There’s something nostalgic about sitting in a basement.

It reminds you of home. It’s relaxing.

You almost feel as if you’re hiding from the world.

Best Newsletter Ever!

Join our weekly newsletter so we can send you awesome freebies, weird events, incredible articles, and gold doubloons (note: one of these is not true).

Well, if you’re reading this, you’re not a home anymore. You’re living in a brutal city with high prices, five of the weirdest people you call roommates, and lint in your pocket. The basement no longer exists at home, but there is one at the Legion Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn!

The Legion Bar will be hosting a FREE Late Night Basement Show beginning Thursday, January 31st at 8PM. Your host will be Chris Rose, writer and contributor for MTV, The Onion, and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

This live show will be kicking off with stand-up comedians and musical guests, including one of the “Best Comedians of 2012” according to Esquire Magazine, stand-up comic Brooke Van Poppelen, and one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch,” stand-up comic Dave Hill.

The fun doesn’t stop there! Dapwell of Das Racist is stopping by for an interview, and you will be serenaded by chip music from Iron Curtain, as he plays his original 8-bit music throughout the night.

So RSVP on the Late Night Basement Facebook event page! It’ll guarantee you entrance into the Legion Bar’s back room and you’ll once again feel like your back at home in the basement. Nostalgia is beautiful thing.

Also, check out the Late night Basement show teaser featuring President Barack Obama.

Enrique Grijalva - Mr. Minimum Wage

My father came, my mother saw...and I conquered. I encourage children to do drugs, I buy alcohol for teenagers, and I drink beer with the homeless. In my spare time, I attend art galleries for the FREE booze while rubbing elbows with modish elephants. I also hammer six-inch nails into small penises. Stuart knighted me as Broke-Ass King of New York. You've been warned.
