Local comic Matt Markman has opened for Anthony Cools and George Wallace, but on Oct. 17, he’ll return to where his career began—Boomer’s Bar. Markman is recording his comedy album, My Name’s Not Mark, during two shows at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Go support and you might hear your giggles on CD. MattMarkman.com.
SABINA STEPS IN
Sabina Kelley is a very tattooed, very busy woman. In July, the former Jubilee! showgirl and Best Ink judge covered for Claire Sinclair in Pin Up. Now she pops in to the Plaza’s burlesque show Limelight Oct. 16-18. Perhaps her star power will extend this “limited engagement.”
A PARTY THAT HAS IT ALL
The Artistic Armory celebrates one year of event-throwing with its biggest bash yet: Nightmare on Art Street Part II on Oct. 18. Live music and art from top local talent will be on display in and outside of the gallery, and Abuela’s Tacos will be available for purchase. Yes, tacos. Facebook.com/TheArtisticArmory.
PLAYS ON FILM
Oct. 17-26 at Onyx Theatre, Poor Richard’s players will stage a theatrical version of Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller Rope, a 1948 film based on a play by Patrick Hamilton. If that’s not inception, we don’t know what is. OnyxTheatre.com.
