Dave Hill's Witch Taint: The Black Metal Chronicles
Fri. April 7 | Comedian Dave Hill — who co-created the Phil Anselmo-starring Karate Kid-inspired series Metal Grasshopper — turns his lengthy email correspondence with a Norwegian black metal record label into a live show, with Phil Costello and a live performance from Hill's fictional (or is it?) black metal band Witch Taint. At 8 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.


Dina Martina: Soft Palate, Fallen Arches
:Mon. April 10 | Dina Martina's drag performance is steeped in coloring outside-the-lines makeup, too-tight outfits on her ballpark figure, intentionally flouting taboos, sly malapropisms, goofy songs and more — all of which made a fan out of John Waters. At 8 p.m. at Cafe Istanbul.
