New peeps and new sketches will make the new space buzz with song parodies, adult humor, and weirdness starting at 9:30 p.m. Friday, September 27. It’s a case of “the later the better,” because this stuff really synchs with the indecent-hour biorhythms. Get advance tix for $15 at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/450482, or take your chances at the door for $20, for shows through Saturday, September 28. If you want to try a conversation, go for 602-214-4344. But honestly, we’ve already said it all.


Fri., Sept. 20, 9:30 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 21, 9:30 p.m.; Fri., Sept. 27, 9:30 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 28, 9:30 p.m., 2013
