Propagandhi: Fight the Power With Cannibalism

Well, Propagandhi doesn’t believe in war, but that’s about all this heavy metal/punk group and Gandhi, the world-renowned supporter of complete non-violence, have in common.

Sam Bisbee: Buzz Buzz Buzz

Matt And Kim: A Grand New Time

Brooklyn’s own Matt And Kim are no Sonny And Cher, even if they are dating. Mostly because they don’t have their own comedy show yet. Yet. Oh, and they actually play instruments. That’s another reason.
