Jackie Siegel in The Queen of Versailles

Movie Recommendations from The AV Club

Our culture gurus over at The AV Club delve into film this week: head writer Nathan Rabin suggests the documentary The Queen of Versailles, which follows a billionaire’s family (and their undoing) in the wake of the economic crisis. Film editor Scott Tobias thinks you should look into two classic films, Body and Soul and Force of Evil, both written by screenwriter Abraham Polonsky.

The Queen of Versailles is now in theaters nationwide. Force of Evil and Body and Soul are both available on Blu-Ray and DVD.

Jeff and Steve McDonald of Redd Kross: Music as Pornography, A Lost Decade, and Punk Rock

What do The Partridge Family, Black Sabbath, and David Bowie all have in common? They all nurtured the music- and pop culture-obsessed minds behind the punk band Redd Kross. Brothers Jeff and Steve McDonald started the band as kids in the late 1970s, growing up in Hawthorne, California near a burgeoning LA punk rock scene.

The band flew mostly under the radar of mainstream culture, but found a devoted fan base and was hugely influential to the punk, grunge, and indie rock scenes. Kurt Cobain regularly included their songs on his mix tapes, and they've been name-checked by Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Stephen Malkmus of Pavement, and even Joe Elliott of Def Leppard.

They've just released their first album in fifteen years, called Researching the Blues.

Comedian Todd Barry on Germaphobia

You think you’ve got issues? Todd Barry might give you a run for your money.

Todd Barry is a NYC-based veteran comedian. You can see him regularly at venues across the country. He collects mundane quotes, misprinted receipts, and subversive Tweets. His new stand up album, Super Crazy, is out now.

Comedian Matt Braunger on Hangover Foods and Growing Up in Portland

Matt Braunger began his career as an actor and stumbled into comedy, but now is known for both -- he’s been a feature performer on MADtv and toured the country with his standup, and he’s scored a recurring role as the genial, dorky neighbor on NBC’s Up All Night.

He talks to us about growing up in Portland and creating his own blend of stand-up comedy -- observational stories, mixed in with fanciful musings. His new stand up album and DVD special, both entitled Shovel Fighter, are out now.

  • Chicago sketch comedy group Schadenfreude has just wrapped up a terrific web series, "The New Bleacher Bums", featuring Kate James and Sandy Marshall as two confused and seemingly entitled Cubs fans named Colleen Henneman and Todd Voorhies. Here's the first episode wherein the show's host, WBEZ's Justin Kaufmann, tries (unsuccessfully) to introduce the series in the style of Ira Glass.
  • Matt Braunger will be taping his new stand-up album for Comedy Central Records at Portland's Alberta Rose Theatre on Friday, October 14. If you're in the area, you can buy tickets here.
  • According to a recent interview in the LA Weekly, Blu & Exile have a record in post-production that is currently called Memoirs. The duo recorded it in '09 and are considering putting it out before the end of the year.
  • Dinosaur Jr. and Henry Rollins are teaming up for a west coast tour in December. The band will be performing Bug in its entirety and Rollins will be interviewing them each night. They'll be hitting Costa Mesa, Solana Beach, LA, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle. I'll post ticket info in "This Week Live" when it becomes available.
  • Das Racist has launched a new and difficult-to-categorize web series called Chillin Island (which is also the name of their show on East Village Radio).
  • Rolling Stone just posted a new video of the song "Cloisonne" from They Might Be Giants' latest album "Join Us". And here it is!

Have a drink with Dave!
