    Guzu Gallery: Binge

    That Vince Torres and his astonishing cohort of creatives have garnered more graphic goodness for those Guzu walls, with 26 artists paying tribute to shows from the small screen, with stylish renditions of characters and settings from television’s past and present. Featuring homages by Chet Phillips, Tessa Morrison, Killian Glenn, Half-Human, Nina Sanchez, and more. Where's your fandom at, baby? It's probably right here, right now.

  • Music

    Kevin Galloway, Malford Milligan Band, Johnny Nicholas (6:00)

    Austin’s soul, blues, and gospel voice-of-truth, whose career goes back to adventurous Eighties alternative outfit Stick People and Nineties rock breakouts Storyville, added another brick to his indomitable discography this fall with October’s Life Will Humble You. The Euro-Americana chart-topping LP, featuring a near-spiritual version of Charlie Rich’s “Feel Like Going Home” and several Stephen Bruton cuts, finds Milligan linking with Dutch player/producer Jack Hustinx. Before February’s European tour, Milligan throws down at his regular South Lamar stomping grounds.

    The Santaland Diaries

    Does it return? Of course it returns – this show is more evergreen than a forest of Christmas trees. David Sedaris' outlandish tale of a (oh, shall we say disgruntled) Macy’s elf jingles to life again in this latest incarnation, with that costumed Crumpet waxing snarktastic on the talent it takes to juggle tinsel, tearful tots, and not-so-sober Santas during what's hailed as the most wonderful time of the year. J. Robert Moore – the bright star of Zach's one-man show Buyer and Cellar a couple years ago – plays Crumpet, and Nat Miller directs, so we reckon this year's holiday-skewering is doubleplusgood to go. But does our reviewer think so, too?
    Through Dec. 30. Wed.-Thu., 7:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 6:30 & 9pm. $40 and up.

    Underground Comedy

    This newly revitalized basement venue is dedicated to "bringing the best in alternative comedy with shows seven nights a week." For instance: Monday starts things off with that sprightly revue of optimism called Fuck This Week, there's Rob Gagnon's unpredictable Sandbox on Tuesdays, the all-female comedy showcase called Garage on Wednesdays, and find out where some of these stand-ups come from via the My Block showcase this Thursday. Then, on Friday, the Battle of the Sketches beings anew – and don't miss the inarguable power of Sure Thing hosted by Duncan Carson and Brendan K. O’Grady. Saturday's got an A-Team of historical figures (Leonardo da Vinci! Harriet Tubman! Carl Sagan!) brought back to life and saving the day as Clone Squad, followed by some story-centered Sweet Lightning, and – see website for more.
