Festival Supreme

I have got a WICKED soft-spot in my soul for the great Tenacious D. Back in the day when I was still a young pup exploring the world of comedy at large, a friend of mine gave me a VHS tape (recorded in EP mode) that featured David Cross' special The Pride is Back as well as every single episode of the HBO Tenacious D television series. I was familiar with Jack Black from other things, but this series blew my mind apart into about eighteen different piles of pinkish green sludge. To this day (and I have been and will continue to be raked over the coals for this analogy) I think Jack Black is a phenomenal singer who brings to mind someone like the great Mike Patton. Their zeal for the majesty of rock and the hilarious adventures he and the cherubic Kyle Gass got into made the series an instant fave of yours truly.

Over the years, The D has given us great music, great videos, great tours, and great laughs. But now, they are giving us the mother of all gifts: FESTIVAL SUPREME! Curated by (and featuring) Tenacious D, Festival Supreme is a one day comedy/music fest taking place on the Santa Monica Pier in California on Saturday October 19, 2013. This rain-or-shine, nearly seven-hour event features a line-up that is so incredible that I had to read it like 7 times. Attendees will thrill to the comedy and music of Tim and Eric, The Mr. Show Experience(!), The Mighty Boosh, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, Adam Sandler, The Gregory Brothers (aka the Autotune the News guys), Tig Notaro, Hannibal Buress, Eric Idle, Fred Armisen, Princess (Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum), Will Forte, Demetri Martin, Dynasty Handbag, Reggie Watts, Beardyman, Craig Robinson and the Nasty Delicious, Garfunkel & Oates, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Neil Hamburger Band, The Abe Lincoln Story, Nancy and Beth (Megan Mullally and Stephanie Hunt), and, of-fuckin-course, Tenacious D. I've included the list below for those of you who see things better visually as a list.

Pre-sale tickets will be available on Wednesday, June 12 at 10 AM PST (password is SUPREME). Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10am PST on Friday, June 14 at 10 AM PST. General admission tickets are $99 (plus fees), and VIP tickets are $250 (plus fees). VIP tickets include a VIP viewing platform of the main stage, VIP bar, access to golden toilets and special merchandise. Also, sorry kiddos, this is a 21+ event. HA! Grow up.

Preview video and line-up in list form is below.

How did Sandler get on this bill? Wonder if he will do that hysterical funny talking character

You know what sucks? Seeing bands all day in an outdoor setting.

You know what sucks more? Seeing comedy all day in an outdoor setting.

Both those things were made for one place and time only: night and indoors. Festivals are watered down BS moneymakers that rob idiots.

Oh no, if I told them once, I told them 100 times to put Tenacious D first and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog last...

Bad move having Armisen. That's dude is the worst. Well, I guess it would be a good time to hit the beer line.

This actually looks pretty awesome. If it wasn't on the opposite side of the country, I'd definitely go

"All The Food Is Poison" will be fantastic in an outdoor sing-along.

Now that Armisen is done with SNL, do you think there is any chance he just stays out there? I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
