Dirty Pretty Things at the Fonda: A Challenge

Dirty Pretty Things
The Fonda
August 8, 2006

I’m going to fast forward through all of the “concert review” aspects of this concert review and focus on what I was thinking about for the majority of the Dirty Pretty Things show at the Fonda last week. Yes, this was their first show in America. And yes, they were brilliant and lovely and loud and homoerotic and dirty and pretty and things-y.

But here is what was truly plaguing me throughout their entire show, including during the two Libertine songs in the encore.

Who does Carl Barât look like?

Don’t give me that look.

It’s not unknown that celebrities generally resemble between one and three other celebrities.

For instance:

Chad Smith, the drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Will Ferrell.

See how easy that was? Fun, even.

So I ask you again, dear losanjealous readers:

Who does Carl Barât look like?

Part Jason Schwartzman…

Part Alan Cummings…


Jason Schwartzman Alan Cummings question mark

And what about the other DPTs?

Solve this quandary and “put all the rumo(u)rs to bed”…
