    LAUGH IT OFF: Rapper M.I.A. would be proud of Dallas comedy: proceeds from Laugh in Relief, a showcase featuring the hip-hoppin', rockin' Fourth Wall Comedy improv troupe and other local talent, will benefit war victims in Sri Lanka. Call 214.823.5233 for tickets. Hyena's in Dallas, 8PM.

    LOCAVORES' LAND: Chef Sheena Croft and Wine Steward Jason Lastovica of Hannah's Off the Square pledge that the contents of tonight's family-style 100 Mile Dinner will almost exclusively come from within 100 miles of the restaurant -- "down to the table salt." RSVP at 940.566.1110 as space is limited. 6:30PM.

    FRIENDS OF KITTENS: Greg Ginn & The Taylor Texas Corrugators release their instrumental jazz/rock fusion songs as free downloads, which is cool enough.
