Creator Josh Schwartz told the April 8 issue of Entertainment Weekly that “the ultimate Bait Shop band will be performing.”
He was referring to Death Cab for Cutie.
Seth Cohen, played by Adam Brody, has been a fan of the guitar-driven indie-pop quartet since “The O.C.” began two years ago. Much of the band’s recent popularity has been attributed to mentions on the show.
The Walkmen, The Killers and The Thrills are among the acts that have performed at the show’s fictional Newport Beach, Calif., rock venue.
