    ...haven't seen any posts on this yet, so here you go:

    From the producers of "Best in Show" and "Waiting for Guffman", a different musical experience (featuring members of Spinal Tap, no less).

    I was flipping channels the other day, and came across "The Big Easy Awards" (New Orleans=The BIg Easy, case that isn't widely known). It was on the local cable channel.

    Hosting it was Harry Shearer (Derek Smalls of Spinal Tap, voices on the Simpsons, and now he's the bass player in A Mighty Wind). Very weird. He welcomed Vance Degeneres (Daily show, the new Let's Make a Deal, he's from New Orleans), calling Vance "my fellow bass player". My mom told me he was in a band called The Cold, though I haven't heard of them. Not super-related to your topic, but I thought it was all just a weird occurence.

    I can't wait for this flick to come to my area! I already own This is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, and Best in Show on DVD. These Chris Guest (and co.) films are great!
