ARTS Pick: Stuart Davis

Stuart Davis is a man of many facets. You might even say he’s multi-faceted. He’s a musician with 14 albums to his credit, a comedian, a Bhuddist monk, a TV producer, a writer/actor, and a few dozen other things. The Minnesota-born punk monk is regularly referred to as the Twisted Mystic, earning his moniker with edgy and hilarious performances, where horny is holy, funny is profound, and love has no opposite. His shows blend bizarre original songs with comedy sketches and monologues, creating not only a music show but a fully realized performance piece. He is a man with a unique vision, for sure, and he’s bringing his quasi-psychotic carnival to downtown. No cover, .

Thursday 10/18 The Box, 109 Second St. SE. 970-2699.
