Well, it’s sorta a review. Playlisted, more of an introduction. Read at A.V. Club.
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.
Vice Cooler as Hawnay Troof, in “Connection”
Andre Hyland as Jesse Miller, in “Pretty Lady Bike”

* “Elliott Smith’s death gets a mention — a display of Mestizo’s ability to intertwine classic rap braggadocio with harrowing reality and emotive introspection.”
