Happy month of love or whatever, you jerks.
We’re already a month into the new year. Holy shit, has life been weird. But at least there’s a lot of funny people hanging around Austin.
Keeping up with our monthly series, it’s time to unwrap some of the greatest gifts we could bestow upon you bastards: funny ass people.
These are the folks who’ll be doing the Valentine’s shows, hitting the stage to avoid a date, and every gig in between. Get out there, buy some tickets, drink a lot of hot toddies, be sweet and let’s all collectively hope we get to those spring flowers quickly.
And in no particular order…
