As the old saying goes, June is for laughter. (*Not an actual saying.) You can laugh and beat the heat this June when uber-talented Rob Delaney has a four-night run at the AC-enabled Caroline's in Times Square from 6/6 - 6/9. Tickets are on sale now. It may seem weird to talk about air conditioning in January but when we link back to this post in June, it'll all make sense?
Check out some of Rob's stand-up and all upcoming tour dates below...
Lower Dens @ Chicago's the Riv, 10/1/2012 (more by Grant McAllister)
Baltimore's Lower Dens went into new, motorik directions on their second album, Nootropics so it makes sense that tracks from the record might work well in the remix world. Hence, the Nootropics Remixed EP which takes three cuts off the album and puts them into the hands of Trentemøller, Cex, and Steve Moore. You can stream Trentemøller's excellent recrafting of Nootropics standout cut "Brains" below. You can buy it directly from Ribbon Music, and if you buy any Lower Dens title, you'll get Nootropics Remixed for free.
Meanwhile, Lower Dens shared with us their picks for Best of 2012. All four current members contributed lists and none of them were straight LP lists, mixing media with inclusions for live shows, books, food, film and ephemera. Check them out below, along with that "Brains" remix.
The NY Comedy Festival is underway, and includes a show by Slayer and voting fan Rob Delaney at NYU on Saturday (11/10). It now also includes a 2nd Rob Delaney show on the same day in the same venue but later. 100% of proceeds go to Sandy Relief. On Sale now.
Before this show was added, Rob also posted this letter about the early show:
On Saturday I'm doing a show at NYU's Skirball Center. It's sold out, but if you are attending, may I ask you to please bring your checkbook and be prepared to write a check to The American Red Cross in Greater New York? I will be donating 100% of the money I'm making from the show, so if you bring a check too it will be like we're in a cozy little club together. Just give me or one of my volunteers your check after the show and then I'll bring it to the Red Cross in my leather helicopter.
If you aren't going to the show, but would like to donate, you can do so online here:
"Whoever said sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, is a fucking idiot. Not only that, it stops me killing people" - Ricky Gervais last night at NYCF (via @newyorkcomedyfest)
John Hodgman and Ricky Gervais @ NYCF 11/07/2012 (via @yarp4cornetto)
The New York Comedy Festival got underway last night with Ricky Gervais shooting the breeze with John Hodgman at Town Hall. The fest keeps the laughs going all weekend.Tonight's (11/8) big event is the "Stand Up for Heroes" benefit for the Bob Woodruff Foundation at Beacon Theatre with Mike Birbiglia, Ricky Gervais, Patton Oswalt, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart, Robin Williams, John Maher and Roger Waters. Would you be surprised to learn that it's sold out? Well it is, and was also really expensive, but the good news is you can watch it online for free at 8pm EST!
Other shows tonight include Artie Lange at Town Hall, and Shawn and Marlon Wayans at Carolines (and you can still get tickets to those shows).
Other events this weekend include Patton Oswalt at Town Hall and Aziz Ansari at The Apollo on Friday (11/9), not to mention the Ben Stiller Show reunion at the Paley Center; Jim Gaffigan at The Apollo, Rob Delaney at NYU Skirball Center and Kevin Hart at MSG on Saturday (11/10); and Robin Williams in conversation with David Steinberg at 92nd St. Y on Sunday (11/11). There are lots of other shows happening as well, and full schedule and tickets are at the NYCF2012 website.
Also part of the NYCF is Hannibal Buress at Santos on Saturday (11/10) with DJ support from Prince Paul and Mike Lawrence. Tickets are still available. Hannibal is also celebrating the 3rd anniversary of his Sunday night comedy show at Knitting Factory in Brooklyn with a special show this week (11/11) in the main KF performance space (his shows are usually in the bar). Prince Paul will also be DJing this, plus "special guests." While Hannibal's shows there are usually free, this is a ticketed one ("We need the money to buy all of the party soup" - Hannibal). We're guessing it will be well worth it.
Oh, and if you're going to Knitting Factory Sunday, we also have a very good reason you should get there a few hours early.

