Puddles Pity Party, depending on how deeply you want to get into the gimmick, is either the stage title or the mysterious buddy of Big Mike Geier. Based in Atlanta, he first became big on the Web after performing a cover of Lorde’s “Royals” with Postmodern Jukebox that went viral with 17 million views. He’s now a cult figure who’s performed in every single place, together with Paul F. Tompkin’s Varietopia show in Los Angeles (where he also once performed “Space Oddity” with Tompkins, the rapper Busdriver, Maria Bamford, and Kristin Schaal on vocals), the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Sleep No More in New York City, the 2015 Festival Supreme with Jack Black, and more.
If you like this version of Pink Floyd’s classic 1975 song, you may also grab this cover as a single pretty much wherever you discover music—Spotify, iTunes, what have you. Is this your favorite cover Puddles Pity Party’s ever performed? Tell us if you’ve got a unique one, and let’s turn the feedback right into a Puddles Praising Party. Eh? Ehhh? (I’ll see myself out)
