Aug 9, 2011 - My Name is =W=

Wow, what a fun show. Today we had Amy Shostak, Artistic Director of Rapid Fire Theatre, in to talk about the Edmonton Fringe Festival, which begins this Thursday, Aug 11! Amy has a great show called My Name Is Jonas, a sketch comedy show based on the songs of Weezer. This gave me an excuse to unleash my deep love of early Weezer on you, the listener. It was fun playing some rarities and deep cuts, so I hope you enjoy.
