Download or stream it here!
Thursday night, August 21st at 8:00 pm, I will be recording a long set at Tao Comedy Studio, along with my buddy John Fontaine. Bobbie is going to host the show, I'm going to try to do an hour. It's free, free parking in back, and I could really use some people in the audience. Going to be a VERY fun night of comedy.
Over the last, oh, 5 years I guess, the biggest part of my musical diet has been these compilations of funky, psychedelic records from the 60's and 70's from Africa, Latin America, The Caribbean and elsewhere, so I'm dedicating this entire show to that shit. Far out music from Nigeria, Ethiopia, Cuba, Brazil, Colombia, Texas, Sweden and who knows where else. Please forgive me stumbling over so many of the foreign names and titles. Below is the track listing, I also included Amazon links to the featured compilations. Plus, a few minutes of new comedy bits at the beginning.
