The IMPROVidence Naughty and Nice Show
MacMilan 117 | 8 pm / 10 pm | Free!
Holidays are always chock-full of comic fodder. Celebrate the times you were nice and got presents under the tree at IMPROVidence’s Nice Show, starting at 8 pm. Then reminisce about all your naughty nights with jolly St. Nick with IMPROVidence again at 10 pm. But what’s happening from 9 to 10? A Hanukkah interlude:
Brown Stand Up Comics Presents: Dreidel to the Grave
MacMilan 117 | 9 pm | Free!
Sandwiched between IMPROVidence’s Naughty or Nice Show, the Brown Stand Up Comics promise to triple the holiday season laughs erupting out of MacMilan 117 tonight.
Speakeasy Sessions, volume IX
The Underground | 10 pm — 2 am | Free!
Brown Concert Agency is bringing out the bands tonight. Coming first out of the gate is We Should Worry, who describe themselves in this intriguing manner: “We’re like if Mumford & Sons got jiggy with Neutral Milk Hotel after a blind date set up by The Mountain Goats.” Enough said. Next up is Mz. Kitty, a group of punktastic females, and Kid Chocolate, a RISD rock band favorite. Last but not least, we have DJ 48 Lizards with a promise to bring electro-dubstep-jungle beats to the table and keep you dancing all night long.
Leeds Theatre | 8 — 10 pm | $7 (but check your mail boxes for a $2 coupon)
Sheila Callaghan’s modern riff on James Joyce’s Ulysses takes the stage tonight in Alexandra Keegan’s ’12 production. Follow Samantha Blossom through New York City as she struggles to connect with those around her and find herself during the journey.
The Poler Bears Present: All of the Lights
Art House Lounge, Harkness House | 8:30 — 9:30 pm | $3
“The Ivy League’s first and sassiest vertical dance group” brings you their final dance of the season. Come out and support them while you can. When those polar ice caps melt, who knows what’s going to become of them?
St. Anthony Hall Presents Vices and Virtues
King House — 154 Hope Street | 10 pm — 2 am | $4
There is apparently going to be “Champagne Elegance Upstairs” and “Debaucherous Dancing Downstairs.” Translation: Wear something snazzy, but don’t complain if it gets ripped off of you. Live music from the likes of Megalosaurus the Daffodil Killer will keep the dance floor packed.
Brown University Chorus Concert
Sayles Hall | 8 — 10 pm | $3
Ring in the holiday season with Handel’s Messiah. A 50 person chorus + a 25 person orchestra = holiday happiness.
