    Glass Artworks
    It’s the only kind of artwork that you can claim to “”see right through”” without sounding like an asshole. Go look at this display of glass treasures from artists such as Robert Sanders and Don Cuffe. 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free. Saguaro Artisans, 410 N. Toole Ave.

    Pageants of the Masters
    Apparently, there’s something going on in Laguna Beach beside a lot of debauchery and bad television. There’s a “”legendary”” pageant, which features live models recreating works of art. This lecture will tell you more about it. 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Free. Tucson Museum of Art Education Center Auditorium, 140 N. Main Ave.

    “”Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure””
    The Arizona Theatre Company will put on the last installment of the series showcasing everyone’s favorite detective (besides Veronica Mars, of course). 7:30 p.m. $26 to $44. Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Ave.

    Tomorrow

    Page France
    These indie rockers from Baltimore aren’t afraid to express spirituality in their music. They’ll probably be the next Creed or something, except without the horrible lyrics and trashy sex tapes. With This Evening, Golden Alphabet and Alone in Paris. 8 p.m. $3. Dry River Collective, 657 W. St. Mary’s Road

    Fourth Avenue Spring Street Fair
    I guess they have this thing twice a year? It’s time to stock up on dream catchers and cholesterol! 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Free. On Fourth between East University Boulevard and East Ninth Street

    John Trudell
    This writer of music and indigenous poetry will show a documentary about his life and give a short lecture afterward. And by short, I mean closer to Haiku than Homer. 7 p.m. $12. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Saturday

    Desert Writers
    If you’ve ever written a fantasy, horror or surreal novel (who hasn’t?), attend this workshop, potluck lunch and afternoon reading. Also go if you just like to read or get a kick out of watching fantasy nerds interact with each other. 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. $5. Tamara Spiritual Center, 3002 E. Fort Lowell Road

    Ukrainian and Eastern European Festival
    This festival of ethnic song and dance features the Barvinok Ensembles, Rusyny Folk Dance Ensemble, Mzekala Bulgarian Singers and lots of other names you choked over while reading Crime and Punishment in high school English. 7:30 p.m. $10 for students. PCC Proscenium Theatre, 2202 W. Anklam Road

    Sunday

    Celebrate Wildcat Pow Wow 2006
    This Native American festival will have music, vendors, and arts and crafts, food and community information booths. 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. $5, $3 for students. UA Bear Down Field, located north of the football stadium

    42nd Semiannual Camera and Photographic Show and Sale
    Unless you already have a camera, you should probably go to this photography event so you can remember it. You’ll surely want to, because there’ll be seminars about digital cameras, lighting for portraits and small-product photography. 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. $5. Inn Suites Hotel, 475 N. Granada Ave.

    Monday

    Al Foul
    This rockabilly musician is just Foul. I’m sure he’ll fit in around Plush. 9:30 p.m. No cover. Plush, 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)

    Tuesday

    The Soledad Brothers
    This blues rock band is from the same place as the White Stripes. I’m pretty sure they’re not actually siblings though. I guess it’s questionable with both bands. 9:30 p.m. $8. Plush, 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)

    Recital of Art Songs
    This concert will feature singer Heather A. Ribblett, pianist Brent Burmeister and lutist Douglas Thompson. I also hear there will be a special appearance by “”Lutacrist.”” 7:30 p.m. Free. Crowder Hall

    Wednesday

    UA Prose Reading Series
    George Saunders, who has written many essays and short stories, will give a reading of his works. Apparently, public parking is available at the Second Street Parking Garage. So, I think you know the right choice. 8 p.m. Free. Modern Languages building, Auditorium

    “”Windhorse””
    This movie chronicles the plight of three Tibetan siblings trying to survive under the Chinese regime. To make it more realistic, parts of this film were actually shot in Tibet and then smuggled out of the country. Kind of sounds like spring break. (I know where you got that stash of Coronas!) 7 p.m. Free. Student Union Memorial Center, Gallagher Theater
