Gebisa Ejeta at Clinton School 


The 2009 World Food Prize Laureate Gebisa Ejeta presents a lecture on global food security, Clinton School of Public Service, noon, free.

Funnywoman Kristin Key brings the chuckles, chortles, giggles, etc. at The Loony Bin, 8 p.m., $7. She'll be there through Saturday night.


The Ghost Town Blues Band brings a crunchy blend of electric blues styles — all with a funky flair — to Midtown Billiards, 12:30 a.m., $5. If tasteful, jazzy lounge tunes with a powerful lady singer are what's in order, then The Smittle Band is just the ticket, Dugan's pub, 9 p.m., free. Those punkabilly hellraisers Josh the Devil & The Sinners get rowdy at Flying DD, with pop weirdoes Frown Pow'r, 9 p.m., $5.

Monster Jam continues at the same time Saturday.


Everyone's favorite Daily Show commentator and sputtering, twitching rage junkie Lewis Black presents "In God We Rust," Walton Arts Center, 8 p.m., $40. Down in Spa City, Maxine's hosts The Year of the Tiger, Delicate Cutters and Ben Franks & The Bible Belt Boys, 8 p.m., $5 adv., $7 door.

Austin's Bart Crow Band plays a rock-infused take on singer/songwriter country at Stickyz, 18-and-older, 9 p.m., $10. For some entirely different sounds from Austin, Mobley's electro-laced pop and harmonies are reminiscent of Animal Collective, Vino's, 9 p.m., $8.
