Radio Happy Hour, the live series that revamps old-timey variety radio shows and has featured the likes of Norah Jones
and The Hold Steady at its home base of (Le) Poisson Rouge, decamps the Village for Gowanus tonight. At the Bell House, Thao Nguyen
(of alt-folky Thao with The Get Down Stay Down
) and Soul Coughing’s Mike Doughty
(who is everywhere these days—he just popped up at the World Record Appreciation Society setting a record for “Longest Extemporaneous Mid-Song Monologue”) provide the tunes, with comedy back-up from Best Week Ever’s Jessi Klein
, Ali Wong
and John & Molly Knepfel.
