Why only original works? “We believe it helps grow our city’s culture. It encourages people to reveal something about themselves. It takes brains, hard work and balls.” We’ll drink to that. This week’s host is Lucas of the soon-to-be-retired The Dukes are Dead. Tuesdays. Sign up begins around 8:30 p.m., performances kick off at 9 p.m. and end at 12:30 a.m. Free. 21 and up.
