City Paper is not for tourists
Down to its title, “Uhh Yeah Dude” combines all the worst podcast signifiers, but I swear it’s not terrible. True, it’s from Los Angeles (argh), its hosts are two white guys (boo), and their topic is pop culture (oh no). But it’s good! Hosts Jonathan Larroquette (son of John Larroquette of Night Court fame!) and Seth Romatelli have returned to the same things over their eight years of conversations, from Seth’s never-was Hollywood career (his big break came in the stalled/semicult Britney Spears vehicle Crossroads) and a shared fear of elderly drivers, to Craigslisters seeking sexual release in unusual ways. It’s like culture-searching tales of This American Life told entirely from a split-level living room—or, as the podcast’s slogan has it, “America Through the Eyes of Two American Americans.” If that still sounds awful, well, at least you can enjoy their live show with a beer. The show begins at 6 p.m. at 9:30 Club, 815 V St. NW. $20. (202) 265-0930. 930.com.
