Happy Humpday, web denizens! You've survived another election and are looking to party — we know how you roll. Good thing there are all manner of awesome things to do in our extensive event listings and carefully crafted Staff Picks

If you don't have the inclination to sift through all those yourself, we're here to help. Here are the events that jumped out as I perused what's happening on Wednesday, Nov. 5: 

MUSIC | Down Pullman way, it's time for the day-long WSU Jazz Festival, featuring percussionist Tom Morgan.

COMEDY | We trust you've read our Arts & Culture Editor Mike Bookey's recent story on the local comedy scene by now. Now check out some local talent for yourself at Open Mic Comedy night at the Brooklyn Deli.

MUSIC | Local band Bodhi Drip makes their regular Wednesday stop at the Red Room Lounge tonight at 9:30 pm. Here's a YouTube clip of the band playing last month:
