"Community" might have the most talented cast on network television. First, Donald Glover released his debut rap album Camp -- under the name Childish Gambino -- and now Alison Brie has her own band, The Girls. No wonder their "Glee"-mocking, Christmas musical episode was so good.
On Saturday, the Girls -- made up of Cyrina Fiallo, Julianna Guill, and Brie -- made their New York singing debut at Le Poisson Rouge, opening for bluegrass band Jones Street Station. Apparently, The Girls did a cover of Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend," and it was a crowd-pleasing favorite.
"They cracked jokes in-between surprisingly gorgeous, stripped down Bruce Springsteen covers ('I’m on Fire') and all-out hootenannies to Alabama’s 'Dixieland Delight,'" wrote UPROXX writer Josh Kurp, who recapped the show. "Guill, who appeared on 'Community' as a cheerleader in 'A Fistful of Paintballs,' possessed the strongest voice of the three, while Fiallo (who was also on Community in 'Early 21st Century Romanticism') had the deepest and Brie the most playful and eye-winking."
Here are The Girls, covering Childish Gambino's "These Girls." Does this feel like an alternate timeline to anyone else?
And for fun, here's Alison Brie -- as Annie -- singing "Teach Me How To Understand Christmas" on "Community." Human Beings, what do you think of Alison Brie's new music career? Sound off in the comments.
