If you missed the chance to see the self-proclaimed "beach goth" originals when they were in town last year, be sure to hit up The Growlers' show at 191 Toole (191 Toole Ave.) on Friday, March 11. Their honky-tonk-meets-garage-punk tunes kind of sound like a hybrid between The Clash and Ricky Nelson, but they're still "unmistakable," according to the Rialto Theatre's website. Tickets are available for $22 through the Rialto. Go to www.rialtotheatre.com.
Hailed as the lost member of Monty Python by none other than John Cleese, British comedian Eddie Izzard has made his own unique place in stand-up comedy.
