Are you a fan of Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me? Peter Sagal hosts the long-running, Peabody Award-winning NPR quiz show, and he's bringing his rotating panel of comedians, journalists and more to Austin. Do you have what it takes to be a contestant? Find out at tonight's show at Bass Concert Hall.

Longtime comedian Kathleen Madigan arrives in Austin on the heels of her fifth stand-up special, Bothering Jesus. She's won the American Comedy Award and the Phyllis Diller award for "Best Female Comedian," and she's written and produced Lewis Black's Root of All Evil on Comedy Central. 

Critics want to claim that rock and roll is dying, but not if the fellas in Greta Van Fleet have anything to say about it. Riffing off genre titans like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, but with newfound freshness, the Michigan-bred quartet performs at Stubb's tonight, sure to leave even more of a lasting impression with the femme-fronted, heavy rock fortitude of L.A.-based opener Dorothy.
