Wes & Eugene's Cabinet of Wonders, Tonight at the Brattle

If you haven't already gotten your tickets to tonight's Cabinet of Wonders show at the Brattle, don't wait to try to get them at the door. Eugene Mirman packed the Brookline Booksmith at last month's reading of The Will to Whatevs, and with all of the talent on the bill for Wonders, it's sure to sell out.

I spoke with Mirman about the show, and his book, in February. You can read the interview here.

This is the line-up, from the Brattle site.

John Wesley Harding (musician)
Eugene Mirman (comedian)
Tanya Donelly (musician)
Rick Moody (writer/musician)
P.T. Walkley (musician)
Tom Perotta (writer)
David Daniel (poet)
Larry Murphy (comedian)

That's a lot of talent, with a decidedly local bent. I'm especially happy to see Larry Murphy doing a set. He's the voice behind Assy McGee, a guilty pleasure of mine since I interviewed him about it for the Globe when it started in 2006.

Here's a bit of Murphy at work:
