DORK FOREST—Jackie Kashian is one funny lady. She nearly upstaged the amazeballs Maria Bamford last time they were at Helium. You have to be one crackerjack comedian to nearly out-funny Bamford. Prepare for some gut busting with tales of Kashian's wacky family and nerdy adventures. CF

OFF THE MAP
—Where All Maps End, the latest from lovely folk-poppers the Lower 48, is one of the most arrestingly charming records you'll hear all year. With infectious strumming and ear-candy melodies, they make the kind of songs that lodge themselves deep in your heart. NL
