The Independent Spirit Awards has had quite the decidedly more bold (and often times more fun) choices for host over the years.

John Waters, Sarah Silverman, Steve Coogan, Joel McHale, Seth Rogen, and more have taken the Spirit Awards stage as the host and we can’t wait to see what Patton Oswalt (SF90s) will do in joining their ranks.

Here’s comedian Marc Maron (SF90s) performing the Dead song “Brokedown Palace” and telling a story about an experience he had at a Dead show. The segment includes rehearsal footage and a portion of his live performance. This was shot in San Francisco as part of (SF90s) Greg Behrendt’s “Bring The Rock” series. The musicians that play with Marc (collectively known as Electrik Snowflake) are Dave Gibbs, Grant Lee Phillips and Mark Rivers. Directed and edited by Eric S. Goodfield.

Courting Comedy Spotify Playlist: (10/25/2013)

Another week, another digging. Check out this comedy covering the week of 10/19-10/25.

1. Craighlist Rideshare by Brent Weinbach. Cal Grad and early-nought San Francisco urban legend, Brent made his annual return to his home  club—the San Francisco Punch Linelast week. There’s so much to point out as interesting or unique with the Santa Monica playboy, but I’m growing fond of his accurate imitations of the Bay’s many affectations. I ain’t mad at it. 

2. The Crazy by Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits. Last Tuesday I was given access to BJE&CM’s live album recording: a fabulous display performed ever so quaintly for the band’s eccentric and influential cast of collegues. I had never heard “The Crazy” before the intimate soiree but was hooked after 3 minutes of communal, churchy clapping. Live — especially stripped to its bare bones — Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggits are encompassingly awesome.

3. Babies by Erik Griffin. YO, Who went to Cobb’s last weekend?! There’s a lot of people in comedy that can rock their vibe all day. Griffin’s one of those guys: immensely aware, assured, and down-to-earth. On this selection he gets a lot of juice out of his post-natal contention, making deft points about cellphones and travel along the way.

4. What I Worship by Maria Bamford. I missed my opportunity to watch Bam Bam at Cobb’s last week, but I would be remiss not to include one of my favorite tracks from her recently released “Ask Me About My New God!”. Bamford is going to go down as one of the most on-point and naturally hilarious comedians to ever do it.

5. Don’t Lose Your Head by Eban Schletter and Vernon Wells. The inclusion of this track is a bit of a stretch. Not particularly humorous, and barely relevant to the “Bay Area” ideal of Courting Comedy (Schletter called SF home bay in the 90s). Nevertheless, the spooktacular Hallow’s Eve is on the horizon and this is the best I could do on such short notice!
