Here's A Video of Ira Glass Dancing Like a Fool at The Kessler. Because Why Not?

Perhaps this shouldn't be all that surprising.

For instance, we already knew that This American Life host Ira Glass was going to be in town this past Saturday night for an appearance at the Winspear. (We've since learned, too, that he was in fine spirits that night, dropping the word “cocksucker” no fewer than three times throughout the course of his talk.)

We knew too that local retro-crooner Kristy Kruger was going to be performing a show that same night across town at the Kessler Theater. Also, it's fairly well-known that Glass is a noted, longtime fan of Kruger's work, having featured her story and songs on his radio show no fewer than three separate times since 2005.

So, no, it's not altogether surprising to hear that Glass showed up at Kruger's show at the Kessler once his Winspear gig was finished.

What is somewhat surprising, however, is that Glass cut a mean rug throughout Kruger's set — and never more emphatically so than during Kruger's cover of “When The Saints Go Marching In,” during which Glass seems to execute both the Charleston and the Running Man.

See what we mean in the below-embedded video of Glass' Kruger's performance. You can spot Glass — graying hair, thick-framed glasses and all — on the right third of the screen throughout the clip. He's having a time, clearly. As is everyone else, though. To be fair.
