“There are few things Diana doesn’t have time for these days. Notably: Assholes and subtlety.” —Vulture
“Bad-ass.”—The Wall Street Journal
Diana and Matt (aka CUTE) locked themselves in a space for 24 hours and wrote brand new music so by the time the 24 hours was up, they had a brand new concert to perform. They will bring selections from 24 Hour Punk to SHOWROOM, alongside music from Diana’s latest work, Clairvoyance, about what has happened since Diana took the advice of the spiritual counselor she visited in the jungle in Thailand. An evening of fiercely independent music.

Spokaoke is a karaoke bar unlike any other: Instead of Top 40, Annie Dorsen has curated a Top 100. Take the mike for one of 100 political speeches from Jesus’s “Sermon on the Mount” to Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a Woman” to George W. Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” to Cher Horowitz’s “Should All Oppressed People be Allowed Refuge in America” from Clueless. Here’s your chance to play with power: Who needs ABBA when you’ve got Sarah Palin?
