A quick guide to what's happening in nightlife each week

Strickly bidness

TOMMY DAVIDSON is still around, dammit, and he's coming to the Funny Farm Comedy Club Thurs.-Sat., Feb. 26-28.

The only thing I remember about his post-"In Living Color" career was that he wore a UGA hat in the not-so-seminal film Strictly Business, which made him pretty cool in my book back then. But since those days, he's been relatively active in showbiz, starring in Booty Call, Bamboozled and the multicultural triumph Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls.

These young kids these days, what with their Jim Breuer and Chris Tucker, just don't appreciate my man Tommy's earnest, taking-it-back-to-the-streets approach. You know what I'm talkin' 'bout? Funny Farm, 608 Holcomb Bridge Road, Roswell. 770-817-HAHA. www.funnyfarmcomedyclub.com. (Andrew Stewart)

Oh come all ye fancy lads ...

... to LAGER LOUT'S NIGHT OUT Sat., Feb. 28. Atlanta's anglophiles and hipsters should feel mighty joyful and triumphant these days, with all the Britpop/indie nights happening all week, all over town. This one should be extra-nice, as the Crescent Room has not been known to let a lad down, and Jay Herron from 99X and Iain from Sorted Entertainment are spinning. Now sing, choirs of anglophiles, sing with exultations! Glory to Thom Yorke in the highest. Dominum, Dominum, Amen. Crescent Room, 1136 Crescent Ave., 404-875-5252. www.thecrescentroom.com. (AS)


On Sat., Feb. 28, Abstract Logic Recordings and Bad Seed Creations have coalesced the best local drum 'n' bass talent into one night dubbed RAPID FIRE. Expect sick sizzle and culture collisions as every facet of drum 'n' bass — paranoid tech-step to ruff 'n' ragga rollers — could be showcased by a lineup including production trio Evol Intent, local trailblazer Hazeus and eclectric selecta Weatherman, along with Subconscious, Serve 3, Moka & Protoculture, Nori Frances, Kysa, G. Cross and MCs Arion Lee and MdoubleOK. Masquerade, 695 North Ave., 404-577-8178. www.masq.com. (Tony Ware)

My name is ...

With a name like "Vinyl Boy," you might wonder what kind of events this promoter throws, but have no doubt, VB Productions is all about the ladies. Hence, LADIES NIGHT OUT, Sat., Feb. 28, where females get in free before 2 a.m. to enjoy the sounds of local DJs including Sublime, Xceed, Warhead, Scion and others, spinning progressive trance, house, drum 'n' bass and more. Globe Theatre, 1599-D Memorial Drive, 404-371-0222. www.globetheatreatlanta.com. (TW)
