Product Review: Karen Kilgariff Live at the Bootleg

image

Ravenesque, moonish, moody, glowing eyes with wolfish glint, a lady in black brandishing wit and guitar pick (corresponding with a guitar that, admittedly, isn’t living up to its potential). Karen Kilgariff is the coolest folk hero of the almost-analogue, post-comedy boom collapse era. She came into prominence in the 1990s, starting out in Sacramento, then San Francisco, then introduced (widely) on the seminal Mr. Show. She’s since matched might with Mary Lynn Rajskub as Girl Guitar Club, wrote for the Ellen DeGeneres Show and twisted on the tips of tastemakers’ tongues.

[Karen Kilgariff, the crown jewel of Petaluma and your favorite comic’s favorite virtuoso, was recently on indietastic Daytrotter. It’s a proprietary music service (and so good that it’s hard to abstain) BUT, they have a free trial which you should use to listen to Karen’s session. Afterwards, you can let the membership die like a baby bird. Aw, poor bird. Karen Kilgariff’s album "Live at the Bootleg" comes out soon, but not soon enough! Check out a sample below.]

New Brent Weinbach Album Out September 4, 2012 via A Special Thing. Click photo to Pre-Order. 

The all-new material on this, Weinbach’s third record, was recorded live this spring at UCB LA and also includes a handful of studio bits, making it just as the title suggests, mostly live. Brent is not your typical stand-up comedian. A recipient of the highly regarded Andy Kaufman Award, which is given out once a year to recognize innovation in stand-up comedy, Brent’s style is brilliantly unique. He weaves in and out of voices, sounds, and uses music, stories and absurd situations to create his hilarious comedy.
