SOTC role model Ted Leo has had a long standing sideline in comedy, from Best Show cameos to Our Show skits, so it only makes sense that comedian John Frusciante, host of UCB’s Break Up Your Band (“a live monthly discussion about the state of music past and present, what you should and shouldn’t be listening to, and why KISS sucks so much”), would invite Leo to tonight’s edition. Especially when paired with excellent public speaker and music critic Rob Sheffield, writer/performer/Lizzy Caplan-model Julie Klausner, and writer Geoff Garlock, who plays (played?) bass in Panthers, though maybe he doesn’t want us telling you that. If you can stay up till midnight and have five dollars to spare we recommend you go.
