Reggie Watts' bravura performance at The Sound of Young America Live! in Portland. I was standing off to the side -- I don't think I've ever seen an audience so wowed by a performer.

Mirah on The Sound of Young America from Jesse Thorn on Vimeo.

All this week, we'll be showcasing video from our live taping at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland. Brian Brewer was kind enough to shoot the show for us, and I'm so happy with how it looks. We'll be podcasting the show in about two weeks, but since it's pledge drive time, I thought we'd share one of these awesome videos with you each day this week.

Above, Mirah performs two songs from her newest release, (a)spera.

Jordan Jesse Go Rider: A FABRICATION

| 1 comment

Look, I've been getting emails about this all day. The so-called "Jordan Jesse Go concert rider" that was leaked this morning by smokinggun.com is completely fabricated. Also: the employee who leaked it from our confidential files has been fired. Plus, I think the demands are perfectly reasonable if you're trying to do professional-quality work. The point is this: we're not spoiled Hollywood types, we don't bathe in Perrier, we use regular old Crystal Geyser just like you. Don't get it twisted.

Here's what's true: the Monsters of Podcasting are coming to the Pacific Northwest, with a show in Seattle on April 23rd and one in Portland on April 26th. Here's what isn't: any demands on the list of demands that strike you as innapropriate or whatever. Again: don't get it twisted.

Note: if you are a venue wishing to book The Monsters of Podcasting, please talk to me about this denial before repeat *before* you set up our green room.

Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland this weekend...

| 0 comments

I've been corresponding on and off with the founder of the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland for a few months. He's a guy with a tremendous passion for comedy and a lot of resourcefulness, and he's put together a remarkable festival that's not to be missed. Many of the best alternative comics on the West Coast, both famous and not famous, will be at the festival, and it'd be tough to go to a show and not see something amazing. And hey... Patton Oswalt is headlining! Past JJGo guests like Chris Fairbanks, Jonah Ray and Bucky Sinister will be performing, alongside heavyweights like the very funny Tig Notaro, Brent Weinbach and Eddie Pepitone.

If you live in Portland, this is an event that is NOT TO BE MISSED. The tickets are on a wristband basis -- and wristbands are only twenty bucks. Be there or be square.
