The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Late Night Basement is back for another installment at the Pine Box Rock Shop in Brooklyn! This month’s lineup includes music, comedy, 2-for-1 beers from Heavy Seas, and of course, shenanigans.

Mates of State is a musical duo who have been rocking out since 1995, with noteworthy features in NY Mag, Pitchfork, SPIN, NPR and more. Not only will they be performing a few songs, but they will also be interviewed by your host Chris Rose.

Meanhwhile, stand-up comedian Sheng Wang, whose claim to fame includes a guest spot on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and a Comedy Central special, will be responsible for funnies. Oh, by the way, he’s also known to accept hot dogs from strangers when drunk. Bring in the franks!

Finally, author/illustrator Christie Young is releasing her first book, Girl Talk: Unsolicited Advice for Modern Ladies, on August 26. Watch as the contributor to the Book of Jezebel goes toe to toe with Chris Rose, and touches on the moment that you realize that you look exactly like your boyfriend’s sister.

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.
