Dane Terry live at Castle Rockmoore (part 1 of 2) from Matt Hall on Vimeo.

Sorry for the unexplained absence, but I was away late last week for a fun story I'm excited to write today. In the meantime, assuming you aren't an OSU student with tickets to Conan, allow me to recommend the second installment of Monday Night Live for your evening entertainment option.

The monthly comedy and music series, modeled after SNL, should have an official website, but all I can find is a Facebook event that bills piano man/funnyman Dane Terry as tonight's musical guest. (Catch him in action above.) Besides Terry's surely enjoyable antics, MNL will offer live and taped comedy sketches plus standup. Runs from 8:30-11 p.m. at Wild Goose Creative, 2491 Summit St.

Rockers Alberta Cross are at The Basement as well.
