Chris Rock, Rap Rock, Mexican Rock, Etc.
Chris Rock is back! Again! Exciting! Also, some more weekend stand-up comedy, and an even more diverse palette of musical entertainment (New Mexico rap/rock?), all after the jump. Don't forget to tip your editors.
* BJ Novak @ Lisner Auditorium -- "Student tickets for the show will cost $12 and can be purchased at the GW Ticketmaster in the Marvin Center. A limited number of tickets for the general public are available for $20 and are being sold through the Lisner box office." [GW Hatchet]
* Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra @ GMU -- "For this performance, the orchestra welcomes trumpeter/actor/singer Byron Stripling in what promises to be a very special night of music. Stripling, artistic director of the Columbus Jazz Orchestra, earned his stripes as lead trumpeter and soloist with the Count Basie Orchestra and has also played and recorded extensively with the bands of Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Dave Brubeck, Lionel Hampton, Clark Terry, The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and The Carnegie Hall Jazz Band." [George Mason]
* Chris Rock @ Lyric Opera House -- "The New York Times has called Chris Rock 'probably the funniest and smartest comedian working today,' and with three Emmys, two Grammys, a best-selling book, any number of blockbuster movies and a TV series debuting in 2005, it just might be true." [Lyric Opera House]
* Molotov @ 9:30 Club -- "The rap-metal band Molotov formed in 1995 in Mexico City, comprising singer/guitarist Tito Fuentes, bassists Mickey "Huidos" Huidobro and Javier de la Cueva, and a drummer known as La Quesadillera. By 1996, Paco Ayala had replaced de la Cueva and Randy "El Gringo Loco" Ebright became the band's new drummer. Molotov's 1997 debut LP Donde Jugaran Las Ninas? was a hit with both Spanish- and English-speaking audiences, earning a Grammy nomination for best Latin rock-alternative performance." [9:30 Club]
* There is nothing to do on Sunday.
