Fred Armisen: MEN at Work

February 16, 2012 9:57 AM video

If there’s a band I really like, I’ll go to just about any venue in the city. One band I’ve seen recently is MEN. Their music could be described as electropunk but it’s very vocally driven by lead singer JD Samson. As part of another band Le Tigre and on tours with singer Peaches, Samson has become pretty big in the electro music world. MEN’s live shows are known to have a lot of surprises. They often incorporate video projections and backup dancers and have played interesting venues like the New Museum.

WATCH VIDEO: The music video for MEN’s song “Off Our Backs.”

Fred Armisen is the co-creator, co-writer and co-star of “Portlandia.” He is also in his tenth season as a cast member of “Saturday Night Live.” Armisen began his career as a musician in the Chicago-based post-punk band Trenchmouth and played with the Blue Man Group.