Jack White/The Roots
The one galvanizing main-stage performance at the Sasquatch festival this year was Jack White's weapons-grade electric guitar soloing on Saturday. Otherwise, it was by the book in the best possible sense. Thousands of people gathered peacefully and everything was on schedule.The Sasquatch Music Festival happened Memorial Day Weekend in Gorge, WA and Day 2 (Saturday, May 26) insanely packed with talent, featuring sets from Jack White, The Roots, tUnE-yArDs, Purity Ring and lots, lots more. It was so overstuffed, we're breaking Saturday's pictures into two parts. See more pics of Jack White and The Roots' Sasquatch set, plus other artists below, with more to come. Check out Day 1 photos HERE.
The festival, which ended Monday with a performance by Beck, featured dozens of live rock, rap, electronic music and comedy acts packing five stages for four days over the sunny Memorial Day weekend...
...Oakland's Tune-Yards mesmerized at the Bigfoot Stage Saturday. Leader Merrill Garbus faced the full yellow sun and belted out powerful melodies in her alto voice that seemed beamed in from African radio. She used looping pedals to blend the vocals with drums and modified ukulele, which she also played live. But her bassist and jazz horn players sent the music through the roof, chipping in on junkyard percussion -- dented pieces of metal hit with drum sticks. [Seattle Times]

"If you didn't already know, yes I got to see @robdelaney this weekend and of course I unnecessarily touched him" - Jackie Austin
Rob Delaney is blowing. the. fuck. up. He has two shows at Bowery on May 11th (early and late); both sold out. He has two shows on May 12th at MHOW. An early show (sold out) and a late show which goes on sale Friday March 9th at noon (which I can say with complete confidence will sell out quickly as well).
I've seen Rob's stand-up many times over the years, but his popularity seems to have hit puberty and gotten very well-endowed almost overnight. His name is now synonymous with Twitter, and though I am super fucking stoked for his success, I am uncomfortable with the fact that owes much of his success to something as stupid as Twitter. I am so glad his NYC shows are selling out so fast, because people really should see the man behind the tweets. But don't think he'll be up there spitting out 140 character one-liners people. The guy's a phenomenal stand up. Yo gone luv it. Dude rulz. Check out a NSFW photo of him below.
After selling out the first two NYC shows on his upcoming tour, LA comedian Rob Delaney has added a third NYC show happening one day after his early/late shows at Bowery Ballroom (5/11). The new show happens in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 12. Tickets are on AmEx presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday (2/24) at noon. Like the other two shows, "A limited amount of seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis when doors open at 8:00pm."
Updated dates below...
After quickly selling out his May 11th Bowery Ballroom show, L.A. comedian Rob Delaney, has added a second show happening the same night. The first (sold out) one is at 9 p.m., and the second is at 11 p.m. Tickets for the new show go on sale Friday at noon, and note: "Limited seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis when doors open at 11pm."
Rob Delaney is also playing Sasquatch this year.
Daniel Tosh of Comedy Central's Tosh.0 has announced a comedy tour. That tour hits NYC for two shows at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on April 13 (early & late). Tickets for those shows go on sale at 10am. We also have a pair of tickets you can win! Details below.
LA Comedian Rob Delaney, who is part of the just-announced Sasquatch Festival lineup, will headline Bowery Ballroom on May 11th. Tickets, on AmEx presale now, go on general sale at noon. More dates are listed below.

All contest details and Tosh dates are listed below...
"Following last year's 10th anniversary, which crushed previous attendance records and set a new mark for the speed with which tickets sold out, the Sasquatch! Music Festival unveils its 2012 lineup which once again features 4 days of music. The festival, hailed as "a model of well-paced programming...in a four-day schedule as efficient and natural feeling as an expertly built algorithm" by NPR Music while Wired notes, "leave the landscape out of it and Sasquatch! has a lineup to kill for," runs May 25-28 (Memorial Day Weekend) at The Gorge, the internationally acclaimed concert venue carved in the basalt cliffs high above the Columbia River Gorge in Quincy, WA."The Sasquatch! Music Festival takes place, as usual, at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington over Memorial Day weekend (May 25-28). And this year's lineup is:
