Tonight at 8pm, UCSB Arts & Lectures presents Wesley Stace’s Cabinet of Wonders, featuring Eugene Mirman.
Hosted by musician and novelist Wesley Stace (aka John Wesley Harding) and comedian Eugene Mirman (Flight of the Conchords), Cabinet of Wonders is a weekly NPR radio program featuring musicians, writers, raconteurs, and comedians. Each show is a compendium of musical performances, storytelling, engaging repartee, and surprising collaborations.
Tonight’s Cabinet of Wonders appearance at UCSB will feature the following special guests: comedian Kurt Braunohler; Dean Wareham & Britta Phillips of Dean & Britta (plus Luna & Galaxie 500); comedy legend & filmmaker Bobcat Goldthwait; Alec Ounsworth (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah); John Roderick (The Long Winters & Harvey Danger); veteran singer Ned Doheny; and novelist Matthew Spektor.
After a planned morning master-class tomorrow, Thursday, November 14th, KCSB-FM’s programmers and staff are also excited about the chance Wesley Stace might visit our studios during one of our special Fund-Drive broadcasts! (which continues through Friday night, November 15th) Stay tuned for updates about a possible on-air appearance!
Some were also pleased to discover a vintage KCSB-FM station ID recorded many years ago by none-other than John Wesley Harding himself! (Click on the player or download it, below.)
