I Know What I’m Doing — and Other Lies I Tell Myself: Dispatches from a Life Under Construction
Join comedian Jen Kirkman for a special book release show! Unlike a typical stand-up show, this is a night of Jen’s funny, personal, and cringe-worthy stories—aka “dispatches from a life under construction”—including tales of an awkward kid, teen, young, and now-technically-adult Jen. You’ll hear stories that aren’t in the book, followed by a reading from the book and a Q&A. Ask anything! Except don’t ask what the meaning of life is—Jen knows but she’s not gonna tell you. You figure it out.
Books will be for sale, and Jen will be available to sign them (and anything else) after the show.

While Gad Elmaleh is arguably the most widely known and beloved comedian in Europe, he has now embarked on the newest chapter of his career: breaking through to the American audience. For this, he has crafted, Oh My Gad, a new stand-up show entirely in English, building upon the jokes that made him famous overseas and including new observations from his life in America.
Gad debuted his first all English show in a sold-out ten-night run at Joe’s Pub at The Public last year, introducing his singular humor and insight to a new audience. With Oh My Gad, he will continue the enormous task of not just speaking a new language fluently, but of using it with the timing, nuance and syntax required for great stand-up comedy. Says The Guardian, “The chance to see Elmaleh spreading his wings in the U.S. is not one to be missed.”

With over 1 million albums sold, 3 Juno Awards and a Grammy nomination, Tegan and Sara’s career has deftly balanced critical acclaim with an ever-increasing foothold in the mainstream. Celebrated for their unique ability to amalgamate different genres and cultural forces, this is a band that can perform equally comfortably alongside Katy Perry or Neil Young, Taylor Swift or The Killers. Tegan and Sara are preparing to release their much-anticipated 8th studio album on Warner Bros. Records later this year. - See more at: http://www.teragramballroom.com/event/1114097-tegan-sara-los-angeles#sth...

Finnish cello-based heavy rockers Apocalyptica want to be remembered as the band that brought balls back to heavy metal and the band that did so in a unique way. Since its inception, the band has been mining the classical form and structure, coming up with something totally unpredictable and utterly unforgettable. Twenty years into an inimitable and formidable career, they are still reinventing themselves and finding new sources of inspiration. That's not easy to do!
