"Bedrooms and Boyfriends 2"

Mizerany's "My Life As a Sitcom" confronts sitcom tropes; Hammond's "Delivery" is about a mysterious pizza delivery man; and Ginn's "Pigs In a Blanket" deals with a connection made with a sexy singing telegram.

Max Raabe and Palast Orchester


Max Raabe & Palast Orchester returns to San Diego with another show full of class and 1920s-era music.

Together with Raabe's 12-piece orchestra, he channels the spirit and decadence of the German Weimar with dancers, vintage sounds and fancy clothes.

The musician is also known for adding his signature style to pop songs, including Britney Spears' "Oops! ... I Did It Again."

Details: 8 p.m. on Friday. Balboa Theatre, 868 4th Ave., downtown. $25 to $75; find tickets.
