Silversun Pickups take on fans at Alt Nation Ping Pong Throwdown

August 6, 2013

Silversun Pickups are really good at making music, but not so good at playing ping pong. The band stopped by the SiriusXM studios for the second Alt Nation ping pong throwdown—a tradition started by ping pong fanatics Muse in April.

Keyboardist Joe Lester and drummer Chris Guanlao took to the table on behalf of the band, but the pair was defeated by two SiriusXM subscribers from upstate New York. When they weren’t playing, Lester and Guanlao joined singer/guitarist Brian Auster and bassist Nikki Monninger on air to talk about their new album and Monninger’s new twin babies.
