My third live Welcome to Night Vale show. I still like the experience of "The Librarian" best, but the audience-participation part of this one was way more to my personal taste than "The Investigators" (and pretty self-evident from the title).

Unfortunately the big climax didn't quite land for me, but that's because I liked it better when (redacted) did it. And I do wish they wouldn't mix the music and sound effects so loud. But on the whole it was a very enjoyable 70 minutes.

Guests, which change from show to show, as I understand it, so not really spoilers, but just to be safe: tonight's guests )

The music was Erin McKeown, previously heard on the weather with "The Queer Gospel".

Finally, Cecil's pants really have to be seen to be believed.

I basically passed out as soon as I could last ngiht, but I'm at my car dealership this morning waiting for maintenance, so I can burble about yesterday's new WtNV episode.

spoilers for Fashion Week )

I haven't been keeping up with fic in this fandom; anyone have recs, particularly of stories in script format or otherwise extremely canon-typical in tone?

Episode 51, "Rumbling": I completely forgot the existence of this episode until I was checking a list for titles. On skimming the transcript . . . yeah, no wonder I forgot it, though it has an extremely cute Carlos/Cecil moment at the end.

Episode 52, "The Retirement of Pamela Winchell": we were asked at the LonCon panel who our favorite character was, and she was the first one to come to my mind (besides Cecil, I mean). So this was great.

Episode 53, "The September Monologues": I was thoroughly unimpressed with the middle one as a character, and the voice that Steve Carlsberg's actor uses makes my ears itch.

Episode 54, "A Carnival Comes to Town": (spoilers) )

And hey, a weather by a band I knew already! We'd seen PigPen Theatre Co.'s "The Old Man and The Old Moon" (NYT review) on a trip to NYC a few years ago. It was generally charming but I spent every minute that the female character was onstage thinking (a) this guy is doing a very nice job of playing an old woman but (b) could they really not have found a single female actor to guest in this role, even if they didn't want to have her be in their company/band?
