Jams and Jokes - Courtney McClean and The Dirty Curls + Valley Meadows
Courtney McClean and the Dirty Curls
Their style of music, dubbed "Naughtybilly" is a side-splitting brew of country, bluegrass, rock, and musical theater. Think Tenacious D meets Kristen Wiig meets Loretta Lynn. Their songs are decidedly explicit; hilariously tackling such themes as anal sex, erotic feelings for cousins, lackluster pillow talk, safe words, and even that weird crush feeling you get when you're looking at a baby you know is going to grow up to be a devastatingly good-looking adult. They just wanna make you laugh, make you blush, and make you clap your hands. If you want to make love to their music, that's cool too.
Valley Meadows is the hip-hop duo of Gary Schishynszenski (Chris Knutson) and MC Tom Johnson (Zach Coulter). Was growing up in Valley Meadows, MN like living through one long episode of The Wire? Well, sure. But Tom and Gary rose above the pull of the streets to build a hip-hop career to rival the greats. Almost.
The pair combine hilarious lyrics and high-energy stage antics with the bangin'-est beats to blow minds wherever they go. Knutson is the winner of the 2010 Twin Cities Funniest Person Contest at Acme Comedy Company and Coulter is the winner of the 2011 ABSOLUT Funniest Comedian Contest. Valley Meadows were finalists in the 2011 "Minny's Got Talent" Contest at Mall of America's House of Comedy.
They've just released their first album which you can pickup at the show!
