Monday To-do: Aug. 2

Live music options for tonight are nearly nonexistent. Let’s talk about TV news instead.

Anybody watching the new Louis C.K. show “Louie” on FX? If you’re a fan of C.K.’s stand-up, you should check it out. It’s like a modern day Seinfeld only without the live laugh track. Oh, and it’s pretty dark, too. Oh, and when discussing his show with Terry Gross a couple of weeks ago, he offended enough people for Mississippi Public Broadcasting to announce it had banned Fresh Air from being played. No, it wasn’t that offensive, but yes, maybe the Seinfeld comparison was a little off. Hey, he does some stand up at the beginning of each episode. Eh?

In other TV news, anybody got any guesses on who’ll replace Steve Carrell after he leaves The Office? Anybody see the Helvetica poster in Mad Men last night? Anybody think Rubicon will make it?

Locally, this should be an interesting news week. There’s a Street Committee meeting this afternoon to discuss the possible changes to the still incomplete Block Avenue Enhancement project, and today’s the last day to submit a WAC expansion proposal.

OK, get back to work. Here’s that short list I alluded to:
