Photo: Van Dyke Parks at the Earl, Sat., Feb. 18

If you missed Van Dyke Parks' show at the Earl with Gentleman Jim Cooper on Saturday night (Feb. 18), you missed out on one of the more peculiar, and one of the more hilarious shows to come through EAV in a while. And his performance of "Orange Crate Art" was epic!

This guys should do stand-up! ... And when's the last time you saw a damn grand piano at the Earl?

According to the show's promoter, Alex Weiss of OK Productions, Parks played the same piano that Stevie Wonder played the last time he did a show in Atlanta. It's also the same piano that Jerry Lee Lewis plays on in Memphis every May — his third favorite piano, actually.

Who knew?
