Naked At Woodie Awards Rehearsal

December 1, 2009 — 0

The best thing about rehearsing for this year's Woodie Awards: Soundcheck for The Dead Weather. Jack White = Pure Genius. (Even though he wouldn't let me film it.) The second best thing about rehearsing for this year's show: The bike messengers Matt & Kim brought. Eight messengers followed Matt & Kim on bicycles from Brooklyn to the Roseland Ballroom. The plan was for Diplo to spin a wicked set, then Matt & Kim and the bike messengers would arrive at Roseland, ditch their bikes, blast onto the stage, and the messengers would undress to become a naked chorus. We are perfectionists, of course, so we just had to rehearse this over and over and over to make sure they were, you know, undressing at the right time and everything.... After their actual performance at the Woodies, Kim (Stolz) caught up with Matt & Kim. Matt got Kim to admit she likes getting naked more than she lets on. Then they talk about the size of Kim's chest... Set your tivo -- Woodies hit MTV this Friday night, December 4th, at 10pm.
