Daphne Merken, Lewis Black, and Morcheeba

Thurs - Books

Staff writer for The New Yorker, Daphne Merken considers what it means to be Jewish for the iPod generation, now some three generations removed from the Holocaust. Should they read the Torah on their BlackBerries? It's worth considering. 7 p.m. Thurs., Dec. 1. $6–$8. Henry Art Gallery, UW campus, 888-621-2230, www.nextbook.org. BRIAN MILLER

Sat - Comedy

Raising funds for Foolproof and Planned Parenthood, Daily Show regular and HBO hotshot Lewis Black brings his droll, dry, pointedly political comedy to town. 8 p.m. Sat., Dec. 3. $45–$75. Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St., 206-467-5510, www.foolproof.org. LAURA CASSIDY

Sun - Music

When Morcheeba began, they seemed like any other trip-hop group from England—except better than most. Unlike most of their peers, who faded in a weed-smoke haze, the trio is still around and making records like the new The Antidote (Echo). 8 p.m. Sun., Dec. 4. $25. Showbox, 1426 First Ave., 206-628-3151, www.showboxonline.com. MICHAELANGELO MATOS
