Tig Notaro was nominated for a Grammy Award for her sophomore comedy album LIVE. The album sold over 100,000 units in just 6 weeks, which is unheard of for comedy albums today.

During this campaign Tig also closed a book deal with Ecco, an imprint of Harper Collins.

Tig's project with Showtime, entitled, Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro, follows Tig as she performs in the actual homes, barns and cul-de-sacs of selected fans across the country. Tig also recently appeared in the Lake Bell feature, In a World, and is next slated to appear in the feature Walk of Shame opposite Elizabeth Banks, and Shreveport opposite Ryan Phillippe, both due out in 2014.

Over the course of 10 albums and nearly 3,000 live shows, Gaelic Storm — the chart-topping, multi-national Celtic band — is dishing up a hearty serving of Full Irish - The Best of Gaelic Storm. The greatest-hits album spans the bulk of the band’s career, mixing crowd favorites and concert staples with three previously unreleased recordings, including “Whiskey in the Jar” and “Irish Party in Third Class” from Titanic.  The album features sea shanties and drinking songs, traditional tunes and Gaelic Storm originals, instrumental workouts and vocal showcases.  Gaelic Storm has straddled the line between tradition and innovation for nearly two decades, infusing traditional Celtic music with modern influences, and updating the genre for a new generation of fans raised on rock, country and folk. Along the way, the group has topped the Billboard World Chart four times and earned a reputation as a hard-touring, genre-bending band.

VIDEO   FACEBOO

The Boston born, now generally Northeast based, but ever on-the-go Dopapod has come a long way from their college basement, DIY party roots. While maintaining to be as grassroots as their humble beginnings, the group has earned praise from taste making critics like The Huffington Post, Jambase, Relix, and The Boston Herald, all the while tending to their ever expanding community of devoted listeners. The past 4 years have individually held the weight of about 150 shows and included numerous festival appearances like Wakarusa, Summer Camp, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco, Peach Fest, & Gathering Of the Vibes. All of this time on stage together has given the band the opportunity to explore the wide variety of influences that has impacted them to be the players they are today. But, don’t be quick to think that the no holds barred openness to experimenting is unguided. While the brush in their hand uses every color, it’s the stroke on the canvas that gives Dopapod a distinct voice in the way of crafty songwriting.

For fans of... Phish, Primus,  Bass Nectar, The Meters
