Trumpacolypse Now: F' IT, DO IT LIVE

HERE is the show where we say, "FUCK IT, DO IT LIVE" with this good-riddance special to Bill O'Riley.  George Carlin starts us off, we get to Guess Where Bill is Going (hint: to Hell), Trev Noah shreds, Old Colbert returns to Send Bill off (to Hell), "What does that mean, the end of the show?"

And, with mad respect, we get going with music that will be at the MOOGFEST, including Flying Lotus, Black Madonna, and more.   Plus, we throw in a little R2J and new Slugabed, too.

PROTEST & ART:

Check out the Moogfest Music Line Up for more exclusive performances.

Various educational workshops from harps & guitar pedals, to video CGI will be on full display and hosted by many female experimentalists and icons including Paris from Grammy Winners KING, Nona Hendryx, Princess Nokia, Colleen, Marisa Anderson, Elysia Crampton.

Moor Mother's Black Quantum Futurism program will be making its Moogfest debut that explores race, futurism, history and the intersection of personal and political. Read more here: https://thump.vice.com/en_ca/article/moor-mother-explains-black-quantum-futurism

This year, one of Moogfest's Keynotes: CERN, MIT,  Michael Stipe Installation will be delivered by Physicist Dr. Kate Shaw (ATLAS @ CERN) who will speak on behalf of the Large Hadron Collider and will tackle questions angling towards what the LHC tells us about the future.  Are we safe? What is worrisome about the future as predicted by LHC? What do we expect the LHC will continue to tell us about the universe?
