VIDEO: Brothers and Sisters... and Aasim

In the days leading up to Saturday's awesome mini-festival-like show at The Mohawk, many of you were wondering Who the hell is Aasim Syed and why the hell is he throwing his birthday party at a music venue? The Onion's A.V. Austin conducted a nice little interview with the man himself to answer these questions and more (read it here). I decided to do further research myself by attending the show. Honestly, I would've been there regardless. This show boasted one of the best all-local lineups of the year. It turns out that in addition to being a local photographer and friends with many awesome bands, Aasim Syed is also an avid karaokeist and rabid heckler (demanding, at one point, that the folk-rockers in Brothers and Sisters play Neil Young's "Cortez the Killer" as well as telling Trail of Dead's Jason Reece not to fuck up as a father). Here's a clip of Aasim singing with Brothers and Sisters at the show. If only we could all celebrate our birthdays like this....
