Hot Tub with Guest Host Adam Newman
Hot Tub is a weekly evening of comedy, music, and other weird shit. Come see the best and the newest comedians in the city! This edition will be hosted by the great Adam Newman!
Ted Leo came to indie fame in the late-'80s New York hardcore scene by playing with Citizen's Arrest and Animal Crackers. He then moved to Washington, D.C. where he founded Chisel, a mod/punk outfit that you should already know about. When they disbanded, Ted headed up north to New York City and started playing as Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and eventually signed with Matador Records. He released his first record with them, The Brutalist Bricks, in 2010.
John Hodgman is John Hodgman. His most recent book, THAT IS ALL, is his final book of COMPLETE WORLD KNOWLEDGE, covering such subjects as wine, sports, and the end of the world. Get your very own copy here: http://areasofmyexpertise.com/buy
