Looking for something to get into this weekend? Yes? Yes, of course you are. Here are some suggestions:
Tomorrow night (that’s Friday, in case you don’t read this until tomorrow and don’t look at the published date or something… maybe you haven’t had your morning cup of coffee yet, I don’t know. I’m not judging you… OK, I totally am, but for the purpose of this sentence, I’m not.) Wait… where was I?
Oh yeah, tomorrow night, Lightning Line and Helicity Montgomery present: Bicentenially Curious Comedy Night at the Sanctuary. Jason Fifi is headlining the event. Other comedians include Kurt Keller, Trey Brown, Daniel Kynard (and probably some others, but I’m only going by who’s listed on the event.) If you haven’t been to the Sanctuary, it’s a great venue located at 432 S. Goldthwaite St. in downtown Montgomery.
This week, Jason Fifi went on TV to talk about the event. Hopefully clicking here will take you directly to that video. If it doesn’t, then please know that I tried.
On Sunday, the Powell Brothers (of BPM and Distant Kin) are teaming up to host an open jam session at Head on the Door to help raise funds for the Montgomery Area Food Bank. That starts at 7 p.m., and it’s open to all musicians. More details on the event page. I also encourage you to check out the story in today’s Montgomery Advertiser about the event: “Jam session to benefit Food Bank.”
If you can’t make it to the event Sunday, but still want to help out, you can visit MontgomeryAreaFoodBank.org and donate online.
And if you happen to be in the Birmingham area on Sunday, you might want to mosey on down to WorkPlay to catch the Swedish band Truckfighters with Stoned Cobra in the theater. It’s going to be a great night of “stoner rock” for your ears. Seriously, you should go.
