Tenacious D have announced they will perform and promote new web series Ghost Ghirls as part of the festivities at South By South West 2013. As reported by Complex, Tenacious D’s Jack Black, who cameos in the show, stated that SXSW is the perfect place to unveil Ghost Ghirls:
“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.”
Ghost Ghirls is a comedy that centers on two would-be female ghost busters who attempt to solve supernatural mysteries. Amanda Lund (Parenthood) and Maria Blasucci feature as the two leading ladies. Cameo appearances include Black, Jason Schwartzman (Bored To Death) and Jake Johnson (New Girl).
Tenacious D recently announced a series of Australian tour dates spanning the length and breadth of this fine land, recently announcing extra shows in Melbourne and Sydney after the initial dates in those cities sold out in minutes.
