show in Anaheim have been postponed. We're super sorry. Damian got sick this week and his doctor has ordered him not to sing for the next 48 hours. The new dates are below. We promise we'll try to convince Tim to give out free hugs before, after, and during the shows, when they do end up coming together.

Re-scheduled dates:

San Diego - May 9th

Anaheim - April 10th

-OK Go

Chicago Show Just Added. Other Shows Continuing As Planned.
The boys have just added a special and quite lovely show to their schedule. It's at the world famous Double Door (it's true--two doors!) on April 23rd. The show is 21+ only, I'm sorry to say. But don't let that get in the way of your buying tickets here .

I Love You, Man
Those four little words are what Tim says to Damian every time he starts the car or gets on an airplane, you know, just in case. It's also the title of a movie the boys are in, which comes out March 20th. They make a cameo appearance as a wedding band called "Tastes Like Chicken." Terrible, huh? I guess the producers had to come up with a band name so terrible that nobody else would use it. Oooops. Watch the trailer at iloveyouman.com.
