Once again, Tenacious D's Festival Supreme has an amazing lineup of comedy, music and, naturally, musical comedy. Festival Supreme takes place Saturday, October 29 at the Shrine Expo Hall & Grounds. This is the fest's fourth year. Headliners include parody king "Weird Al" Yankovic, Flight of the Conchords, Patton Oswalt, Mac DeMarco, Sarah Silverman, Last Man on Earth's Will Forte, Portlandia's Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Nancy Whang, Garfunkel and Oates, Eric Andre Live!, The Vandals and many others. It also has something called "Music of Wet Hot American Summer." A For Your Consideration event by the same title occurred at UCB Sunset in June, and featured performances of original music from the show, so perhaps it'll be a little something like that.

While last year's theme transported us to Las Vegas, this year is taking us up to space. You might be able to glean this from the event poster, as various performers have been drawn as different iconic sci-fi characters. According to Tenacious D (otherwise known as Jack Black and Kyle Gass), we'll also get a "carefully curated retro-arcade with the greatest space themed pinball machines and video games in human history. Rad space themed rides & slides. The best food in the Cosmos."

Tickets go on sale on Friday, August 12 at 10 a.m. See pictures from last year's festival featuring Die Antwoord, Puddles Pity Party, Nathan Fielder and more here. See the full poster below.
