'Adult Swim Presents A.C. Newman & Cheeseburger'
Indie rocker A.C. Newman, with his lush, sensitive odes to heartbreak, is the most out of place in tonights lineup, which was selected by comedian Jon Glaser as a means to promote his show on Adult Swim. Then again, perhaps the New Pornographers frontman is here to provide some respite from the evening's other, bawdier performers (Brooklyn über-rockers Cheeseburger, similar sounding Atlanta rockers the Woggles, and a hockey-mask-wearing burlesque review), who've each had some involvement with the Cartoon Networks late-night block. But hey, one of Newmans songs was on How I Met Your Mother; that has to count for something.
