If you have driven by the old Snickerz Comedy Bar on Saint Joe Road lately, chances are you have noticed the fresh coat of paint on the building. 

Gone is the eye-catching teal decor. In its place is a classier white-and-black color scheme. 

A new comedy club is taking over the facility. Summit City Comedy Club is an A-list club scheduled to open this fall. Its webpage shows photos of well-known comedians such as Bob Saget, Taylor Tomlinson, Pauly Shore, and Leanne Morgan. 

We will see these talented acts grace the stage? We will have to wait and see as show announcements are expected soon. 

To stay in the loop, visit summitcitycomedy.com to sign up for updates on the grand opening and upcoming shows.

Static-X leads heavy metal at the Clyde 

The Clyde Theatre announced that multi-platinum selling industrial music icons Static-X will bring its 2022 “Rise of the Machine” North American tour to town on Friday, March 18, at 6 p.m.

Sevendust and Tremonti rock the region

On Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 7:30 p.m., The Eclectic Room in Angola will welcome the “Tour Twenty Twenty One” featuring heavy hitters Sevendust and Tremonti. Recently added to the bill are Riding with Killers, a three-piece rock act from Detroit. 

Riding with Killers features guitarist/vocalist Taylor Roberts, a former sales engineer for Sweetwater Sound. Roberts, a native of Biloxi, Miss., moved to Fort Wayne in 2018 to focus more on his music. 

That journey had him settling in town for a bit before locating to his current home of Detroit. 

If you know Roberts from his time here or want to see a superb in-your-face rock act, make sure to show up on time that evening. 

Riding with Killers also features bassist Tim Krukowski, formerly of the alternative rock band Sponge. 

Tickets are available now via TicketWeb.
