Indie Artist Lookalikes: Part Two

by That Guy on May 2, 2008

About a year ago, I wrote a post about indie artists who resembled other famous people. Well I’ve marinated on it for another year, and come up with some more for your viewing pleasure.

Augie March Donal Logue

Glenn Richards from Augie March and Donal Logue from some TV stuff You’ve all seen Donal Logue somewhere but you can’t remember where. I can’t either. It took me a full 35 minutes just to figure out the name of this jergoff. What kind of self-righteous soft stoolface drops the “d” on Donald?
Josh Rouse Matt from Real World

Singer/songwriter Josh Rouse and Matt Simon from the Real World Hawaii Possibly the greatest season of the Real World ever, Matt was overshadowed by Ruthie’s alcoholism and striking resemblance to Tiger Woods. However, Matt was able to make out with the always-topless Kaia toward the end of the season, which earned my admiration. And he always wore that velvet/terry cloth-blend green shirt, which has to count for something. Ass.

Bryce Frida

Guitarist Bryce Dessner from The National and artist Frida Kahlo The resemblance in the area between the eyes and forehead is striking, no?

Bill BerryFrida2
Ex-Drummer Bill Berry from R.E.M. and artist Frida Kahlo I’m on a roll. Bill Berry’s unibrow is slightly more bushy than someone else’s I know. Thankfully, I was able to find an image of Frida Kahlo with a unibrow so bushy, a man with three eyeballs is nesting in it.

adam duritzsideshow bob

Adam Duritz and Sideshow Bob Too easy. Adam Duritz has become a caricature of himself over the last few years. “Round hereĀ¦.yyyyyeeeeaahhhhhhhhhh!”

helio arcade fire

Brandon Summers from The Helio Sequence and Win Butler from The Arcade Fire. Two great bands, two eerily similar jibs. I think I also see a hint of Kevin Spacey in these guys.

brett dennon Velma

Singer/Songwriter Brett Dennen and Velma from Scooby Doo In case you’re wondering, Brett Dennen is in fact a dude. But I did have to look it up just to make sure. You guys owe me big time for this one. I double dare you to find another blog that can deftly segue into Velma. Blow it out your ass, Pitchfork. Sorry for cursing.

Thanks, JF. I apologize for the outburst – my frustration in searching IMDB for a man whose name I did not know got the best of me.

Donal is the Irish equivalent of Donald. His name is as Eire as it comes. He holds both Irish and Canadian citizenship. Just thought you may want to know.

Yeah drinking buddy. Asshole.

I was hoping for a picture of amy winehouse next to a camel, but I guess I’ll have to save that for a future edition.

Oh Christ…no more Amy Whinehouse references! Although, the Indie Rocker-Q-List Celebrity picture sandwich may just be too good to pass up even if it is Joe Camel.

Donal was the greasy haired cabdriver from MTV back in the day.
