/// David Liebe Hart ///
While the musician, actor and puppeteer is best known through his association with comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the 61-year old Hart has long been one of the L.A. art scene’s most cherished cult figures. And he’s optimistic that his best years are ahead of him.
After decades spent in relative obscurity (although some of his early acting credits include appearances on Good Times, The Golden Girls and Wings), Hart received his big break in 2007 as a recurring cast member on Adult Swim’s Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, in which he portrayed a slightly exaggerated version of himself. Each of his sketches was set against a trippy animated background and consisted of Hart singing a “duet” with one of his bizarre marionette puppets.
Hart’s most iconic Awesome Show skit is for the song “Salamé,” which he performs with the bloated, ragged, nearly human-sized “Jason the Cat” puppet.
DLH brings his eccentric act into full freaky fruition with visuals, music and of course – his puppets.
DLH will be joined by an all Led Zeppelin/Ween tribute – Wed ZepWeen, heavy freak rockers – Go Go Buffalo and jam funkers – Ample Parking.
This event will feature the surreal emcee stylings of Vampire Weekend at Bernie’s
