    Today

    Garry Mitchell

    This gallery show features abstract paintings and prints by a former Tucsonan. His art kind of looks like graffiti, except pretty good. If that’s possible. 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Free. Conrad Wilde Gallery, 210 N. Fourth Ave.

    Tomorrow

    “”Lucha Libre: Its Role in Mexican History and Popular Culture””

    At first, I thought this was some sort of civil rights movement. But alas, it’s just a lecture about Mexican wrestling. Afterward, they’ll have an exhibition featuring the Mexican masks they wear in the ring. 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Free. Center for English as a Second Language, Auditorium

    Two Gallants

    These guys are on the same label as Bright Eyes and sing songs like a young Johnny Cash would if he were still making music … and alive. With Cold War Kids and the Crowd. 9 p.m. $7. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.

    The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival

    Yes, contrary to popular belief, there are more documentaries out there than “”Fahrenheit 9/11″” and “”March of the Penguins.”” This film festival lasts all weekend and features a selection of other emerging and important documentaries. First movie starts on Friday at 6:30 p.m. $5 individual film, $25 festival passes. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Saturday

    Annual Rose Show

    This is kind of like the gem show, except they’re showcasing something that smells good. And I hear the chili dogs are $4, as opposed to $7.50. 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Free. Trinity Presbyterian Church, 400 E. University Blvd.

    Sunday

    Clean Air Fair Jam

    To champion the environment, this music and entertainment festival is giving out free rides on Sun Tran and free admission to Reid Park Zoo if you ride your bike and wear your helmet at the front gate. I don’t think we could ask for any more. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free. Reid Park, East 22nd Street and Randolph Way

    “”Little Women””

    At least you know Michael Jackson won’t be at this operatic adaptation of the famous novel. He likes little men! 3 p.m. $15. Stevie Eller Dance Theatre

    Monday

    Tucson Weekly Personals On The Road

    If you’re finally tired of going out on dates with Jabba the Hutt, go pick up a personals ad. The Tucson Weekly is giving them out, along with free entertainment and badly Photoshopped cover art. 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Free. Bookmans, 1930 E. Grant Road

    Bob Dylan

    Looks like this guy’s going to be tangled up in red and blue this weekend when he visits Tucson. He’s not really coming to the UA, but the TCC’s close enough. 7:30 p.m. $40.50 to $66. Tucson Convention Center, 260 S. Church Ave.

    Tuesday

    Irvin Mayfield and the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra

    This Grammy-nominated 16-piece band is headed by a trumpet player from New Orleans. It’s time to put on your sunglasses, say the words “”cool cat”” over and over like they actually mean something and attend this snazzy jazzy event. 7:30 p.m. $18 to $36, discounts available. Centennial Hall

    Wednesday

    The Pod People

    This Australian “”doom metal”” band has made an album called Doom Saloon and is playing with a band called “”Fuck, I’m Dead.”” That is all. 7:30 p.m. $4. The Living Room, 413 E. Fifth St.

    “”The Celestine Prophecy””

    This movie adaptation of the popular book is like a new age version of a Dan Brown novel. Except without Tom Hanks and the girl from “”Amelie.”” 7:30 p.m. $10. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
