    Today

    • Winterfest ’06 – Celebrate the end of the semester with free University Activities Board events such as poker, comedy performances, hot-air balloon, live music and arcade games. It’s a junior high kid’s dream! 8 p.m. Free. UA Mall
  • Public Enemy – That’s right, it’s the band that made Flavor Flav a millionaire. And they’re performing with DJ Lord, X Clan and The Banned. (Get it, sounds like The Band.) I wonder which oversized clock Flavor Flav will don. 8 p.m. $26 in advance, $30 day of show. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • Tomorrow

    • A Change of Pace – These rock stars are from Peoria and they’re touring the Southwest to show us all a good time. But seriously, what else are they gonna do? With It’s Like Love and In Memory. 7 p.m. $10. Skrappy’s, 201 E. Broadway Blvd.

    Friday

    • Del Tha Funkee Homosapien – He’s “”Russell”” in Gorillaz and he’s amazing. This show was previously scheduled for October but was cancelled. If you still have your tickets, you’re in luck because they will be honored here! With Mr. Bob Dobalina, Mike Relm, Motion Man, Bukue One and A-Plus. 8 p.m. $21 in advance, $26 day of show. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • The Manhattan Address – This bitchin’ local band and others will remind you why you need to cruise MySpace every day for great local artists. With Our Only Escape, Martinet, Averah, Visions of Utopica and Alieta. 7 p.m. $6. The Rock, 136 N. Park Ave.
  • Saturday

    • Urban Elites – Brought to you by the Culture Rhythm Dance Crew and Youth Organization, various hip-hop troupes from around Tucson will perform. All proceeds benefit Casa de los Niños to ensure that abused and abandoned children will have a good holiday season. 7:30 p.m. $10. Crowder Hall.

  • Leila Lopez CD release party – This folk songstress will perform the folk ballads Tucsonans love her for. She kind of sounds like Cat Power, except she probably isn’t an alcoholic (just kidding). Free. 7:30 p.m. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.
  • Sunday

    • “”The Polar Express”” – Answering the age-old questions “”Does Santa really exist?”” and “”Why are CGI movies always so creepy?”” 4 p.m. $10. Fox Theatre, 17 W. Congress St.

    Monday

    • Plain White Ts – They’ve been touring for almost a decade, and they’re here to bring you the best pop punk around. Their song “”I Really Don’t Like You”” has been gracing radio waves, proving that the Plain White Ts know how to tactfully describe a break-up to audiences. (If that’s possible.) With Spaz. 6:30 p.m. $10. Skrappy’s, 201 E. Broadway Blvd.

    Tuesday

    • Jet – Catchy band Jet will perform the songs of Oasis (or at least that’s what they sound like). Unwritten Law will also be there, and also the infamous Bayside, whose drummer died in a tragic car accident last year. 8 p.m. $20. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
