We love Zach Galifianakis here at Paste (a lot, like, wasting entire days watching his hundreds of hilarious Internet videos a lot), and the Comedian of Comedy/pianist who likes to introduce himself as "Zatch," well, he loves music.
Ol' Gal pals around with Fiona Apple and Kanye West—last year he and fellow beard aficionado Will Oldham (a.k.a. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy) spent a day on Zatch's North Carolina farm filming a countrified lip-dub for 'Ye's "Can't Tell Me Nothing"—so he must've been a natural choice for New York magazine's latest NY x NY event: Indie Rock Trivia featuring Les Savy Fav and Galifianakis.
If you know your !!! from your Dot Dot Dot, gather some like-minded friends and head to the Highline Ballroom on May 21 to compete for what New York calls "super-fantabulous-over-the-top prizes."
When forming your dream triv team, keep in mind that you'll likely be competing with Williamsburg's sharpest hipsters. Then again, there's no way they'll be harder for Galifianakis to please than the youthful audience in this clip:
Tickets to New York magazine's Indie Rock Trivia night are $25 (plus a $3.75 service charge), include a subscription to the magazine, and are available here.
