The Guests


Michael Ian Black


Michael Ian Black probably first made you laugh right out of college in the iconic 1990s MTV series, The State. He later played bowling-alley manager Phil Stubbs in the long-running NBC dramedy, Ed. He tours the country doing stand-up comedy when not developing new series, writing films like Run, Fatboy, Run, entertaining his 1,750,000 Twitter followers, composing mind-blowing essays and authoring books for kids of all ages.


A.C. Newman


A.C. Newman is a full-fledged power-pop genius. He's the main songwriter and vocalist of The New Pornographers, and he's also a successful solo artist. A.C.'s most recent solo album, Shut Down the Streets, explores themes of life, death and parenthood in a way that is simultaneously emotionally fraught and spiritually contented.


Lucy Michelle


At 25, Lucy Michelle is a songwriter as serious as they come. Twin Cities natives will know her as frontwoman of gypsy-pop outfit Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, a raucous and eclectic six-piece. In April of 2013, Lucy will release her debut solo album, Attack of the Heart, which is co-produced by John Munson and Chan Poling.
