Two very different pairs of brothers are making an appearance at the next installment of Late Night Basement, Chris Rose’s monthly live talk show. The Lucas Bros., as you know from , are the weed-loving twins who recently appeared in 22 Jump Street. Pete and Pete, as you know from watching Nickelodeon in the ’90s, are the main characters of one of the hippest and most beloved kids shows in history (so hip that the music of Stephen Merritt was often featured). As far as we know they weren’t ones for weed — unless you count Little Pete calling people “dillweed” and “jerkweed.”
This Friday, Oct. 10, the actors who played Big Pete and Little Pete, Mike Maronna and Danny Tamberelli, will be at Pine Box Rock Shop along with author and Vanity Fair editor Mike Sacks and comedian Brooke Van Poppelen. Rose will premiere a new Mates of State music video he helped create, and The Lucas Bros. will do standup. (Incidentally, the low-key lookalikes from Lucas Bros. Moving Co. are starring in a new sketch show, Friends of the People, premiering Oct. 28 on truTV.)
Not only is all of this free, but somehow the organizers have arranged for 2-for-1 beers while supplies last. That’s a gift Oprah’s audience never got.
Also! Maronna and Tamberelli will be taping their podcast, The Adventures of Danny and Mike, at the Bell House tomorrow, followed by a rare live performance by Polaris, the house band from The Adventures of Pete and Pete. Tickets are $10 and available here.
