Lucero at Brooklyn Bowl in 2011 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Earlier this month, we posted a pretty eccentric year-end list from Todd Beene of Lucero and we've since received an even more eccentric list from the band's drummer Roy Berry. He called it his "top whatever list for two thousand twelve." It doesn't have one album on it and some of the items couldn't be farther from "music-related." But I don't wanna say any more about it because you should just check it out for yourself. The whole thing is below.
As mentioned several times (like in our recently posted New Year's Eve guide), Lucero are going on a short four-night tour to ring in the new year, three dates of which happen in the NYC area. First, they'll play Brooklyn Bowl on December 28 with Nude Beach and December 29 with Hollis Brown. Tickets for night 1, night 2, or both are still available. Then after that, they'll play New Year's Eve at Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ with The Hold Steady. Tickets for that show are still available.

Saturday was the biggest day for the 2011 Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival which started with just one show at the Bell House on Thursday, and continued with one show each at the Bell House and Union Hall on Friday. Saturday looked like this:
6 PM @ Bell House: The Archer Variety Hour (and Panel)The first show at Union Hall featured Ron Funches, Tom Allen, Craig Baldo, Jena Friedman, Damien Lemon and Greg Johnson. The next was with Rick Jenkins, Ken Reid, Rick Canavan, Erin Judge, Matt D, Mehran Khaghani, Myq Kaplan, and Lamont Price.
9 PM @ Bell House: The Talent Show Presents: The Drunk Show
6:30 PM @ Union Hall: An Evening Of Very Likable Comedians
8:30 PM @ Union Hall: The Rick Jenkins Comedy Studio Showcase
The first show at the Bell House was moderated by Eugene and had Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Amber Nash, Lucky Yates and executive producer Matt Thompson. That was preceded by a talent show involving the Archer cast. Miss Whitney says, "You guys. The Archer Variety Hour at the Bell House earlier tonight was pretty fucking fantastic... enjoy H. Jon Benjamin's performance of "Non-Dueling Banjos." (video below)" The late show was the 'Drunk Show' hosted by Kevin Townley and Elna Baker featuring John Hodgman, Ira Glass, Rachel Maddow, Eugene Mirman, Jodi Lennon, Leo Allen, Dan St. Germain and Ptolemy Slocum.
The 'Drunk Show' kicked off with Rachel Maddow being interviewed by Hodgman while she made several cocktails from the Savoy Cocktail Book. The show had the participants drinking, arm wrestling "wheelchair style", and ended with a karaoke sing along to "Do They Know Its Christmas."
