Amateur Drag Attack

Claws may come out at this competition of amateur drag talent. You know queens thrive when they’re grabbing attention on stage, so you better come and show your support.

Good ‘n Country Saturday Night

Chill out to some covers of country and bluegrass songs. You’ll feel like you’re spending a relaxing night under the stars, even though you’ll really be inside a bar. | Saturday, Jan. 25, 8 pm. $5. The El Bar, 1356 N. Front St. facebook.com

Night Drive

Music up, reality off. Drive into the darkness to these synthwave and nudisco songs designed to help you disassociate from reality in a fast car.

Civics on Tap: Philthadelphia

If you’re just hanging out in Center City all day, you probably don’t have a sense of how dirty this city can get.

Tattooed Momedy

A monthly comedy showcase of some funny ass people from Philly and beyond.

Plus, there’s $1 tacos here, so how could you even dare to think about passing this up? | Tuesday, Jan. 28, 8 pm. Free. Tattooed Mom, 530 South St. facebook.com

The Wire Quizzo

This TV show has long been considered one of the best of all time. Do some detective work in unearthing all the little bits of information you need to know for this trivia.

We’re feeling a little funny. You’ll feel it all kick in once comedians China Cat Jubilee and Damon Dietz take the stage with Thomas Davis and Friends, who will lead us on a vivid musical journey. | Tuesday, Jan. 28, 7:30 pm. $8. Connie’s Ric Rac, 1132 S. 9th St. facebook.com

Heavy Metal Karaoke

Your parents always said this kind of music had no lyrics – just jumbled sound. Prove them wrong by showing you know every word to every damn Slayer song.
