Wyatt Cenac

In a post titled "Starting Mondays in November until Littlefield realizes they've made a huge mistake", Wyatt Cenac, who spent this weekend at Fun Fun Fun Fest, details the plans that will likely drive Gowanus venue Littlefield toward financial and social ruin.

Comedian Wyatt Cenac ("The Daily Show," "King of the Hill") and Producer Marianne Ways ("Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen"), in conjunction with Littlefield, are proud to announce the start of new weekly comedy showcase NIGHT TRAIN WITH WYATT CENAC. Hosted by Brooklyn-based comedy favorite Wyatt Cenac, the show will feature comedy from the best local and international stand up comedians, and will at times feature new and established musicians, local celebrities, and occasional surprises that can only be found in Gowanus.
Night Train begins today (11/5) at Littlefield with special guests Eugene Mirman, Jessi Klein, Jeffrey Joseph and J.R. Havlan, and tickets are still available. Tickets are also on sale for shows through the better portion of 2012, including on 11/12 with Gary Gulman, Jerrod Carmichael, Seaton Smith, Erin Judge "+ more".

Of course all of this reconfirms the end of Kurt and Kristen's weekly Hot Tub Variety Show at Littlefield, which held its last Monday show in October. RIP to Hot Tub, but we're looking forward to Night Train.

Since our last mention, two very special guests have been added to the bill: Craig Finn (The Hold Steady) and John Darnielle (The Mountain Goats). Hopefully you didn't sleep on tickets because the show is now sold out.

Tickets are however on sale now for A Haunted Hot Tub Halloween at Littlefield, also a comedy and music variety show, happening one day later (10/29) with Kristen Schaal, Kurt Braunohler, Wyatt Cenac, Andres du Bouchet, and... John Darnielle, and more.

Tickets are also on sale for Hot Tub on 10/10 and 10/17.

Tickets are also still on sale for the 11/18 Cabinet of Wonders at City Winery with The Blue Fisherman (from Edinburgh, Scotland), Howe Gelb, Myla Goldberg, Ted Leo, Eugene Mirman, Audrey Niffenegger AND "Plus for this Cabinet of Wonders, and this Cabinet of Wonders only, the House Band will be THE KING CHARLES TRIO, comprising: Peter Buck (REM), Jenny Conlee-Drizos, Chris Funk, John Wesley Harding (Appearing as Himself), Scott McCaughey (The Minus Five), John Moen, and Nate Query."

Screaming Females at BV SXSW 2011 (more by Tim Griffin)
Screaming Females

Ted Leo was a special guest at Hot Tub with Kurt and Kristen at Littlefield Monday (6/27). According to Nate Buchik, "Last night, Ted Leo said they were performing Tyranny of Distance in its entirety at the South Street Seaport on July 9." That would be appropriate since the classic album turned 10 years old on June 19, but note that we were also told that Ted said he was "PROBABLY" playing the album. We'll let you know if that changes to "definitely." Hot Tub continues every Monday at Littlefield with different special guest comedians and musicians each week.

Ted's free South Street Seaport show is now being opened by fellow New Jerseyans Screaming Females. They just finished up their tour with Against Me! and Lemuria and only have a few other scattered dates at the moment. One of those dates is The Fest 10 in Gainesville, Florida which Ted is also playing (and which is sold out).

Ted recently taped a series of solo performance videos in "Room 205" for Incase. Watch those, with all tour dates and other videos below...
