John Roderick & Friends at the Showbox, 29 October

John Roderick and friends will host an evening at The Showbox. A night of music and comedy, starring Merlin Mann, John Hodgman, Scott Simpson and Jonathan Coulton.

What to expect? "It's going to be like Sammy, Frank, and Dean at the Sands in '63, except with more classy dames, more roulette, more Lincoln Continentals, hotter tunes, funnier jokes, and better suits."

Tickets for this 29 October show are on sale now.
