    LEGO Batman is back and with even less parents than the last time!

    That’s not exactly true, Batman (Will Arnett) has surrogate father Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) by his side and his trusty ward Robin (Michael Cera) this time around for a true Batman Family adventure.

    Commissioner Barbara Gordon aka Batgirl (Rosario Dawson) rounds out the good guy cast.

    Batman’s nemesis? Of course it is The Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and a slew of familiar rogues.

    Robot Chicken veteran Chris McKay directs this hilarious animated feature that bridges the gap between the animated LEGO DC Universe and 2014’s The LEGO Movie.

    The LEGO Batman Movie, while obviously riding the success of the first film, also sets itself apart and is more than a sequel. Primarily basing itself in DC locations Gotham and The Phantom Zone, this is a decidedly DC Comics Batman movie. When rattling off a list of super villains in his cadre: Bane, Clayface, Two-Face, Riddler, The Joker is asked if he was making some of them up! Maybe he was, but this movie does introduce Condiment Man to LEGO canon, armed with both a Ketchup and a Mustard gun! OOOH, it stains!

    HOW WAS YOUR NO THANKS! SHOW AT BLACK CAT D.C. ON INAUGURATION DAY?

     

    T: It was great! And necessary on a horrific night, so a little bittersweet.

     

    WHAT IS CASA RUBY & ONE DC?

    T: Casa Ruby is an LGBTQ shelter in Washington, DC.

     

    K: Homelessness is a problem in every major US city but people don’t consider how unsafe many shelters are for queer people. There is a necessity for shelter from the elements but also places where you will be respected, and cis and straight people might take that for granted sometimes.

     

    G: ONE DC is a grassroots organization organizing around fighting displacement and supporting people who live in these communities in our area who are being displaced, their organizing principles enable people affected to speak for themselves.

    5 Questions with Lord Bendover of The Upper Crust at Do617

     

    YOU MUST GET THIS QUESTION A LOT, BUT HAS ANY BAND MEMBER CURED THEIR ILLS BY LEECHING?

     

    All the gentlemen of the Upper Crust are regularly bled as a kind of preventive maintenance, usually employing leeches; but in fact they often just bleed spontaneously as a result of hemophilia occasioned by good breeding, exacerbated by their natural clumsiness.
