    After a year’s hiatus, the Great Cover-Up is back this year at the Rialto Theatre and Hotel Congress for a three-day music event. Local bands and artists are invited to perform a 20-minute set of songs that are entirely someone else’s, tweaking their music styles to match those of others. Come enjoy music played by temporary tribute bands!

    “”Home Alone”” 20th Anniversary at The Loft Cinema

    The movie that made Macaulay Culkin famous is back on the big screen this Friday at The Loft Cinema. “”Home Alone,”” believe it or not, is celebrating its 20th birthday this year, so come to the screening for a dose of nostalgia and to feel like you’re really getting older. You’ll have dozens of chances to watch it on syndicated cable networks this holiday season, but only one opportunity to see it in theaters, so bring your inner child — and keep the change, ya filthy animal.

    The Vandals

    From Huntington Beach, Calif., The Vandals have never taken themselves too seriously, but have put out some seriously great records. The punk band was formed in 1980, toured the world throughout the decades and has finally landed in Tucson. They’re self-proclaimed funny men, using their music to let their sense of humor shine.

    Border Film Festival at The Loft Cinema

    With issues of immigration inundating the national news landscape, it’s easy to forget we have such a unique experience with border relations living in Tucson. The Border Film Festival will include not only three insightful documentaries, but also a panel discussion with a local private borderland owner and representatives from local human rights organizations.
