MON 5/18: Stuff Party, New Comedy Night, Rock

It's a slim pickings for cheapness tonight, but there are two good options. I'd go to either one of these and have a good time.

I was going to list the $12 show at the Middle East since it's the ex-singer from The Stranglers (with Corin Ashley and Yoni Gordon opening), but then I realized it wasn't the Stranglers singer that did the classic material. It could still be a really good acoustic show.


MON 5/18

"Guy Issue Party"
at Game On!, 4 Yawkey Way, Boston (Fenway Park)

Okay, "Stuff Magazine" apparently no longer does 'stuff' exclusively '@ Night' -- but a lot of it is at night. Go have some free drinks and apps, and you might get a free cigar too.

Ladies, please don't be scared away from the party. Guys want to see you there. You may want to even see them.

Everyone who wants to go needs to RSVP, and you might want to show up early if you want to get in. There could be a long line if you wait too long.

MON 5/18

8pm to 10pm
Greater Boston Alternative Comedy Sleepover
Feat: Robby Roadsteamer, Chris Coxen, Mehran, others
at Cantab Underground, 738 Mass Ave, Cambridge (Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

This is the first of a new comedy night that aims to yuck it up with more edge than mainstream stand-up. From Roadsteamer and Coxen, you can expect just about anything to happen, but it'll be more than comedians doing stand-up routines.

The plan is to have about 5 acts per show. I didn't see who else is performing tonight, but these guys make me laugh a lot. Take a look at Robby's latest 3-part YouTube production on his site, and you'll get an idea of other possible performers.

It's free, but there's a chance that a donation will be suggested at some point in the night...

MON 5/18

Pants Yell!, Suburban Kids with Biblical Names, Liechtenstein
at Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, Cambridge (near Central Sq)
FREE / 21+

I don't know what's wrong with me. I had this gig on my radar a couple weeks ago, and it fell through the cracks. Local indie-poppers Pants Yell! are playing with a couple Swedish acts. You never know which of these bands from Goteborg are going to blow up, so think about...
