COMEDY—Beth Stelling is a blowsy, sardonic LA-by-way-of-Chicago comic with a twisted take on femininity. She regularly tops industry "comedians to watch" lists, and tonight she headlines the stalwart local comedy showcase Funny Over Everything, alongside Barbara Holm, Gabe Dinger, Sean Jordan, and Bryan Cook.

MUSIC—Alex Schaaf's Yellow Ostrich hatched into a full-grown band some time ago, and their latest Carl Sagan-inspired album, Cosmos, is a starlit, astronomically lovely listen driven by melody and rhythms that evoke the wide-open spaces of the heavens. Arrive in time for the adventurous, crafty Pattern Is Movement, and Sub Pop's latest signing, the UK primary-color pop darlings in Thumpers. NL
