Video: "My Family" - Laurie Berkner (with Elizabeth Mitchell, Suzi Shelton, Dirty Sock Funtime Band)

When Laurie Berkner pulls Elizabeth Mitchell, Suzi Shelton, and the Dirty Sock Funtime Band onto the stage during her set at the Haiti benefit they all performed at last weekend at Joe's Pub in New York City, well, that demands YouTubery. It's like The Last Waltz, but shorter and with lower video quality. Laurie Berkner Band (and a cast of a dozen) - "My Family" (Live) [YouTube]

Video: "Donut Brain Aliens" - Dirty Sock Funtime Band

I probably should lead with the newest video, but it's a video for a song called "Donut Brain Aliens." How could I not lead with it? It's from the Dirty Sock Funtime Band, and it's from their new show that starts tomorrow (Wednesday, March 10) on WQED in Pittsburgh. It features "educational adventures... aimed at youngsters ages 3 to 8." Adventures involving donut brain aliens, apparently. Dirty Sock Funtime Band - "Animal Song" [Vimeo]

More, less, well, weird stuff from the show after the jump.
