Seth MacFarlane, the creator of the hit TV cartoons Family Guy and American Dad, will present music from his 2012 Grammy-nominated recording Music Is Better Than Words at the Highline Ballroom, on Wednesday, December 21 at 8pm and at the Blue Note on Friday, December 23 at 1am.

At both venues, MacFarlane will perform with a big band conducted by Emmy Award-winning composer, producer, arranger and conductor Joel McNeely.
