Like the title of his 2006 album, Weird Al Yankovic is indeed Straight Outta Lynwood, not far from Orange County. So its fitting that, for a second year in a row, his Als Brain exhibit, an educational 3-D tour of the human brain, is stationed at the OC Fair. This year, hes also playing two shows. You might think that Weird Al is distinctly a product of the 80s, but hes kept up with the timeshe appeared on multiple episodes of avant-garde Adult Swim sketch show Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and is currently ranked No. 63 in terms of Twitter followers. Reports state that hes working on a Lady Gaga parodymeaning that Just Prance or Bad Bromance might not be far behind.
