THE MELT GOES ON
Few local comedy shows in recent years have been as consistently excellent and almost unfeasibly fun as Meltdown Comics' monthly Friday-night lineup in the shop's back-gallery space. The "Comedy Meltdown" banner took a breather a few months back when original booker Linda Pine moved on to pursue other projects, but new host/organizer (and damn funny stand-up in his own right) Jonah Ray has grabbed the reins and hit the ground running. This week's second installment of the revamped show, now called Jonah Ray's Meltdown , boasts a mighty lineup, with Dana Gould, Mary-Lynn Rajskub, Laura Kightlinger, Hugh Moore and Steve Agee. Outstanding comedy, brought to you in an intimate space for a measly $8 cover that includes free beer, plus the chance to get your geeky shopping in before the show? What more could you possibly ask for in a night out?! Maybe some food? -- covered. A surprise food truck will stop by for tasty vittles delivery. Rad.
