[TOP PICK] 9:30 pm ($5): Riki Lindhome (Last House on the Left) and Kate Micucci (Scrubs) deliver an evening of comedic songs in this sold-out-of-seats show (though if you’re okay with standing, come and enjoy), including their hits Pregnant Women Are Smug and F*ck You, as musical duo Garfunkel & Oates
