Boy oh boy do we have a spectacular show to tell you about! TONIGHT Bruar Falls will play host to some of our favorite bands working NYC right now.
Things will kick off PROMPTLY at 8:15 with Yvette— a new york duo who might just be the best american noise outfit since HEALTH. Look into it. Ezra Buchla— ex Mae Shi and Gowns member– will follow and, trust us, this is some real raw atmospheric emotional stuff. Brooklyn’s finest, Dinowalrus will also play– they will provide the gorgeous “bleep bloops” and new wave bass-line to melt your face and get your body moving. And the cherry a top this evening will be none other than 4AD’s own minimalist folk- pop darling Anni Rossi— get to know her for more than just that kick ass cover of “Rude Boy” that she did earlier this year…you’ll probably fall in love, don’t say we didn’t warn you.
REMEMBER Bruar Falls is working with that curfew so be sure to get there ON TIME and try not to wake mom and dad when you drunkenly crawl through your window.
Last night’s sold out 10th Anniversary celebration for the cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer was a fan’s wet hot American dream come true. Hosted by Stella (David Wain, Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black) who also starred in, wrote and directed the movie, the night included archived video audition footage, a sweater fondling contest and appearances from original cast members.
Music Hall of Williamsburg was filled was fans quoting movie lines in unison and singing along to the film’s soundtrack, which was played live by Joe McGinty and the Loser’s Lounge.
The films stars came out to reminisce about the movie and reenact some of their popular scenes from the film to wild crowd reactions. Among those who made an appearance were Marguerite Moreau (Katie), Jeanene Garofolo (Beth), Zak Orth (J.J.), Jake Fogelnest (Silas), A.D. Miles (Gary), Gideon Jacobs (Aaron), Gabriel Millman (Cape Boy), Judah Freelander (Ron von Kleinenstein), Ken Marino (Victor Kulack), Marisa Ryan (Abby Bernstein), and of course the renown, Can of Vegetables voiced by Jon Benjamin.
Also making cameos on prerecorded video shorts were Nina Hellman (Nancy), Joe Lo Truglio (Neil), Amy Poehler(Susie) and Paul Rudd (Andy).
Check out some of the night’s highlights below including an intro from Arty “The Beekeeper” Solomon’s (voiced by Samm Levine) opening address, a performance by Alan Shemper (Michael Showalter) and Victor (Ken Marino) singing “Danny’s Song.”
