Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 71. Pence Hence

In case you've had your head in a hole for the past month, the Lilac Festival ends this Sunday.

Jimmie "JJ" Walker (you know, from Good Times) will be doing his stand-up comedy at Comix Cafe (3450 Winton Pl.) Thursday at 8:30 p.m., and assorted times throughout the weekend.

Likewise, Rob Becker's Defending the Caveman continues through this Sunday at the Auditorium Center (875 Main St E.)

Even better, Mump & Smoot in Something. Mump & Smoot are apparently a couple clowns who are the reason you are afraid of clowns. They're at Geva's NextStage (75 Woodbury Blvd.) through May 28.

Tonight's good bet at Monty's Krown (875 Monroe Ave.) is Watkins & The Rapiers.

In the mean time, Milestones (170 East Ave.) is hosting Freetime Magazine's Most Popular Band Contest with Anguish versus Crush.

Johnny's Smoke Free Bar (1382 Culver Rd.) has Croonin' Kurt & His Hi-Geared Combo, an entertaining rockabilly band. So far two visits to the place have only showed a little promise. It seems just a lot of people over 40 think it's a great place.
