Nigerian Spam Scam Scam So a dude (who just so happened to also star in the '80s classic Ski School) totally wrote back to one of those "Nigerian princes" and then documented the back-and-forth with him. And then staged an award-winning, hilarious one-man play based on it. (Runs June 12, 20, and 22.)

Roaring Nights The first of three party-with-live-music-and-booze-in-the-LA Zoo nights is indie rock-centric, which means, yep, indie rock cover band Black Crystal Wolf Kids will be there. (Editor's Note: that's Jeff from Thrillist's band. But they're really, actually good. And even if you're not a fan, there's still the whole booze-in-the-LA Zoo thing.)
