Love ‘Em All With K. Michelle At House Of Blues, Discuss Art And Gentrification At The Wild Detectives And Dance Your Ass Off With Steve Aoki At The Bomb Factory.

When the Dallas Comedy Festival kicks off, it’ll feature its biggest booking since 2013 when Keegan-Michael Key performed.

And that’s because the very talented Sasheer Zamata is headlining the four-day comedy festival that’s scheduled for March 28-31 at the Dallas Comedy House. Co-headlining the event with her will be improv group 3Peat out of Chicago.

The festival this year is set to be the biggest one to date. This year, festival organizers also booked the help of Independent Bar & Kitchen’s Regal Room to provide a third stage for performs to dish out the laughs.

We’re pretty stoked that Zamata is going to be in town for those dates and we’re excited for the jokes she’ll be telling. But again, that is still a few weeks away. And until then, we’ll keep entertained with plenty of things to do, as you can see below. — Obed Manuel

Steve Aoki at The Bomb Factory
The EDM powerhouse in here. And there are still a few GA tickets available as of publication time. How that’s possible, we don’t know, but you’d better act fast. — OM

The Dead Milkmen at Trees
The Philadelphia punk rock band formed in the late ’70s and rocked it through the ’80s and part of the ’90s.
