    Top Comedy Spot on Airport

    Yes, there's Sugar Water Purple on Wednesday nights – look, we reviewed their show right here. And this Thursday features Friends For Now, a daring supergroup of improv, followed by the sketchy antics of Pendulum. Friday brings Movie Riot and the laugh-inducing ladies of Loverboy and that Live at ColdTowne stand-up showcase hosted by Carina Magyar. Then there's Saturday, with Allison Webster and Irielle Wesley's "fever dream variety show" Why Am I Crying?, then Y'all We Asian, followed by a gathering of that mysterio-comedic Midnight Society. See website for more!

    Gallery Lucid: Mindscapes

    Elliot Rogers' first solo show offers "hypnotic spaces and surreal mindscapes which reflect his inner meditative visions and explore the connection between the self and the alien other." It's all trippy AF, in other words – and the closing party will be awash with live music and fancy libations.
    Closing reception: Sat., Jan. 5, 6pm
