The film Wet Hot American Summer came out Summer 2001 and didn't do much at the box office but had cult hit written all over it. A satire of '80s summer camp movies, it was written by David Wain and Michael Showalter of The State and featured most of the rest of that comedy in the cast. It also starred a lot of folks who'd soon be a lot more famous -- Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, and Elizabeth Banks, to name a few -- and featured songs by Shudder to Think's Craig Wedren. You probably know all this.
Director David Wain, and pretty much all of the original cast (including Cooper, Rudd, Pohler and Banks), are going back to camp for an eight-part miniseries, subtitled "First Day at Camp," that will air on Netflix this summer. Also appearing on the new series: Chris Pine, Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, John Slattery, and Jason Schwartzman. And probably more. They just debuted a trailer for the miniseries, which doesn't show much beyond the names of the castmembers, but you can watch it below.
Ted Leo in Aimee Mann's new video
As mentioned, Julie Klauser has some upcoming appearances in NYC, including one at The Bell House on Thursday (9/20) for a screening of The Monkees 1968 film, Head, with former MTV News journalist Kurt Loder, Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield, and Monkees historian Eric Lefcowitz; and another at The Bell House on October 17 for Julie's How Was Your Week podcast with Ted Leo. You'll also have a third chance to see her when she participates in a live recording of the Going Off Track podcast at Union Hall on Saturday (9/22) with Thursday's Geoff Rickly, Texas Is The Reason's Norman Brannon, and blogger Sarah Lewitinn (aka Ultragrrrl). Tickets for all three of those shows are on sale now.
Speaking of Ted Leo, as mentioned, his tour with Aimee Mann hits NYC for three shows next month. Ted is also featured in Aimee's new video for "Labrador," which was directed by Tom Scharpling, and also features his WFMU cohort (and Superchunk drummer) Jon Wurster and actor Jon Hamm. You can watch that below.
Norman Brannon of Texas is the Reason
Speaking of Texas Is The Reason and Thursday, as mentioned, TITR added a show happening at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 10 with ex-Thursday and Rival Schools project States & Kingdoms, one day before their sold out Revelation 25 show at Irving Plaza (10/11).

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's new album, Meat and Bone, is out today and BrooklynVegan is presenting record release party tonight at Bowery Electric.

Bobby Womack and his all-star band (Damon Albarn, Kwes, mems of TVotR) are playing a free show and Q&A at Apple's fancypants SoHo store tonight at 7 PM which is likely to be very, very crowded.
Band of Horses, who release their new album, Mirage Rock, today and play House of Vans tonight, taped a "Live on Letterman" concert last night (9/17). You can stream that entire concert below. You can also stream Mirage Rock in its entirety below.

Kristen Schaal w/ Mad Men's Jon Hamm dressed up as the Big Apple
As mentioned, NYC comedian and actress Kristen Schaal (who plays Symphony Space in NYC tonight, 7/24) is moving to Los Angeles, which is sad or all of us, but probably great for her because she's surely moving on to exciting things. On Thursday (7/19), Kristen joined Eugene Mirman, Mike Birbiglia, Kurt Braunholer, John Oliver, Bobcat Goldthwait and musical guests OK GO at the new Williamsburg Park for a giant and free edition of "Pretty Good Friends" where Kristen's pretty good friends, special guest Jon Hamm included, helped wish her goodbye (You may remember Kristen was in Mad Men's first episode). Jon Hamm appeared as the Big Apple, as you can see in the picture above. More pictues from the whole show (Williamburg Park's 2nd-ever show) (it was supposed to be the third), backstage included, below...

Lady Lamb the Beekeeper
"When you've got a demure woman on the microphone and she can go from a soulful refrain to a heightened howl in the matter of a minute, you know you're in the presence of someone special. I don't know if "special" quite cuts it when it comes to describing Aly Spaltro, aka Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, but she was the definition of captivating at the Brooklyn Vegan showcase at the Swan Dive. I can appreciate a good singer/songwriter, but Lady Lamb's in a class of her own and it was fantastic to see her receive such a warm Austin welcome on her first tour jaunt outside of the Northeast."

We already posted one set of pictures from this Wednesday night show. Here is another. It continues below...
Last week Littlefield wasn't listing any more editions of "Hot Tub" on their schedule, but it is in fact back tonight (2/7). Corn Mo, Brent Sullivan, Adam Cayton-Holland, and Free Love Forum will all join Kurt Braunohler (but maybe not Kristen) at the Brooklyn venue this evening. There's also a lineup listed for 2/14 - "Found Footage Festival, Sandra Bauleo, Surprise Guests, + more!" (and Kristen's name is on that bill).
Speaking of Diddy (not actually), the great Reggie Watts has announced another big headlining show. Having already sold out Manhattan's Highline Ballroom, his next big NYC conquest will be Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 30th. Tickets for the "partially seated show" go on sale Friday at noon.
Reggie will also join Eugene Mirman (and Kumail Nanjiani) for a special Boston edition of "Pretty Good Friends" on March 1st. Meanwhile catch the next edition of Mirman's "Pretty Good Friends" at its usual home of Union Hall in Park Slope this Sunday (2/13), and don't miss the extra-large Brooklyn edition coming to the Bell House on 2/27 in honor of Michael Showalter's new book.
And speaking of The Bell House and new books...
