When it comes to comedy, Brightest Young Things don’t fuck around. Tomorrow marks the beginning of their Bentzen Ball 2013 comedy extravaganza, a week filled with a ton of events featuring amazing comedians. On Saturday, October 12th, BYT will be taking over the Howard Theatre for a special competition between the Found Footage Fest and Everything Is Terrible, the internet’s warring kings of found footage. The battle is sure to be truly epic. But if that wasn’t enough — and this is where the music comes in — they’ll be following that up with an afterparty featuring DJ sets from Animal Collective, They Might Be Giants, NPR’s Bob Boilen (All Things Considered) and Tig Notaro’s Indigo Girls-filled iPod. That all just sounds so right.
We’ve got a pair of tickets to giveaway to both of these events. For a chance to win, let us know what your ideal comedian-musician double billing would be. We’ll pick a winner by Saturday morning. For those of you who don’t win, you can grab tickets to the whole shebang here.
