San Diego/Del Mar’s Kaaboo To Have Silicon Valley, Jeff Ross, Janeane Garofalo, Garfunkel and Oates, Puddles Pity Party
It’s becoming an ever more popular trend for big music festivals to have a comedy portion.
The Kaaboo in Del Mar, CA (just north of San Diego) is just doing that with a pretty fantastic, star studded comedy line-up. They’ve even recruited the delightful Taylor Williamson to put together a local comedy showcase.
If you’re in, around, or near Del Mar, you shouldn’t miss this. Get more details and tickets here.
Please Enjoy Paul F. Tompkins, Busdriver, Puddles Pity Party, Kristen Schaal, and Maria Bamford Cover David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”
Really, this performance of Space Oddity at Paul F. Tompkins’ Varietopia nearly 2 years ago is just perfect for today. Equal parts great in execution and fun for the wide range of performers on stage, it’s something you should probably just watch and listen to over and over for awhile.
RIP David Bowie.
