Takka Takka drunk on Newcastle
David Bruno (who is also DJing Saturday night at Love) will start playing music in the main-stage room at Pianos at 7pm today (MARCH 31, 2008). Bottles of Newcastle will be given away from 7-8 from the new little bar they put inside that room. Comedy starts at 8. Then Bell. Then Takka Takka AND ANOTHER HOUR OF OPEN BAR from 10-11 (while Takka is playing - this will be an experiment)....same type of alcohol, same little bar that is in the show room. Drink as many as you can before John Vanderslice (and Annie Clark) takes the stage at 11 (then keep drinking if you want, but you have to pay for it). Oh yeah, $3.00 Svedka lemon drops all night. See you there.

We had our first ever Brooklynvegan and Klaus Kinski present Rock n' Rofl at Pianos on Thursday February 28th, 2008. Aside from the noise coming in from the bar everytime someone opened the door and the lack of chairs for the comedy, I thought the show went really well. An ill (literally, as in he had the flu) Peasant started off the show with some surprisingly powerful folk music.
Comedians Joe Mande, Dave Hill, Pete Holmes, Kristen Schaal, Leo Allen, and host Bobby Tisdale were really incredible. They brought such a great variety of videos and comedic material to the table. This was my first ever comedy showcase I felt honored to have such amazing talent on the bill, and especially to be playing host to host Bobby Tisdale who had just hosted his very last Invite Them Up at Rififi only one night earlier. It was a bummer Kurt Braunohler couldn't make it last minute (because a wizard turned him into a llama), but Kristen did a great job handling it on her own, and the world premiere showing of the new New Pornographers video that they both star in was an extra special treat.
