THEATER: Expect to see "full-frontal puppet nudity" at Avenue Q, the hit Broadway musical about real life in New York City, as told by a cast of people and puppets through a hilariously irreverent and risque Tony-winning book and score.
7 p.m. // The Orpheum Theatre (1192 Market Street) // $30-100
READING: Celebrate the launch of a new quarterly reading series, Clattering Loom, which will ruminate on the approach of each new season, digging into the spirit of change through a particular phrase. Tonight's event explores the Japanese phrase "Mono No Aware", featuring readers Charlie Getter, Valerie Chavez, Michael Warren, Grant Nicole De Ayora, and Jonathan I. Hirsch, with a special performance by The Devotionals.
8 p.m. // Viracocha (998 Valencia Street) // $5
COMEDY: It's your last chance to catch a master of dry wit and delivery, Kevin Nealon, the best part of Weeds, as far as we're concerned. Nealon's been here all weekend and performed to two sold-out audiences last night.
8 p.m. // Cobb’s Comedy Club (915 Columbus Avenue) // $27.50
