We're definitely in need of some comedic relief. Comedian and singer-songwriter Matt Griffo isn't afraid to work blue to tackle the fundamentals that plague our society. Enter Griffo's world, where he tells a story from two sides: as a diatribe and as a song played with his ukulele, guitar, and piano or accompanied by a cello. Musically he's quite adroit. Lyrically he's hiiiiii-sterical. I mean check out the song about the girl who can carry four glasses of beer at once — you'll have to find out how.
Matt Griffo plays Friday, December 22, at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point. 8:30 p.m. $5. lovincup.com; mattgriffo.com.
