›› Torn the latest exhibit from SCAD-grad and multidisciplinary artist Brandon Sadler is, essentially, his personal diary. The exhibit uses some of Sadler’s own poetry alongside Kendrick Lamar lyrics, symbols, and text to explore the artist’s personal demons. Sadler’s work can be seen on giant murals around town. This time around he sketches the fear, depression, and anxiety common to the modern age. 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Notch8 Gallery.


›› Breaking Bad’s Badger — better known as Matt Jones — and his improv partner Dave Hill join the Dad’s Garage ensemble for the weekend. In the first half of the comedy show, Jones and Hill improvise with the regulars from Dad’s. In the second half, they perform their traveling two-man improv show. 10:30 p.m. at Dad’s Garage.
