The Theater of Public Policy—the live variety show about local politics that’s a lot funnier than a live variety show about local politics probably should be—are itching to take the show on the road to our nation’s capitol and you can help them out by kickstarting their travel and production expenses. It’s the same wonky comedy, but with the movers and shakers from our national political system! We’re talking huge wonks. The Washington Improv Theater (W.I.T.) has already agreed to host four of the six shows T2P2 are planning, now they just need some help to get there.
Paying just $3 ticket to this show curated by Totally Gross National Product is just nuts. Even if it was just Allan Kingdom—you know, the young man from St. Easy who’s in the new explosive hip hop group The St4ndard and happens to guest on a Kanye track—at the Kitty Cat Klub, the show is a major happening. But add in the ultra-funky Spank Rock, warped electronic duo Pony Bwoy, and DJ Taskforce, and it’s one of the hottest shows of the summer—that’s also cheaper than one beer if you RSVP to the show. Saturday, July 11th, 8 PM. $12, $3 with registration.

Big news here in Minnesnowta: King Keillor has named his heir to a Prairie Home Companion. Chris Thile of Nickel Creek and bluegrass impresarios Punch Brothers, and one mean mandolin player, has already filled in as host twice and has done a bang up job, not to mention Punch Brothers putting on one of the best shows at First Ave so far this year. So we’re on board with the pick. The two will co-host in 2016, which we imagine will be like a year-long celebration of Keillor as a retirement party, with Thile taking over full time after that.
