Paul F. Tompkins
Paul F. Tompkins is the place where style meets substance. Sure, he’s got his trendy bases covered, having been on Mr. Show with Bob and David, Real Time with Bill Maher, Best Week Ever, and Comedy Bang! Bang! You’ve heard of him, you know he’s cool. But did you know he’s now hosting his own Earwolf podcast—SPONTANEANATION—that’s entirely improvised, down to the comedy sketches and music? Did you know he provides the voice for shmarmy labrador Mr. Peanutbutter on the Netflix series Bojack Horseman? Did you know he’s the best-dressed man in show business? Oh wait, that’s style again. With Paul it can be hard to draw the line sometimes.
The Devil Makes Three
Many artists seem to draw inspiration from a well of raw talent, while many more spend countless, methodical hours perfecting their craft. Pete Bernhard, frontman for acoustic punk-blues trio The Devil Makes Three has spent more than a decade earning fans the hard way - pounding the grass-roots club circuit with raucous, foot-stomping hoedowns. His fifth full-length release, Redemption & Ruin continues to flesh out his variety of influences into a one of a kind sound. What about live? The Washington Post remarked, “With string-busting rhythms charging with a garage beat and a fiddle running furious enough for a mosh pit, it’s a reminder this band grew up on rock.” Pete Bernhard clearly has that rare combination of pure talent and devoted determination. Yep, we’re in.
