Seth Myers came to our attention as the head writer of SNL, and the host of Weekend Update, anchoring the famous desk for a record-breaking 8 seasons! In 2014 he moved behind a different desk, taking over Jimmy Fallon's Late Night Show. The show has since flourished into appointment viewing for anyone interested in cutting political commentary and pop culture riffing, with the 'A Closer Look' segment becoming a particular favorite.

It's been over 20 years since Apocalyptica first put forth their unholy alliance of metal and classical music in the form of debut album Plays Metallica by Four Cellos. The Finnish cello metal band formed with the intention of playing Metallica and other heavy metal band covers, but each subsequent release featured more and more original music until fourth album Reflections announced their fully-fledged status as original artists.

It now hosts dozens of concerts and comedians every year.
