ContraCostaTimes.com - Looks like it's a BFD week:
From manic monologists to punk music warhorses to barefoot divas, we've got it all. It's one of those weekends where the hardest part of making this list is deciding which items to leave off (like Diana Krall at Yoshi's, whose shows are all sold out anyway).
1. Mike Daisey -- This very funny monologist has been seen before at Berkeley Rep, working himself into a lather over lessons learned from his past. Now he's back with a series of decidedly less autobiographical shows, focusing on "Great Men of Genius," i.e., P.T. Barnum, Bertolt Brecht, Nikola Tesla and L. Ron Hubbard. This guy could talk about paste and I'd pay to watch it.
