URDB Presents: World Record Appreciation Society #7







Fresh off a return appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon , the World Record Appreciation Society is gearing up for a massively outrageous July blowout. We'll be documenting over 10 new world records, there's a massive surprise lined up, and we've got the sweet beats of Blast Off! to rock us all night. Fresh!

The night will start with the World Premiere screening of Loud People, a hilarious new short from Todd Lamb. We'll then bring out songstress/comedienne Erin and Her Cello as our opening act, fresh off a headling gig at Joe's Pub.

The lineup of world records is shaping up to be our best ever, and we're thrilled that Blast Off!!! will once again represent as our URDB house band for the evening. Oh yeah, and free Pyrat Rum from 8 - 9!
