720 Anderson Rd.

Check out this show at Davis’ mysterious underground venue (literally) tonight. The Davis bomb shelter, known for its intimate feel and tight reverb, should be quite the cool spot for a KDVS show. Get it? Check out the bands on Myspace for a preview.

Michael D. Abbot

Today, 7 p.m., free

John Natsoulas Gallery

From Nada Brahma to instrumental guitar – the Natsoulas Gallery is about as diverse as a UC Davis pamphlet photo. This Thursday’s free show at the Natsoulas Gallery will feature Michael D. Abbot, a Davis-area guitar instructor, instrumentalist and all-around nice guy. This is sure to be a laid back albeit impressive evening.

COMEDY / POETRY

Birdstrike Theater

Friday, 7 p.m., free

Wellman 126

Birdstrike Theater, Davis’ own comedy and improv group, is hosting its second event of the year tomorrow in Wellman. Wellman? Really? I know Wellman’s a great spot for after-hours studying and video game playing, but live performances are an entirely different realm. Not that this is a bad thing. Check out the event’s Facebook page for more information, or visit Birdstrike’s own website.

John Cleese

Saturday, 8 p.m., $22.50

Mondavi Center, Jackson Hall

Yes, John Cleese is coming to Jackson Hall on Saturday, and with him comes his mustache. When trying to think of something clever to say about him for this blurb, I looked him up on Wikipedia and saw a picture of him without that iconic stache, which surprised the hell out of me. It’s probably a generational thing.
