Waters at 9:30 Club

John Waters will be yapping at the masses Tuesday night. He'll do a stand-up comedy routine and an audience question-and-answer session at the 9:30 Club. He'll riff on pop culture, politics and probably Michael Jackson (again). Last year, he took questions for 45 minutes. Charm City's Mary Prankster will open with a solo acoustic act.

The all-ages show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25. The 9:30 Club is at 815 V St. N.W. Call 202-265-0930 or visit

Funk Box: Soft Parade

If it weren't for the heroin, Jim Morrison would have turned 61 this month. Hard to imagine.

But, you can try tomorrow night when Soft Parade, a touring Doors tribute band from New Jersey, plays at the Funk Box. The group has been at it for almost 15 years.

The show starts at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 the day of the show. The Funk Box is at 10 E. Cross St. Call 410-625-2000 or visit

Free beer

The Monkton Community Art Center is giving away microbrews from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. tonight. The tastings include local staples such as Clipper City and Wild Goose and other brews, including Flying Fish from New Jersey and Wolavers from Vermont.

We suspect they're hoping a few libations will get people into the spirit of holiday spending. Their gallery of crafts by American artists will be open. Live jazz will be playing, and all purchases will be wrapped free.

The event is free. The Monkton Community Art Center is at 1901 Monkton Road in Monkton. Call 410-472-0470.
