Musical guest - Alialujah Choir - Mix two parts Weinland, one part Norfolk & Western and add a twist of folk guitar. This sonorous supergroup is not technically a choir but they sure sound pretty like one. They just released their self-titled album on Jealous Butcher Records, The Doubleclicks - Comedy/Nerd folk duo who have played with Paul and Storm, Wil Wheaton and have played some pretty nerdy festivals. We like nerds.
