Let's see ... looks like a fun weekend. First, I took Friday off so I can stay out all night ... well, later than usual anyway. Thursday, I'll get to see
On Friday, barring anything more interesting, the show at
(50 Chestnut St.)
On Saturday night, come hell, high-water, my-best-friend-packing-to-move-hundreds-of-miles-next-week, or my-girlfriend-returning-from-a-week-long-trip, I will go see

Oddly, over at
(50 Chestnut St.)
starting around 10. What would ordinarily be a wild show will probably be much more tame.
This was going to be on Friday but it got moved to today instead.
As of a few months ago,
(16 Gibb Street)
still has open mic poetry downstairs starting around 9:30.
Tonight from 8 to 10 is an
Open-Mic Comedy Night
(389 Gregory St.)

The great acoustic cover soloist
will be at the new
(125 White Spruce Blvd., across from MCC)
from 8 to midnight.
