YOU OUGHTA KNOW that Alanis Morissette’s new single “Guardian” is here. It’s a precursor to her album that’s dropping in August by the name of Havoc and Bright Lights. And if you love Alanis you probably know that on June 19th she is giving a TimesTalk. But if that isn’t enough for you, you can pre-party as well.
It’s been 17 years since Jagged Little Pill came out. Can you believe it? “Ironic”, “Hand in my Pocket”, “Head Over Feet”, “You Oughta Know”: all part of the pop music canon. So it’s fitting that its 17th anniversary will be celebrated with a kick-ass variety show.
Comedians, musicians, and storytellers will pay tribute to Alanis at the show, which’ll be hosted by Carolyn Castiglia of Comedy Central and VH1, and Mindy Raf of VH1 and College Humor. They’ll be joined by a long list of dynamic performers (below) on Friday, June 15 at 7 PM at Joe’s Pub (tickets are $25). It will be a night full of musical fun, so don’t regret the good advice that you just didn’t take. Get your ticket HERE!
