'Pot Kettle Black,' Tilly & the WallLast night's highly anticipated, two-hour premiere of the new '90210' was punctuated by many a musical moment. But the most significant one arrived when Omaha indie poppers Tilly & the Wall performed 'Pot Kettle Black,' the first single off this year's 'o,' at Naomi's (AnnaLyne McCord) sweet sixteen party. So we hooked up with the group's resident tapdancer (yes!), Jamie Pressnal, to talk about the unlikely collaboration and hear about her favorite 'Beverly Hills, 90210' episode ever.
How did this whole thing come about?
The producers contacted our label and wanted to fly us in for a performance. We were already on tour and about to be in L.A., so we ended up filming just a few days later. It was complete crazy scheduling for a few days, but so awesome and totally worth it.
Are you/were you a fan of the show?
Umm, funny you should ask. Yes! I would have '90210' parties at my house every week. It was honestly a dream of mine to play the Peach Pit, so when we got the call I could not believe it -- I feel like my life has come full circle. [Laughs]
What's your favorite memory from the original 'Beverly Hills, 90210'?
One of the funniest episodes was when Dylan smoked crack and drove off a cliff. It honestly still makes me chuckle.
Who was your favorite character?
Ummm ... Donna. Or should I say "the twins"?
In your opinion, what is the best TV teen drama ever?
'90210' -- And I'm not just saying that!
Have you seen the first episiode of the new series?
Not yet. But I'm flipping out about seeing it.
What's your response to people who say that doing this stuff is "selling out"?
We get to experience so many amazing things being in an indie band. Riches and wealth are not one of them. I have a mortgage, bills and really expensive private health insurance. Throw us a bone here people.
