Back in January the NerdMelt Showroom hosted our Los Angeles premiere. For those unfamiliar with the Nerdist empire, this venue is truly sacred ground for comedy. Housed in the backroom of Meltdown Comics, the NerdMelt hosts weekly shows featuring up and coming to nationally established comics – Louis CK, Robin Williams, Aziz Ansari, Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray, Kumail Nanjiani, and Dan Harmon.
At this screening we were lucky to get a number of people featured in Records Collecting Dust to come out for an after film Q&A hosted by comedian Kyle Clark. The lineup included David Yow, Keith Morris, Lisa Fancher, Danny Benair, Justin Pearson, Jason Blackmore, and Pat Thomas. The roundtable got pretty lively at certain points. Here’s what we learned:
Never disregard Fleetwood Mac in Danny Benair’s presence.
Danny Benair was at Altamont and sitting behind Charlie Watts drum set during the riot.
David Yow will give you his personal copies of rare Jesus Lizard records if you ask.
Justin Pearson’s first concert was Chaka Khan for his 7th birthday.
