The Dresden Dolls should be familiar to most cosmusic readers. If you don't know them, read my first post about them. Quay is Amanda's friend Mali's band, from NYC. Mali, like Amanda, attended LHS. They used to be known as The Throes, and performed a couple of shows with Dresden Dolls and Molly Zenobia in 2002, in Boston and at The Knitting Factory in NYC. I don't know if they've changed the band along with the name, but last I saw them, they were a keyboard and drums duo with very emotive explosive melodic music. Hmm, sound familiar?
Eugene Mirman is among the weirdest of standup comics. That's saying a lot coming from me, since I frequent The Comedy Studio - but then, so does Eugene, and I've seen him perform there many times. Sometimes he tries something bold and bizarre that just utterly fails, but may still be worth having seen. Other times, he's brilliant. Sometimes I'm just not sure what to make of him but I laugh anyway.
I don't know anything about the cast of "Kindred", but Amanda says the play will be funny - that's a direct quotation. I have seen Angela's film before, at PAN 9. The official synopsis is,
- A Greek grandmother heaps advice on her unappreciative granddaughters among the basil, chickens, and watermelon-eating of her backyard in Athens. The grandma, "yiayia," advises the youngest granddaughter to pursue a stable profession after college, unlike her filmmaker older sister who is in for a "life of suffering."
