TUESDAY: The Jesse Miller Talk Show with Eric AndrΓ©, Johnny Pemberton and VICE COOLER

Fun has never felt so free.

I’m proud to announce a very special Jesse Miller Talk Show. First, it’s FREE (with phone RSVP). Second, it’s at the Comedy Central Stage at the Hudson. Third, and best of all, it’ll feature the musical stylings/thrustings of the one and only VICE COOLER, known for, among other things, his stunning fashion sense, his wonderfully fucked music videos, and boundary-pushing work in tuneage (Kit, Hawnay Troof, Peaches, XBXRX). Also, he might bring dancers. If that’s not enough to convince ya, read LAist’s glowing take on the show.

LA Upcoming: XBXRX tonight at Pehrspace

Coachella prep took its toll on Funny Ha Ha. Getting caught up with posts right now, and realized that this little gem went unmentioned here. If you didn’t attend the festival over the weekend, there’s a chance you might be in the market for a thorough thrashing at the hands of some Bay Area art-punks.
