The Grawlix Comedy Show, Ladysaurus Music Showdown, Steam-punk Opera, and James Blake

What to do this Weekend - 4/26 - 4/28/13

So it's that time again.. you know Thursday night, and I trying to figure out what the heck I would like to do this weekend. Fortunately I live in the awesome city of Denver and there are ALWAYS great local events going on. I do find that you do occasionally have to hunt to find the good ones, so I am going to help you out and let you know what super-awesomeness is going on.  

The Grawlix - $10 - 4/26/13

The Grawlix is a local comedy show (and web series) hosted the fourth Friday of the month at Bug Theater. The monthly show  featuring stand-up and sketch from comedy veterans Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy, as well as monthly special guests. This month's guest is the very funny Beth Stelling.

Steampunk Opera - Queen Victoria’s Floating Garden of Secrets and Natural Wonders -$20 - 4/27/13

The Denver Post descibes the show much better than I can - 

In this all new, all original dystopian steampunk operetta, Queen Victoria II is on her way to inspect HMS Annelid, a scientific sailing ship à la Charles Darwin’s HMS Beagle. Pirates in petticoats mutiny, sky pirates are shot from the air and must be rescued from the drink, and disguises and mistaken identities round out the intricacies of this homage to both Mozart and Gilbert & Sullivan.

Delightful Edwardian-inspired costumes and dazzling mermaid garb cobbled together with artifacts from another time offer a nod to the archaeological and scientific frenzy of the Victorian era. Clever mechanical sets and ornate gizmos that hilariously malfunction add layers of interest to the show.

This showcase performance is a fundraiser for Inventing Earth, a federally recognized non-profit focused on art-science collaboration.

James Blake $25.50 - 4/28/13 8 pm  

I'm not entirely sure how to classify James Blake's music, but I do know that I like it! I suppose that it falls into one of the indy genres.. The beats, harmonies, and melodies are hypnotic yet catchy. I've included a couple of videos below to check out.
