    Today

    • Marianne Dissard – Screaming cabaret, similar to The Dresden Dolls (minus all of the face-paint). 9:30 p.m. Free. Plush, 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)
  • Mr. Boogie Woogie – Eric-Jan Overbeek, a.k.a. Mr. Boogie Woogie, will play the piano. I find it interesting that “”boogie”” is in the dictionary (as a form of instrumental blues) but “”woogie”” is not. I’ll take that off of my list of odd words to whip out in Scrabble. 6:30 p.m. Free. The French Quarter, 3146 E. Grant Road.
  • “”How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”” – Don’t you wish you knew? The UA School of Theatre Arts presents the classic musical. Marroney Theatre, 1025 N. Olive Road. For box office info, call 621-1162.
  • Tomorrow

      Astro Zombiesð – ðNot only does this sound like a really neat show, but it also takes place at the nightclub where my fake ID was taken away. Watch out for the bouncers; they suck. But this show will rock (rockabilly to be exact). With the Deadtones and Bamboula. 8 p.m. $5. Vaudeville Cabaret, 110 E. Congress St. (21+)

    Friday

    • George Squier Orchestra CD release – Artistic rock with synthesizer effects. They’re also performing with Golden Boots, a band that someone told me about, but when I couldn’t find their CD anywhere I assumed that a joke had been played on me. With GSO and The Bloat Gang. 9:30 p.m. $4. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
  • Lacuna Coil – Metalheads beware – this show will scorch you with intermixing vocals from Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro of Lacuna Coil. With the Haunted. 7 p.m. $15 advance, $19 day of show. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • Spirit Familia and The Black Man Clay Show – Worldly funk and reggae-tastic sounds. The Black Man Clay Show taught me how to make a teapot out of clay back when my art teacher wouldn’t let me because it “”wasn’t the assignment.”” 9 p.m. $5. The Hut, 305 N. Fourth Ave. (21+)
  • Spitalfield – Punk-pop yourself to Skrappy’s to see the band Taking Back Sunday probably doesn’t want you to know about (considering most of their old songs are about the TBS’s lead singer breaking up with Spitalfield’s female-lead vocalist). 7 p.m. $10. Skrappy’s, 201 E. Broadway Blvd.
  • Saturday

    • The Hidden Cameras – Experimental music. If you’re craving some indie rock, then check out the other bands playing: Lagoon and Born Ruffians. Lagoon blew the crowd away on the Warped Tour and probably have some hidden cameras stashed away to follow you before the show and make sure you’ll like them too. 9:30 p.m. $8 advance, $10 day of show. Plush, 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)

  • “”Pee-wee’s Big Adventure”” – The Loft Cinema brings the public yet another cult classic. Oh Pee-wee Herman, I love you. Even when I was afraid of bicycles, I still loved this movie in which Pee-wee searches high and low for his stolen pimped-out bicycle. 10 p.m. $5. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
  • Sunday

      “”Panstraction!”” Concert – The UA Steel Band will be performing a culmination of rhythms inspired by the West Indies. If you’re worried this concert may be just a little too much pan music for you, have no fear because Kelland Thomas will guest on saxophone and Robin Horn on drums. 7:30 p.m. $5-$9. Crowder Hall, 1017 N. Olive Road. For box-office info, call 621-1162

  • Arsonists Get All the Girls – It’s true. Too bad I’m not a lesbian. From the sounds of this grouchy death-metal band, I’m guessing they are sexually frustrated non-arsonists. 7 p.m. $6. The Living Room, 413 E. Fifth St.
  • Mates of State – Everyone always says they’re the cutest married couple that makes cute indie music. I say that they’re a good band with two married members, which adds to the heartwarming effects of the high-pitched vocals and harmonies. 7 p.m. $10 advance, $12 at the door. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.
  • Queensryche – Heavy metal legends that are surprisingly still touring! 7:30 p.m. $30 to $40. Tucson Music Hall, 260 S. Church Ave.
  • Tatsuya Nakatani – I’ll bet you $10 that you’ve never seen an improvisational percussionist from Japan. Go see the show and then you can win the bet next time. 9 p.m. $8. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.
  • Monday

    • All-American Rejects with The Format – You’d think after being rejected so much they’d stop touring. But no. The Format, Motion City Soundtrack and real hip-hop from Gym Class Heroes will make up for the rejects that headline the tour. 6:30 p.m. $25. Centennial Hall, 1020 E. University Blvd. For box-office info, call 621-3364

    Tuesday

    • Pima Community College jazz ensemble – Pima has a jazz band too! Their 18-piece ensemble will perform jazz standards from early swing to modern styles at PCC’s West Campus. 7:30 p.m. $6. Proscenium Theatre, 2202 W. Anklam Road.
  • Sugarcult – This fantastically exciting lineup features Sugarcult, The Pink Spiders, Damone and Meg & Dia. Simply a beautiful event that is not to be missed, Meg & Dia perform acoustic sister-rock, Damone has a hot female-vocalist that rocks the punk scene and The Pink Spiders are helping arachnophobic people everywhere overcome their fear. 7 p.m. $15. The Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.

    Wednesday

    • Attrition – Gothic rock-stars from England show you what the electro-industrial revolution felt in the U.K. 9 p.m. $8. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.
