The WB rocks with laughter

In a bid to combine the skills - let's call them that - of the writers of The OC and Gossip Girl with the sound of hipster-approved bands, is launching a comedy-music series set in Los Angeles nightclub.

The bands booked for Rockville, CA do sound great: the Broken West, Lights, Oppenheimer, the Republic Tigers, the Duke Spirit, Eagles of Death Metal, Earlimart, Frightened Rabbit and Lykke Li. Oh, there is also Travis, Kaiser Chiefs and The Kooks, but at least because it's online and in four minute chunks you can always avoid them fairly easily.
