We had an amazing time at Doc’s Lab on Tuesday night. This is a room that, when it was known as the Purple Onion, hosted numerous groundbreaking comedians, including Lenny Bruce, the Smothers Brothers (who recorded their first album there), Richard Pryor, Woody Allen, and Phyllis Diller. So, we’re proud and honored to be part of that comedy tradition. Also, the area, North Beach, was infamously known as the Barbary Coast, where any and all lewd and lascivious acts were permitted—we’re honored to be part of that tradition, too. We also introduced Ricky Lipz, our first ever special guest, who sat in on “GFY” and “Wonderin'”—Check out our setlist from the show.
Tuesday also marked the release of Chad Galactic’s album, So Hot Right Now, as well as his video for “South of the Border,” animated by Josh Clark, who bears resemblance to our estranged guitarist, Sad Al.
As you probably know, Clark also animated our video for “Wonderin,'” which you should watch repeatedly and share with everyone you know.
A big thanks to all the friends, family, and fans who showed up to make it a lively evening filled with (mostly imagined) debauchery. Lastly, thanks also goes out to our friend Fred Torphy—who has curated Tuesday night music at Doc’s Lab all year—for begging us to play.
