You spent the entirety of your last weekend with your family, and, good lord, you need to get out of the house. Looking for a way to blow off some steam? Agenda's got you covered.

Creative Control, a comedy-and-variety show hosted and produced by local comic Joe McAdam, shakes down tonight at Saki. The show starts up at 8 PM, and its scheduled performers include Marty DeRosa, Cameron Gillette, Timmy Brochu, and Cullen Crawford. Creative Control is free, but donations are accepted and encouraged.

Dance producer Henry "Shlohmo" Laufer headlines the Bottom Lounge tonight. Shlohmo "has the heart of a rap producer and the mind of an avant-garde electronic composer," writes Miles Raymer, "a founding member of the LA-based Wedidit collective (made up of like-minded hip-hop experimentalists such as Groundislava and Jonwayne) and a frequent performer at long-running and highly influential club night Low End Theory, Laufer has released an album and a couple of EPs, including this year’s Vacation (Friends of Friends), that verge on the ambient, but the unauthorized remixes he posts online offer more immediate gratification." Sepalcure and the Abstract Science DJs will be providing support.

Envisioning Bob Saget's Danny Tanner as anything other than dad of the year may seem damn-near impossible, but in Attend the Tale of Danny Tanner: A Full House Musical , showing tonight at Gorilla Tango Theatre, you get to see him portrayed as a homicidal maniac. "Writers Chris Gorton and Katie Johnston-Smith have made Danny a psychopath who memorializes his wife by killing one drunk driver a year on the anniversary of her death," writes Tony Adler, "that's OK with Jesse and Joe—until Danny starts getting sloppy." Sounds hilariously dark.
