Our review of Nirvanna the Band the Show starring Matt Johnson, Jay McCarrol and lots of real people. Synopsis: Matt Johnson (The Dirties, Operation Avalanche) and co-conspirator Jay McCarrol revive their cult-hit web series about a hapless two-piece Toronto band who will do anything to play a show at The Rivoli — apart from actually writing and rehearsing any actual songs. It’s all about one perfect gig. In lieu of actually writing music, however, the two attempt to garner attention via various other schemes, such as building a demonic float for the city’s Santa Claus Parade or shooting a renegade film project in a high school. If only they could focus long enough to work on their set list. Based on the popular web series created by and starring Jay McCarrol and Matt Johnson (who also directs), nirvanna the band the show is a celebration of popular culture, social absurdity, and friendship. Now moving to Primetime, with Vice and executive producer Spike Jonze along for the ride, the show sees its dynamic duo bumbling their way through various adventures with a naïveté that’s sometimes politically incorrect but always endearing.
We also talk with comic creator Joëlle Jones! Her latest book, Lady Killer 2, is currently being published by Dark Horse Comics (Issue 2 hits stands this week!). The sequel to the successful Lady Killer miniseries, the comic follows Josie, a housewife who also happens to be a hitman. Now living in Florida, the woman has to juggle taking care of her husband and kids with her career and getting rid of a body or two.
It was a great show!
