ROCK THE VOTE
Ben Greenman’s Fake Celebrity Musicals on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency have long been a favorite of ours. Take these choice lines from his Fragments From Spitzer! The Musical: “I do deserve expensive sex/That is absolutely true/The rarest carnal luxury/Suits a great man through and through.” Given that we’re in the grips of a nail-biting 2012 election season, a good laugh at tonight’s launch party for The McSweeney’s Book of Politics and Musicals should alleviate your stress. Greenman hosts a program of performances by the contributors, including Mike Lacher (author of the Kerouac parody On the Bro’d written in all “bro speak”) and writer-singer Alina Simone.
