To Do: Spooky Talk Show Live Benefit
by Aaron Sarlo • February 24, 2017
If you’re a fan of the devil (and who among us isn’t — the dude invented chocolate and internet porn), you have somewhere to be on Saturday because the devil will be at Vino’s. Josh the Devil, to be specific. That’s right: The Devil is named Josh (Smith), and he has a YouTube show, “Spooky Talk Show,” that airs live Sunday nights. Season one of “Spooky Talk Show” has wrapped (the final guests were sludge rock masters Iron Tongue) and now “Spooky Talk Show” is holding a benefit to help fund a second, glorious season. And, what an event Josh the Devil has in store for us. Comedians Jay Jackson, Jared Lowry, Kit Haraughty, Kayla Esmond, Devincey Moore and Paul Hodge will be there, as well as musicians Jeremiah James Baker, William Blackart, Daniel Renfro, Chris Long and Justin McGoldrick of the P-47’s. The night’s featured guests are “The Colonel,” and Velvetine Tombstone: R&B Psychic. According to Smith, “There will also be surprise guests and prizes!” Emphasis his, but who doesn’t enjoy prizes? All of this entertainment is being brought to you in the format of a “Conan [O’Brien] on-the-road special.” Smith says, “I will have the desk on stage and everything. We will be taping it to broadcast later.” Read that last part? They’re taping the festivities. So bring your hollering voice. As if all of the aforementioned glee wasn’t enough, the event will be hosted by multitalented local superstar Michael Brown (“Brain Trust with Michael Brown”). Your $7 will get you this great night of entertainment (at a legendary venue with scrumptious pizza and even better beer), and also awholenother season of Spooky Talk Show. Best deal of the week!
