■ Some sorely needed levity: In this public-service announcement for HeadCount’s “Make Your Vote Count” campaign, the Postal Service’s Ben Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello and Jenny Lewis sit in while “Dave from Subpop” (played by actor Jon Daly) conducts interviews for an expanded version of the band. The candidates: Anne Hathaway, Kenny G, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Guns N’ Roses’ Slash and Duff McKagan, Rick Springfield, Huey Lewis, Frank Schøttendt (aka Tim Robinson), Bret McKenzie (of Flight of the Conchords), IRL Rosie, Vanessa Bayer, Susanna Hoffs, Patton Oswalt, Aparna Nancherla, Caroline Polachek, Michelle Zauner (of Japanese Breakfast), Tunde Adebimpe (of TV on the Radio), Ishmael Butler (of Shabazz Palaces), Denny Rock (aka Jon Wurster), Big Freedia, J Mascis, Preservation Hall Jazz Band’s Ben Jaffe, Walter Harris and Ronnell Johnson, Kim Thayil and Joe Wong. Director Tom Scharpling directed, as he did with these hilarious 2013 “tryouts” that featured Daly and some of the same cast.
