Cellar and Upright Citizens Brigade, Gabriela Tijerina has recently been

Tijerina brings her sarcasm, self-loathing and Texas charm to local
audiences with support from South Texas up-and-comers Mike Suarez, Aaron
Long, Ryan Shields and Trace Holt. $10, 8pm Wed, Jun. 21, Laugh Out Loud Comedy Club, 618 NW Loop 410, (210) 541-8805, lolsanantonio.com.
