8 p.m., Side Splitters Comedy Club. $8-$12.
There's not much happening in terms of community events this week, so we're going to focus on local entertainers. Spanky Brown's a BET Comic View veteran, preacher's kid ("Even God knows I'm funny"), and repeat casualty in the battle of the sexes with a buffet of comic targets, something for everyone.

Mic Harrison and the High Score
10 p.m., Preservation Pub. $5.
Mic Harrison makes unvarnished country rock, telling stories of lives lived hard, with a guardedly optimistic take on the vicissitudes of blue-collar life and peppered with dashes of ribald humor. And he rocks.

Local ‘90s bar favorites Magpie Suite reconvene for one night only!
