    Andrew Dismukes

    Says here that the Chronicle described this Dismukes as "Extremely Fucking Hilarious." Well, yeah, because it's true. Then the punk (he's only 22, FFS) ditched Austin and moved to New York and now he's writing for Saturday Night Live. Because he's extremely fucking hilarious. (We were right, see? We win!) And now he's back in town for a week at Cap City. Do yourself a favor, comedy-lovers, and don't miss what this guy does with a stand-up stage.
    April 25-28. Wed.-Thu., 8pm; Fri.-Sat., 7:30 & 10pm. $12-23.

    Carina Magyar

    Oh god, we loooove this woman. For any number of reasons, tbh, but mostly, especially in this context, because she's just … so … fucking … FUNNY. And like that's not enough? Listen, Andrew Murphy opens this terrific night of laughs.

    Clint Black, Kody West

    As country’s pendulum finally swings back to a more traditional sound, thank Clint Black and the “Class of ’89.” That year’s bow from the Katy-reared Texan, Killin’ Time, set the bar for Nashville’s new sound, and Black remained true to his sharp songwriting through 2015’s On Purpose. DFW Red Dirt troubadour Kody West opens with debut LP Green.

    Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Honey Made

    Beginning with Lenny Kravitz and playing journeyman saxophonist/flutist to jazz (John Scofield), funk (Fred Wesley), hip-hop (Blackalicious), and rock mainstays (Allman Brothers), Karl Denson embodies modern honk. Acid jazz in his Greyboy Allstars and jazz/fonk in Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, the 61-year-old San Diegan blew his way to the top. His 2010/2011 tribute to Sticky Fingers led to his replacing late Lubbock legend Bobby Keys in the Rolling Stones.
