It started off as an off-the-cuff challenge: which spouse is funnier. After a few open mics, Henry and Sarah decided they really enjoyed performing on stage together. Stand Up Stand Off is their first official showcase and the fabulous Robert Schneider (of the Apples In Stereo/The Elephant Six collective) will serve as their one-man-band-leader. Other musicians will be dropping in, including William Tyler, The Sunset District and other suprise guests. The early show will end with a special set by newly signed Trouble In Mind Records recording artists Omni. The late show will close with a very special set by All The Saints who haven't performed in town for almost three years. We will kick everybody out after the first show and start it all up again, but rest assured, a good time will be had by all. There's also going to be surprises (comedic and otherwise), but we're keeping mum on those for now.
