In the end, at least three Nashville submissions made it through the first round — but as the great philosopher Christopher Lambert once said, there can only be one. Despite a tough bid by Corporate Juggernaut's pile of Def Poetry Jam DVDs, Tig Notaro (and Showtime) has selected Squalor Holler as the Nashville stop on her roadtrip across America. Squalor Holler is inhabited by Dana Delworth, who you may know as the first-place winner in 2011's You Are So Nashville If ... issue, with her submission of "Gay gay gay, gay gay; gay gay gay gay gay."
Notaro arrives in town on Friday, with the show scheduled to start around
8 p.m. 7 p.m. in East Nashville. Details aren't completely nailed down yet, but in the spirit of good sportsmanship, Corporate Juggernaut is pitching in on the cause. Word has it that in addition to Notaro and opener John Dore, the free, taped comedy show will also feature performances by Ri¢hie and Brandon Jazz. The address of the Holler is undisclosed, but if you know a guy who knows a guy, you'll find your way there.
UPDATE: Details have started to shape-up around this show, which is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. (on the dot) tomorrow. In addition to Notaro and opener John Dore, the show will feature musical support from Ri¢hie, Tristen, Brandon Jazz & His Armed Forces and Mystery Twins with perhaps some special guests in tow. Additionally, Jazz noted that technically Squalor Holler and Corporate Juggernaut were selected to co-host this event. So, there you go.
UPDATE x2: Due to threats of torrential downpours later tonight, tonight's Tig Notaro show has been moved from Squalor Holler to The East Room. Doors will open at 6 p.m. and the capacity crowd is 300 people.
