Friday, Sept. 7



LOL!
SHAWN AND MARLON WAYANS

Hey, two out of four Wayans Brothers ain’t bad. Shawn and Marlon, the two youngest, got their start in big bro Keenan Ivory’s hit film “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka,” then went on to join “In Living Color,” create “The Wayans Bros.” sitcom, and star in the horror-parody “Scary Movie” series.

FUNNY BUSINESS
CHARLIE MURPHY

He looks so much like his younger brother Eddie that you expect him to break out that goofy Horshack laugh. But Charlie’s made his own way in comedy, with a huge role in “Chappelle’s Show” and his stand-up special “I Will Not Apologize.”
Details: 8:30 and 10:45 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 8:30 p.m. Sunday, at the Miami Improv, 3390 Mary St., Miami; 305-441-8200 or www.miamiimprov.com; $30.

BANG YOUR HEAD

Next Week



INDIE HEAVEN
BUILT TO SPILL

If you love clever, melodic indie-rock with crisply distorted guitars, this Boise band led by mad genius Doug Martsch that’s been chugging for two decades is for you. Newer bands such as Modest Mouse, The Strokes and Death Cab For Cutie cite Built to Spill as a major influence.

OH, THOSE VOICES
IL VOLO

Here’s how hot this young Italian singing trio is: They’re in South Florida for no less than FIVE shows (not even Madonna, U2 or Bruce Springsteen do that). See what all the hype’s about and how The Teenage Tenors have crooned their way into America’s hearts.
Details: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16 and Sept. 19 at the Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Sept. 18 at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach; LiveNation.com; $45-$105.

REVENGE OF THE NERDS
FRENCH HORN REBELLION

If you never thought band geeks could be cool, think again: This super-talented duo of Brooklyn brothers that grew up playing the French horn and bassoon sounds more like the electro-funk of hipster groups Hot Chip and Daft Punk than a high-school brass band. Afrobeta and Auto Body open.
Details: 10 p.m. Thursday at the Green Room, 109 SW 2nd Ave., Fort Lauderdale; www.greenroomlive.com; $10.
