Queer Queens of Qomedy
Carolina TheatreThe Queer Queens of Qomedy, an all-lesbian comedy troupe, presents four mighty queens: Founder and HBO regular Poppy Champlin will join Michele Balan, Jennie McNulty and Vickie Shaw. With their combined experience, the queens have done everything from TV, improv and documentaries to Olivia cruises and Last Comic Standing. A portion of the night's proceeds will go to SWOOP (Strong Women Organizing Outrageous Projects). For more info, visit or call 560-3030. —Megan Stein

The Bleeding Hearts, The BQs, The Needles
Slim's—Cramming a week's recommended allowance of rock into one evening, this triple bill features some fabulous good-time merchants and erstwhile beer salesmen. The Bleeding Hearts revive the catchy, bar-chord barroom bluster of Thin Lizzy and Cheap Trick with a cache of songs that insist on head-bobbing assent. The BQs feature Brian Quast (The Cherry Valence, Urge Overkill) and bassist Ash Bowie (Polvo, Helium) producing a lithe, chewy indie rock rumble. Wilmington's The Needles ooze attitude from Southern-fried garage-punk pores. Drink up at 10 p.m. for $3. —Chris Parker
