This writer for Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell has appeared as a standup on both Conan and Letterman. He’s also been a guest on a bunch of sitcoms, including Seinfeld (because he’s no damn twentysomething). This Chicago native is versatile, but he’s also funny as heck and is not afraid to be satirical, philosophical, and political. He absolutely feeds on hypocrisy, and did we mention he’s funny as heck? It’s true. $10 ADV - $12 DOS (Thurs); $13 ADV - $15 DOS (Fri & Sat)

Oliver Payne’s Chill Out

Thu., March 5, 8 p.m.
phone 313-832-6622

Payne, who won a fancy prize at one of the Venice Biennales for his colorful installation work, is hosting an intriguing performance at MOCAD tonight, where it seems like all this chap (he’s young, and British) is doing is playing a 1990s release by the KLF, perhaps like that one Sun City Girls show where it looked like they were going to perform a John Coltrane record but people showed up and they sat around, on stage, while the record played on a turntable. We’re not saying that will happen tonight; we do not know what will happen. But if you show up with an open mind in the mood for fun and maybe even transcendence, you should totally go. If you just want to be snarky and huff about whether something is art or not, just stay home and hit refresh on the Gawker newsfeed instead. $5

Axis: Sova

Thu., March 5, 9 p.m.-2 a.m.
phone 313-551-3158
partystoreproductions@gmail.com

with the Hamtramck Music Fest pairs Chicago’s Axis: Sova with Detroit’s Feelings and Jenny Jr. A:S will be playing tracks off the brand new album, Early Surf, just released on Ty Segall’s hilariously-titled God? Records, a subsidiary of Drag City. Axis: Sova is a solo, guitar-based project that throws heavy riffs together with drum machines, piling on fuzz and flange and distortion and wah-wah with occasional phasing keyboards and reverbed-to-hell vocals. Song titles include “Ask Me About My Smell” and “Dictator of a Flower.” This will most likely be an awesome show; get there early. $10
