Lyynks Music: CENTER STAGE: DESCENDING INTO MADNESS WITH WE ARE SCIENTISTS

“We Are Scientists have a reputation for dropping hilarious videos that take our breath away, and in person they didn’t disappoint. Seriousness was not part of the agenda as we talked about a random assortment of topics ranging from Destro’s metal head to celebrities that are (allegedly) secretly bald.”
