Tenacious D’s Jack Black and Kyle Gass are returning for their 4th year hosting the Annual Festival Supreme at Shrine Expo Hall & Grounds in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 29th.
The creators and curators Black and Gass writes about this year’s festival:
“Everything is better in space. Aren’t you sick of Earth? All the turmoil? The politics? The red tape? The Traffic? The global shitstorm? If so, join us for a once in a lifetime escape to an off-world extravaganza! Our deluxe spacecraft includes the greatest entertainment line-up in the known universe. Don’t be a dill weed…buy tickets now before the Deth Starr is filled to capacity!”
Now, if you haven’t figured it out yet, from the extraterrestrial vernacular to the various Star Wars references in the festival poster, this year’s Festival Supreme (or Festival Supreme: The Final Frontier, as its known on the poster) will be held under a space theme. Black and Gass continue:
“Our space fest features three separate performance venues. Omega Stage is outside under the Milky Way Galaxy and will be rocking all night long with the likes of Flight of the Conchords and “Weird Al” Yankovic!!!
The gorgeous Shrine Auditorium will be transformed into the Crab Nebula Stage with Patton Oswalt and Sarah Silverman throwing down hard, and that’s just the tip of the meteorite!
The Expo Hall will be home to the space Disco where badass Dj’s will keep your asses moving thru hyperspace like a boss.
What else? How about a carefully curated retro-arcade with the greatest space themed pinball machines and video games in human history. Rad space themed rides & slides. The best food in the Cosmos.”
If the overwhelming abundance of exclamation marks is any indicator, the festival this year hopefully will be the beyond-this-world experience the Tenacious DJs (as they are known on the poster) say it will be.
