If either summer camp or comic books were part of your past, and an affinity for comedy and live music is part of your present, then Captured Aural Phantasy Theater has a treat that will tickle the nostalgic part of your funny bone. Fresh from performing at Comic-Con, this theater troop is reopening its monthly gig at El Cid with its brand spankin' new show, Comic Book Summer Camp. Take a jaunt down nerd memory lane with re-enactments of your favorite old-school comic book stories set to multimedia projections of the book's original art. The leitmotif running through the evening? Summer camp, of course -- with camp-themed stories and an MC dressed as a counselor. Closing the show: The Noble Gasses, performing their instrumental surf music -- fitting the summery, nerdy theme. Fortunately, the camp theme stops at the refreshments -- we're told that while there will be food and beverages, they won't include sloppy joes or campfire-roasted weenies. Phew. El Cid, 4212 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake; Sun., Aug. 4, 7:30 p.m. doors, 8:30 p.m. show; $10. (323) 668-0318, capturedauralphantasy.com.
Sun., Aug. 4, 8:30 p.m., 2013
