Venue: Revolution Hall
Doors: 6:30pm
Show: 7:30pm

Peter Mehlman
Peter Mehlman has the auspicious honor of being the writer of the first episode of Seinfeld, ever. Without Mehlman, we'd never have "yada-yada'd" anything or considered anyone "spongeworthy." Mehlman's first novel, It Won't Always Be This Great is out now on Bancroft Press.

Sara Seager
Professor Seager is an astrophysicist and a pioneer in the field of exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars that aren't the sun. Dubbed an "astronomical Indiana Jones," her current quest is the holy grail of astrophysics, a true Earth twin.

Gregory Gourdet & Doug Adams
This season's Top Chef: Boston should've been titled "Top Chef: Boston, brought to you by Portland, Oregon," with two of the final three chefs hailing from Portland. Gourdet, first runner-up, is the Executive Chef at Departure and an ultra marathon runner. Adams was second runner-up and works as Chef du Cuisine at Imperial.

More to be announced.

Upcoming Live Shows

Saturday, March 28, 2015
Venue: Revolution Hall
Doors: 6:30pm
Show: 7:30pm

Barney Frank
After serving as a legislator for over 30 years and Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, Barney Frank was still well-liked when he retired in 2013—he was rated the smartest, funniest and most eloquent member of Congress by Washingtonian magazine. In 1987, Frank was the first representative of the house of representatives to come out as gay.

Ian Karmel
Before he was appearing on Conan and writing for Chelsea Lately and the new James-Corden-headed Late Late Show, standup comic Ian Karmel told a great, heartwarming story on a little show called Live Wire Radio. We like to think we're totally responsible for his success.

Aparna Nancherla
A standup comic with a decidedly absurdist point-of-view, Aparna Nancherla has appeared on Conan, @Midnight and as a semi-regular commentator on the totally great but totally-canceled-before-its-time Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

Joe Pug
After touring relentlessly for four years, singer/songwriter Joe Pug finally took a breather, and it paid off in spades. His latest release, Windfall has been deemed his best yet by critics who have called him, strangely, a "more urgent, imploring and non-whiny Bob Dylan." They're right. Bob Dylan IS whiney.

Goapele
Goapele means "to move forward" in Setswana, and she has been doing that since her debut in 2001 as an American singer/songwriter, appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan, and Soul Train and in magazines like Rolling Stone and Billboard. Her latest release is Strong as Glass.

More to be announced.

David Bronner
You might think Dr. Bronner's Castille Soap is just a great way to wash up while reading a label with gems like, "Wait! Arise to the stars above and thrill!," but due to CEO David Bronner's activism (he planted hemp in the DEA's front yard), the company is a forerunner in the fight for hemp legalization and against GMOs.
 

Mighty Oaks
Like a tiny U.N. of indie folk music, Mighty Oaks brings together three men from three different countries to engage in three-part harmonies. Their latest record is Howl.

Jason Isbell
Former Drive-by-Trucker Jason Isbell's last performance on Austin City Limits was so compelling that they released a DVD of his full 15-song set in November, so missing him live might lead to a massive case of FOMO. His latest record is Southeastern.
