Reggie Watts at loft show 10/7/2012

Reggie Watts made a surprise appearance at a tiny loft show in Williamsburg on Sunday (10/7) bringing a dose of his particular anarchic genius to an otherwise gentle evening of acoustic music from Lady Lamb the BeeKeeper (who played our BV SXSW 2011 showcase), Brandon Terzic (Oud) & Matt Kilmer, Gelsey Bell, Xylos, and cellist Brent Arnold with Alexandra Duvekot.

Like Andrew WK, Watts also spent part of last weekend playing music through the electrified body of David Blaine (who seemed to enjoy it.) There's video of that below, along with more pictures from the loft party.

This looks about as much fun as a night working in a Bangkok sweatshop

Normally Reggie Watts is insufferable. In a closed space like a loft, well let's just say that I don't condone what OJ Simpson did with Nicole and Ron .... but I would understand.

This looks like a "special needs" class reunion.

Reggie Watts is not big enough to be considered a special/surprise guest anywhere.

Higher your expectations.

"Reggie Watts is not big enough to be considered a special/surprise guest anywhere"

Oh, he's big enough. He's just not special or talented enough.

He's so wacky.

Singing bathroom songs?? Is this what trust funders find artsy.

Calling reggie watts a genius is like calling a half-eaten mcdonalds burger on the sidewalk a 5-star meal.

the guy isnt funny or musical. hes only famous for being a non-threatening hipster black man with a big ol fro.

writer, you should be ashamed of yourself. please, quit writing now and move back to your moms house in ohio. right. now.
