Tim and Eric prepping for tour...(early '09)
Time and Eric

"Adult Swim Summer at Santos", a six-part series of free live shows at Santos Party House in NYC, kicks off tonight, June 11th. The show features the man connected to both the network and the club: Andrew W.K., Adult Swim's soon-to-be-reality-show-host and part owner, respectively. He'll be joined by friends and labelmates (and in one case, spouse) -- Cherie Lily, plus Aleister X, Bad Brilliance & Natalie Portman's Shaved Head open the show.

Each of the bi-weekly events at Santos will be curated by an Adult Swim writer/producer/star. So far, acts on the bill include Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim (of Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), Aqua Teen co-creator Dave Willis, Delocated!'s Jon Glaser, musical acts Cheeseburger and A.C. Newman, and more.

Full lineup and more details below...

Current line-up for Adult Swim Presents Summer at Santos Series*:

June 11 - Andrew W.K. Opening sets by: Cherie Lily, Aleister X, Bad Brilliance & Natalie Portman's Shaved Head

More info
Crafted specifically for Adult Swim fans, the Adult Swim Presents Summer at Santos Series includes six live shows featuring a different musical and comedy performance each time. To host and create these shows, Adult Swim tapped into the best resource they know - their talent. Talent comprised of show creators and stars of Adult Swim series like Delocated, Metalocalypse, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! were called on to curate their own slices of comedy and music heaven that will feature an array of unique talent chosen by each of them.

All six shows of Adult Swim Presents Summer at Santos Series will occur every other Thursday night, beginning on June 11, at the Santos Party House located at 96 Lafayette St. in New York City. Doors open at 7 p.m.; the show starts at 7:30 p.m. All shows are free and open to the public, ages 18 and up.

Adult Swim first teamed up with the acclaimed Santos Party House earlier this year and treated fans to a live show hosted by Delocated! star and creator Jon Glaser, with music from Andrew W.K. and Cheeseburger. The response was huge, so Adult Swim and Santos Party House are working together again to give fans more of what they want all summer long.

How crazy crowded do free shows get there? I've never been to Santos & on their website I see there's a link to make a reservation... is that what one should do for one of these shows?

i imagine tim & eric will be really crowded, considering they sold out a paid show at the nokia theatre recently.

Anything free in NYC is always a waste of time. Bryant Park Movies, SummerStage, Shakespeare in the Park etc.

If they'd just go ahead and charge $3, then the people who actually want to enjoy the event would be able to attend. Otherwise, it's always a bunch of chubby weirdo welfare-mooch types who stand in line starting at 8 a.m. and just want to attend anything, literally anything, as long as it's free.

[Too long, didn't read: NYC sucks.]

I've seen some pretty amazing free shows at both Summerstage and Prospect Park.

"Featuring a night of local New York bands"

Wow, really?!? Not at Santos, they never get "local new york bands" to play.

Let me guess the line up...
These Are Powers
Golden Triangle
(or just throw a dart at the Northside Festival line-up)

are you insinuating that those bands are not really from new york? or that they play at santos all the time? or that they're the type of bands who play at santos all the time?

cuz all of those things are untrue

he didnt insinuate any of that. you inferred all the wrong things because you have the pea-brain of a dinosaur but without the mass where it counts.

Has anyone been to any of these shows? Will Tim & Eric actually be performing, or should I just expect a night of music?

Posted by Anonymous | July 28, 2009 3:19 PM

So, are these things packed???

Is Jason and The Scorchers REALLY playing tonight?

Posted by Freepster | August 6, 2009 1:35 PM

12:49 had that half right. I am on welfare, I am a weirdo. But I'm not chubby and I won't be standing in line at 8am. I don't think I'll even be awake at 8am.

Thanks people for not commenting on the actual shows. Why would I ever expect to find reviews from people who hitherto checked out shows 1-5 for a 6-part, bi-weekly series? I know for next time to look in L Magazine or Timeout.

**GASPITY GASP I WAS THERE** I stayed for one band (I had to make "curfew" in a weird way) but it was satisfactory. Chinese Stars was something else (the band I saw). The frontman may be autistic but, hey, everyone deserves a chance. The bass shook articles of clothing on me (a first) and the songs were danceable (incomprehensible but danceable) and pretty fun. The people who were really into dancing could not dance at all. The keyboardist was aloof and it looked at those he was really pissed off at the autistic frontman but he was the most fuckable. And I got beer on my shirt without even drinking....CRAYZAY!
