Drinking With Ian kicks off new season tonight

As we wrote about in the most recent issue of City Pages, tonight marks a few milestones for longstanding cable access show Drinking With Ian: The show will move to a considerably smaller, more intimate space for its new season at Donny Dirk's Zombie Den, and the show will be broadcast live for the first time in its eight year history.

"It's the show we should have done in the first place--it always should have been live," Ian told me in an interview. "Because a lot of it gets lost in translation, you know, you have this raucous event that happens, but then when you put it on video tape and you edit it down, even touching it at all, you become removed from it. Luckily, we're at a point where technology has caught up with us, so once we could do it live and it wouldn't cost a billion dollars, we were like, let's give that a shot."
