20 Minute Loop's Kelly Atkins, Nils Erickson and Greg Giles
20 Minute Loop's Kelly Atkins, Nils Erickson and Greg Giles
It'd be like, if you were a huge XTC fan, and you got Colin Freakin' Moulding to play your Thursday night early show (7pm).

And then Moulding was all, "hey, do you mind if Andy Partridge and Dave Gregory join me for a few songs?"
Shanti Charan
Shanti Charan
Shanti Charan’s bubbly personality and contagious smile lure in audiences and her comedic abilities keeps them laughing. She is a fast-rising fresh face in the Bay Area comedy scene. Her ability to formulate quick connections makes it easy for her to communicate with diverse audiences. She won 1st place in the 2011 Rooster T Feather’s Comedy Competition and participated in the 2011 San Francisco International Comedy Competition where she advanced to the semi-finals. Charan was recently awarded SF Weekly’s 2012 Best Stand-Up on the Way Up. SF Weekly says Charan’s writing “is clever and confident beyond her years.”
Nathan Habib
Nathan Habib
Hello! I’m a stand up comedian who brings a fresh personality on stage with a burst of energy only comparable to the mintiest mouthwash. Oh you want jokes? I got those too! I’ll share with you my social observations on life with a confidently silly attitude. I’ve brought my witty humor at clubs all over California and have performed with national headliners such as Arj Barker, Rich Vos, Mark Pitta, Jim David, and Moshe Kasher.

I was born in Belgium, raised in Palo Alto California where I was brought up in a Jewish Israeli household with a Latvian mother, an Italian raised dad, and two older brothers giving me plenty to talk about. I recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz and have been doing comedy since my freshman year of high school.
Ben Kolina
Ben Kolina
Ben Kolina got his first experience drawing laughter from strangers in the right-field bleachers of the Oakland Coliseum, at the expense of visiting players. A proud resident of Livermore, California, Ben mounted an unsuccessful campaign for the mayor's office at 18 years of age. (Yes. Ben "mounted". Then was discounted.) Currently 28, a former musician, a former journalism student, and an experienced retail technician; Ben Kolina ate hallucinogenic mushrooms in the woods two summers ago, and decided to do stand-up comedy. Since then, Ben has performed in showcases at Tommy T's and at San Francisco's historic Purple Onion.
The East Bay 3 (W*A*S*H house band)
The East Bay 3 (W*A*S*H house band)
The gents of the East Bay 3 have mastered telepathy, subliminal body language, and reflex training to sharpen their skills as accompanists. Want them to back you on "Billie Jean," done as a bossa-nova? Done. Want to stop on the chorus of a B-side by the Cure to tell your Robert Smith story? Got it. Want to sing "The Greatest Love of All" over a Sex Pistols riff? Roger that. Each week, new musical guests and audience members throw heavy objects at the EB3, and each week, some blood is left on the stage. The Rev. Gil Gilmartin, a former resident of Brazil, wears his thunderbass high; Kevin Seal, from Griddle and Pandora's music team, experiments on a Fender Rhodes; session drummer and studio wizard Adam White is widely known as The Most Followable Drummer In The Western Hemisphere. The EB3's motto? "The singer is always right."
