    Five for Fighting are best known for a song about Superman. If you ask me, their singer looks like more of a Clark Kent.

    Today

    East Village Opera Company – Opera doesn’t get the respect it deserves. If you’ve seen MTV’s hip-hop-era rendition of “”Carmen,”” you will want to attend to hear songs from the real operatic “”Carmen.”” 7:30 p.m. $12 to $26. Centennial Hall

    Pistolita, Danger Radio, Heart and Handcrafted – Indie rock to sway to. Pistolita is not to be missed if you enjoy alternative rock. 7 p.m. $10. Skrappy’s, 201 E. Broadway Blvd.

    Tomorrow

    Kevin Pakulis – This is an all-ages acoustic event at Kino School. I used to live across the street from that school and I always wondered what went on behind its private Waldorf School walls. Students will be performing, so maybe you can meet kids that are somewhat alien to public school princesses like myself. 7 p.m. $8 adults, $15 families. Kino School, 6625 N. First Ave.

    First Friday Shorts – This short film contest is hosted by “”Red Meat”” cartoonist Max Cannon. As an audience member, you are required to scream “”gong!”” when a short film is getting boring or stupid. When the gong is hit, the short film gets booted – all in good fun, of course. 9 p.m. $5. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Saturday

    Save the peaks! – A screening of “”The Snowbowl Effect: When Recreation and Culture Collide.”” This documentary explores the controversial proposed plan to expand a ski resort onto sacred tribal lands by making artificial snow from wastewater. 6 p.m. Donations requested. Dry River Space, 740 N. Main St.

    Minus the Bear – aka Menos El Oso. Post-punk sensations, they’re hardcore and they know it. With P.O.S., The Velvet Teen and Russian Circles. 8 p.m. $12 advance, $14 at the door. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.

    Jay Leno – The man with the infamous chin will be gracing the casino scene. Not like you couldn’t just watch him on television, but maybe you want to see how big it is in person. His chin, that is. 7:30 p.m. $45 to $75. Desert Diamond Casino, 1100 W. Pima Mine Road

    Sunday

    Maya Angelou – An amazingly influential contemporary black author, Maya Angelou is kind of a big deal. With author and poet Tracie Morris. 6 p.m. $18 to $49. Centennial Hall

    Monday

    “”Ripples Cross: Life is Short, Make it Count”” – A documentary about the International Solidarity Movement in Palestine and their work. Educational and relevant; don’t talk politics without seeing it. 7 p.m. Free. Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering building, Auditorium

    “”Caught In The Net”” – This play is about a man whose daughter and son met on the Internet and fell in love. The father goes berserk trying to keep them from meeting one another. Creepy. Call 327-4242 for show times. $15 to $17. Live Theatre Workshop, 5317 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Tuesday

    Hank Topless – Honky-tonk and classic country music come alive through Hank Topless. He’s supposedly similar to George Jones, so hopefully he won’t actually be topless. 9:30 p.m. Free. Plush, 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)

    Vote! – It’s the second Tuesday in November, and you know what that means! It’s time to vote. Assigned polling places should have been mailed to you, but if you’re still unsure, visit www.azsos.gov for more information about voting.

    Wednesday

    Sender Receiver – I used to think grind-core meant bands like Hellogoodbye because the band has a shirt that says “”Grind wit yo girl to Hellogoodbye.”” Then I found out it is a form of experimental death metal. Sender Receiver is a real grind-core band, and you know what that means … plug your ears. 7 p.m. $5. The Living Room, 413 E. Fifth St.

    Sound Healing – Padma Soundsystem performs sounds that heal with guided meditation and chanting. Far out, it sounds really soothing and mellow. If you’re searching for some spirituality in your life, this event is for you. 8 p.m. Donations requested. Yoga Oasis, 2631 N. Campbell Ave.
