[use the force] Rebel Alliance falls on hard times, busks to Doomstar on UK sidewalks

It's an age-old story -- a Galactic Empire crumbles, and so soon does the economy of a universe. I mean, it was great and everything that the Rebel Alliance blew up the second Death Star (big ups to iCarly's biological father, Nien Nunb), but after all that action, how does a Jedi go back to being just a regular ol' dude trying to get by? And how does he or she pay those bills? We all be the droids N-Star's looking for, amirite?!

Well, one way to pass the time and collect some much-needed druggats, cronos, and Republic Dataries is to busk for change and entertain passerby on the streets of England. "Star Wars Busking!" is the latest short clip from British indie filmmaker Toby Dale, and while we think we get what's going here (who the fuck knows?), what's truly important is that the jam playing during all the outdoor fun is "Handsome Man" by Boston's own garage rock hurricane, DOOMSTAR!

As an added bonus, we also get a taste of "Rainbow Bloodsucker," perhaps the trio's finest musical moment, right at the end during the "Click A Video" screen.   

Well done, dudes. Catch Doomstar! this weekend at Ringer Park during Allston DIY Fest. Bring change.
