Jack Black‘s band with Kyle Gass, Tenacious D, is confirmed to both perform a live concert, and promote the new web series Ghost Ghirls during this year’s SXSW festival in Austin next month. Tenacious D has partnered with Shine America for the event.
Shine America produced and is distributing the web comedy series, Ghost Ghirls to Yahoo! Screen this spring. The web series follows two inept female ghostbusters who try to solve mysteries of the supernatural variety, often times in a hilarious fashion. It stars Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci as the two paranormal investigators. It also features great cameos from comedian Molly Shannon, Jason Schwartzman, New Girl star Jake Johnson, and Jack Black. It was created by Jeremy Konner, along with the stars Amanda Lund and Maria Blasucci.
Jack Black released a statement that said,
“There is no better place to unleash the beast that is Ghost Ghirls on an unsuspecting audience. Austin knows how to rock, and how to party, and how to marvel at the supernatural forces that inhabit our world. I’m so proud of this show, and I will be there with bells on, to bask in the glory.”
The event, hosted by Yahoo! will take place March 13th at SXSW.
