Chelsea Peretti

The Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival has just announced the addition of Chelsea Peretti to its line-up. Peretti, who is perhaps best known for her work as a writer on the show “Parks and Recreation,” is also notable for her role as the voice of Crystal Peppers on Adult Swim’s “China, IL” and for her work on her “Comedy Central Presents” special.

This is the first Moontower Comedy and Oddity Festival after having been set in motion in 2011 by the Paramount Theatre. The festival will take place April 25-28 in Austin. Tickets can be purchased for individual performances as well as festival badges and VIP badges at moontowercomedyfestival.com.

Common Grounds

In addition to the coffee shop’s usual weekly Open Mic Night tonight, musician Phil Wickham will be performing at 9 p.m. Saturday at Common Grounds.

Wickham is a contemporary Christian vocalist/songwriter and guitarist from San Diego and he has released seven CDs, which include “Give You My World” in 2003, a self-titled album in 2006, “Cannons” in 2007, “Singalong” in 2008 and “Heaven & Earth” in 2009. His two most recent albums, “Response” and “Songs for Christmas” were released on Oct. 4, 2011. “Singalong 2” will be recorded March 30 in Costa Mesa, Calif.

Pre-sale tickets for the event are $18 and tickets will be $20 at the door.

Great Video Game

I know that with many of us just now finishing up midterms, it seems difficult to accept we are only about two months away from the completion of the school year. However, this is the case and we will only have a chance to run a few more pieces in our “Great Video Game” series. If you would like to submit a game for consideration, please send in your suggestion with a few hundred words on why you consider the game to be great.

In our last issue, we will include a list of all of the games featured in the series, so if you don’t submit a game, it’s not going to be on the list, which is too bad because we want it to represent Baylor.

Although our “Great Video Game” series focuses only on console games, we will also be running a list of “Great Computer Games” in the future, so please submit those suggestions as well.
