Funny or Die announced today that Dave Chappelle and Flight of the Conchords will headline FoD's first-ever Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, which will take to the road for a multi-city tour in August, beginning in Austin, Tex. It's not going to make it all the way to San Francisco or Oakland though, so comedy and curiosity fans will have to trek over to the outdoor Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View to see the show.

Other headliners include Kristen Schaal, John Mulaney, Hannibal Buress, Al Madrigal, Demetri Martin, and Chris D'Elia. Then there's going to be a second comedy stage, featuring local comedians, hosted by the always energetic Brody Stevens. Additionally, the show's website promises "freaks" and psychics and booze. Maybe the psychics will be able to predict the comedians' punchlines? Or your money back.

Tickets go on sale Friday for the Sept. 20 show.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
