Travis gets his donk slonked by Slonk Donkerson (who are actually, like, really good), learns a bit about the band’s hometown, and even manages to tell his classic Steve Buscemi story. Sometime during the session, the Brooklyn rock trio also happened to play some sweet tunes. We can’t decide if we want to compare them to a hair metal band or R.E.M., but neither one is really at all appropriate — while also totally appropriate, somehow — so just go ahead and check it out for yourself. Don’t let us tell you how to live your life.
Featured song: “Painted From Memory”
