The Dan Band is coming to NYC!

Quick quiz: What was the funniest part of the movie Old School?

If you answered The Dan Band playing "Total Eclipse of the Heart" at Will Farrell's wedding, you are correct.

In case you forgot, here's the song - not from the movie, but from The Dan Band live.

The Dan Band is the brainchild of Dan Finnerty from LA, and, according to Wikipedia, "the band is well known for its covers of originally female-performed pop songs, with added obscenities and swearing." But they are actually a really tight band with a great stage show. Their album is hilarious, with medleys of Hold on/Luka, Fame/What a feeling and, by far the best, Shoop / Whatta Man / Never Gonna Get It.

So for those of you in the NY area, they are going to be playing this Saturday night at the Filmore at Irving Plaza. I'm not allowed to go since I'm banned from the Filmore for trying to crowd surf during a Cowboy Junkies show. But I would encourage everyone else in the greater tri-state area to go and report back.

You can get tickets through ticketmaster here.
