For this TSOYA classic we take a look back at a conversation Jesse had with rocker Andrew W.K. in early 2007, when he was just finishing up and releasing "Close Calls with Brick Walls."
Our friends in the NYC sketch group Elephant Larry have an awesome-packed show coming up, and we've got the details straight from the horse's mouth (or in this case, our pal Stefan Lawrence):
Elephant Larry is going to be hosting an awesome show at the venerable Joe's Pub in New York, on Saturday, September 25th, at 11:30PM. We're going to be doing some of our newer sketches, and bringing in such friends as:
ANDREW WK! MaxFunCon's 2010 Person of the Year! He'll be playing some music and also just goofing with us. Man, just can't wait.
JAKE & AMIR! Of CollegeHumor fame. Funny guys who are totally cool despite their massive heady internet celebrity status.
MATT McCARTHY! You may know him as they redheaded bearded dude from the Verizon commercials, but he's an awesome standup and superfunny. He was recently on WTF podcast, so that's gotta be worth something, right?
Plus we got giveaways and games and it's just going to be a fun night. Please come out and have fun with us! There'll also be an afterparty, though we know not where yet. Shall be announced. Get your tickets here: http://bit.ly/brMKm4
And if you're coming, RSVP on our Facebook event so we know to expect and welcome you: http://bit.ly/a45P2s
Ever since Andrew W.K. told us on Jordan Jesse Go! about hanging out at Hansen's songwriting fantasy camp, I have felt that the Hansen brothers are among The Good Ones. This exceedingly pleasant song and its accompanying video, which features both Weird Al Yankovic and an elaborate recreation of one of the best dance numbers in The Blues Brothers (the Ray Charles "Shake Your Tailfeather" scene) is further evidence.
