Yeah, so I'm entirely too tired to persevere. Instead, I think I'll read The Queen of Cool (yay!). One minor mystery solved though. In rewatching the third ep of Veronica Mars from this season, the one with the bizarre "Love Hurts" interlude, I realized the answer to exactly who the singer was would no doubt be on the interweb. The Mars Investigations glossary yielded the following answer:
Karaoke singer who bears an uncanny resemblance to the lead singer of the Dandy Warhols. He rains on Lars's parade and alludes to Veronica's romantic woes by reminding the patrons of the Hut that "
LoVeLove Hurts." His appearance is not short and sweet to the soul in 2.03 Cheatty Cheatty Bang Bang. Played by Courtney Taylor.
So, there you go. Night, night.
