The Onion's Annual Obligatory Party
Saturday, December 16, 2006 - 8:00pm
@ Union Hall (702 Union St. at 5th Ave.), Park Slope, Brooklyn
"We love fake news. First the good people at The Daily Show throw a concert/party and give all of the proceeds to 826NYC, and now, exactly one month later the good people at The Onion are throwing a concert/party and giving all of the proceeds to 826NYC. The Onion's Annual Obligatory Pary is a holiday blow-out featuring performances by Sloan, David Cross, Whitest Kids 'U Know, Jessica Rose & The Hi-Life, and Found Footage Festival's Holiday Collection. We hear there will also be DJs, raffles, food and drinks—all for a mere $15 requested donation. Again, the proceeds come to support our programs." [826NYC] (thx Klaus)
UPDATE: Per the Onion, this is a private event. THE RSVP is now closed, sorry.

THE SHORTBUS PREMIERE PARTY, NYC | SEPT 26, 2006 (MORE)
If you didn't know already, Hedwig's John Cameron Michell has a new unrated movie out called Shortbus. The above picture was from the premiere party at Angel Oresanz in NYC on September 26th. Tricia Romano was there.
David Cross and Jon Benjamin have a new show on Comedy Central. It's called Freak Show. The NY Times talked about it. David Cross also stars in the VICE Guide to Travel which is playing at CMJ this year.
Matmos last performed in NYC at a benefit with Antony and CocoRosie. Antony and CocoRosie performed at last year's Tokion Creativity Conference. Matmos isn't performing at this year's conference, but they will be "will be presenting with Christian Marclay and Cory Arcangel on the Lost+Found panel about using found materials in art" on Saturday (10/14). Other late additions to this weekend's schedule include David Cross and John Cameron Mitchell.
"The Benson Interruption - No, it's not the latest Robert Ludlum novel, it's a show where comedian Doug Benson (The Marijuana-logues, VH1's Best Week Ever) invites his fancy, big-name, professional stand-up pals to the stage, but then interrupts whenever he feels like it. Recommended by Time Out New York, it's a bouillabaisse of awkwardness and fun!" [@ UCB NYC - Oct 23, 2006] (thx Klaus)
The William Shatner roast on Comedy Central wasn't as good as the Pamela Anderson one, but anyway here's a clip starring Comedians of Comedy's Patton Oswalt and Brian Posehn along with Andy Dick and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leah)....
Updates to the Comedians of Comedy tour below...
David Cross and Demetri Martin were the special guests last night at Aziz Ansari's weekly (when he's in town) Monday night "Crash Test" show at the UCB Theatre (April, 3, 2006). The following set of pictures closely documents the transition from David Cross' stand-up set back to host Aziz Ansari. Then came the part where Aziz did some more comedy before introducing Demetri Martin to the stage.
Aziz said he's pretty sure next week should also have another very special guest.

DAVID CROSS IN THE NEW "STROKE" VIDEO
The song is called Juicebox, and it's also now officially available as an MP3.
Last night I saw Kimya Dawson perform in the basement (that's where they have the shows) of Scenic in NYC. I noticed David Cross hanging out at the bar upstairs as I was exiting (pretty positive he was not there to see Kimya). Today I came across the above picture, taken by the soon-to-be-famous Mark the Cobra Snake, of David Cross bartending the very same bar a week-or-two earlier at the Shout Out Louds afterparty. And yes, this is the same club he DJ'd not long ago during the Brian Jonestown Massacre afterparty.
Did anyone see David Cross DJ @ Scenic Saturday night?
"Everyone's favorite Canadian table napkin, Nardwuar the Human Serviette, takes on David Cross in the long form. This interview is over forty minutes long, with lots of interesting facts and near breakdowns. Download, and hilarity will ensue..."
"Last weekend, Nardwuar The Human Serviette and David Cross joined the New Pornographers for the making of their latest video, "Use It," which you'll be seeing on this site (and hopefully your TV set) before long."
Gothamist received this note today:
So in a bit of bad news, it appears the boys and I are not going to get the bar. There are a couple of factors that led to this, but simply put; A group of well-meaning but naive friends who get some money together to buy a bar and turn it into a performance space is no match for a group of well-established and experienced business's with deep pockets. There was nothing underhanded or anything like that, there was just no way we could match the other offer without enormous risk to us so that be that. We're all very disappointed, but we will regroup and keep on looking until we are able to find something somewhere. As God is my witness, you will never go hungry again!
David Cross, et all.
"Funnyman David Cross is getting into the nightclub business. The "Arrested Development" star is buying into Eleven, on Orchard Street, with Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. and two other pals. Cross' girlfriend, makeup artist Sara Egan, will manage the rock venue, which will be renamed and revamped. Eleven's current owner, Simon Ribok, will remain on board, as will GBH promoter Alejandro Torio, who owns a small percentage of the club. The three-level space has a reputation as a late-night hangout for Lower East Side bands like Interpol, Secret Machines and groupies who dig them."
"Cross, who insists his entire collection of tunes has been gathered via infomercially-vended compilations, deftly parried further questioning about what he plans to play. However, he was more than willing to explain the captivating story of how, after a multifaceted comedy career that's inspired a cult-like following, he finds himself taking on the role of nightclub DJ. "[The promoter] just approached me about it," he said casually. "It sounded like fun. I wouldn't do anything if it wasn't fun."" [chicago innerview]
