Delocated

Jon Glaser's Adult Swim series Delocated, a fake reality show about a guy in the Witness Protection Program, was one of the strangest, funniest shows of the last 10 years. (I thought so at least.) Last week the show sailed off into the sunset with a one-off series finale, but Jon will take one more trip to the bone zone, live on stage in NYC. The "The Delocated Witness Protection Program Variety Show" happens at Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 29 and features castmembers Eugene Mirman, Todd Barry, Angie Pontani, Steve Cirbus and Janeane Garofalo will be be on hand, as will a surprise music guest. What exactly will go down is anyone's guess, but we can only hope there will be a potato skins bar.

Tickets for this extravaganza go on sale on Wednesday (3/13) at noon. Some choice Delocated clips below...

Fergus & Geronimo at BV-SXSW in March (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Fergus & Geronimo

Happy New Year's Eve Eve! We've already given you a list of concerts and parties happening tomorrow and followed that with even more things to do. Some are already sold out (like 285 Kent and Glasslands). Some still have tickets (like Deer Tick). Here we are yet again with some more options.

Fergus & Geronimo are playing The Gutter (12/31) in Brooklyn with NT, My Teenage Stride, and The City Streets. Fergus will reportedly be "headlining at midnight" and "debuting tons of songs from their FUNKY new album." Brooklyn's NT are working on a new record and they've got a new song from it up for free download on bandcamp called "Reflection."

Superhuman Happiness are DJing at Union Pool (12/31) with DJ Partypants and visuals by BAMiAM.tv. As Superhuman Happiness point out on facebook, this is a DJ set and will be a very different show than their live set at Cake Shop TONIGHT (12/30). Tonight's post-Phish late show is a Dog Gone Blog presented show that features special guest Colin Stetson and DJ sets by Dog Gone Blog, Unicorn Pudding, and like tomorrow's Union Pool show, visuals by BAMiAM.tv.
