califunya? cali-wtf-ya!

A well known patron of the gently absurd, Lavender Diamond frontwoman Beck Stark has penned and directed a new web-only variety show called ‘Califunya!’, a “peace comedy” starring fellow singer-songwriters Mia Doi Todd and Ariana Delawari, with guest appearances from the likes of The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy. We heard about this a while back but only just got around to checking it out, and, well, it’s all a bit surreal. To be expected, really.

They’re already up to episode three, which finds Stark struggling to put up a curtain between two trees and dancing with glee when it finally stays up. That’s pretty much it. Previous episodes involve songs, swings and a garden arbour. Artist and filmmaker Miranda July (‘Me And You And Everyone We Know’) will appear later in the series. All are free to view here.
