ERIC ANDRE: I SMELLED LIKE A PIGPEN

October 25th, 2016

Eric Andre is a comic, actor, prankster and (currently dormant) musician. Right now, he portrays an inept talk show host on Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show, where he regularly ends up smashing his desk, exposing his junk and sharing his bodily functions with his guests. The experience is closer to a GG Allin show than Late Night with Letterman. He was driving around Florida for a standup tour when we spoke over the phone about his upcoming season, wreaking havoc at the RNC, and the multiple levels of angst that came from growing up in Boca Raton, Florida. You can see his Eric Andre Live! at Festival Supreme this Saturday, Oct. 29, at the Shrine. This interview by Vanessa Gonzalez.

COSMONAUTS: COSMONAUTS

October 25th, 2011

Fullerton may have fallen off the map since those glory days, but it seems to be experiencing a full scale renaissance as of late, what with the opening of Burger Records and the trifecta of bands generating much hype: Audacity, Dirt Dress and the Cosmonauts. All these bands make lo-fi stoner garage punk of the highest caliber, overtly borrowing from others while still being undeniably unique (same could be said for Burger’s aesthetics). If Picasso’s quote, “good artists borrow, great artists steal,” is true, then the Fullerton scene is a gang of kleptomaniacal octopi.
