David Liebe Hart and Hunter Valentine perform in town this week
OK, maybe David
Liebe Hart and Hunter Valentine are not the A-list celebs you had in mind, but
for fans of Adult Swim’s cult hit Tim and
Eric Awesome Show Great Job! and Showtime’s unscripted guilty pleasure The Real L Word (respectively), this is
an exciting week to be in Cincinnati.
Tonight, The Comet
hosts a free show with David Liebe Hart, Hardon Collider and Jordin Goff. Considering Hart's
best known from Adult Swim, it should be expected that this show will bring the
weird. Hart gained attention with his Los Angeles public television show, The Junior Christian Science Bible Lesson
Program — a quirky mix of music, puppetry, cautions against drug use and
much more. Today, he’s recognized from Tim
and Eric, on which he’s performed songs with said creepy puppets.
Check him out at
The Comet tonight for punk rock
and puppets at 9 p.m. Fun fact: DLH believes that as a child, he was abducted by
aliens known as Korendians.
Here’s his tribute to the alien race:
And now for
something completely different!
Hunter Valentine is
a Toronto-born, NYC-based alt-rock lady band currently touring North America.
The group played 2011’s MidPoint Music Festival and is returning to Mainstay
Rock Bar Friday night in support of Collide and Conquer, debuting Oct. 23.
The band formed in
2004 and I’ll admit, they weren’t on my radar until this summer when The Real L Word’s third season
premiered. The reality show centered on a group of hip L.A. lesbians introduced
new cast members from New York City this season. The new ladies? Hunter
Valentine. Cameras followed lead singer Kiyomi, drummer Laura, bassist Vero and
then-guitar and keyboard player Somer as they jammed, drank, partied and
fought their way through last year’s tour. The season ended with Somer (not-so-surprisingly)
parting ways with the band, making room for HV newbie, Aimee.
Will Real L’s Lauren, who made things
official with Kiyomi the the end of the season, be present as Hunter Valentine groupie
supreme? Swing by Mainstay Downtown at 10:30 p.m. Friday to find out.
