Few would have guessed that 'Weird Al' Yankovic - who as a shy, accordion-playing teenager got his start sending homemade tapes in to the 'Dr. Demento Radio Show' - would go on to become the biggest-selling comedy recording artist in history and a pop culture icon. Now in his fourth career decade as America's foremost song parodist, he has been honored with four Grammy® Awards and 15 nominations, including his most recent win in 2015 for Mandatory Fun, the first-ever comedy album in history to debut at #1 on the Billboard charts, capping a career's worth of accolades for classic song and music video parodies such as 'Eat It,' 'Like a Surgeon,' 'Smells Like Nirvana,' 'Amish Paradise,' 'White & Nerdy,' and 'Tacky.'

by Alix Cohen - Sep 30, 2015

Ninety percent of the way into her ebullient show last night at Birdland, So, As I Was Saying, Anita Gillette quotes a 1977 review of her performance in Neil Simon's Chapter Two that stated the warmth she exudes could melt glaciers. (The artist wasn't bragging, but was referring to her then difficulty in finding any glaciers, i.e., men to melt.) The description applies today. A packed audience comprised both of devoted civilian fans and theatrical luminaries cheered on the latest iteration of Gillette's dramatized life. Once again directed by Barry Kleinbort with musically directed by Paul Greenwood (who also appealingly sings duets), with Ritt Henn on bass and John Redsecker on drums, the show is as sincere and bubbly as the lady herself.

by Remy Block - Sep 19, 2015

Christine Lavin, prolific (and dang funny) songwriter and performer of the east coast cabaret and folk scenes, creates a hootenanny during her residency at Don't Tell Mama most Wednesday nights in September. Co-hosting the series is Don White, folk singer-songwriter and activist out of Lynhurst, MA. The special guest on the evening of September 9 was LA-based lyricist, singer, producer Hillary Rollins.
