    Today

    • Celebrate Tucson’s Birthday – With Living Historia – This event seems like the coolest possible party you can have without alcohol, which still isn’t that cool. But it does have food, plus Capoeria, karaoke, origami-folding and a Winterguard performance. Ok, maybe you should get drunk beforehand. Goes until Sunday. 8 p.m. Free. The Muse, 55 N. Sixth Ave.
  • Big Miniatures – This art exhibit features some miniature paintings and an artist with a really confusing name: Ç_zlem Ç_zgǬr Silverstein. Is that Jewish, or Middle Earth? I don’t know. Anyway, the theme is war and torture in the Middle East, so bring your dancing shoes. Opening reception 5:30 p.m. Free. Kachina Gallery, SUMC third floor
  • Friday

    • Nortec Collective – This band comes from the U.S.-Mexico border, and plays NorteÇño music infused with electronica, funk and rock. And apparently everyone in the band is either a D.J., a graphic artist, filmmaker, or a fashion designer. They better have good music videos. 9 p.m. $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
  • “”Final Phase: Photographs”” by Chris Dunker – This guy’s photographs were taken in the Geneva Steel Mill in central Utah when it was about to close. The theme is the fate of the mining industry in years to come, and the collection features a lot of close-ups of machinery. It’s like futurism, but a century too late. I guess that makes it pastism. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free. Union Gallery, SUMC third floor.
  • Saturday

    • Chow Nasty, Shark Pants, The Make Out Party, The Go, Lemon Drop Gang – Isn’t it weird that the only people who still like punk music are either under the age of 17 or over the age of 35? Well at least half of them will be able to make it to this punk show at a bar. The other half will have to stand outside and try to convince the dorky old men in Sketchers shoes to buy them cigarettes at Grill. 9 p.m. $5 cover. Vaudeville Cabaret, 110 E. Congress St. (21+)

    Sunday

    • KFMA Free Ball – This event features two bands who’s names suggest they could have made it, but somehow fell short of stardom: The Starting Line and The Almost. Maybe it was because pop-punk became un-cool at the end of high school. Too bad, they could have switched to emo and held on for another year. Now they’re stuck playing for free to advertise a shitty radio station. 7:30 p.m. Free by logging into www.kfma.com or listening to the station for instructions. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.

    Monday

    • “”The Horror of Party Beach”” – Usually these dumb ’60s movies bore me, but this one kinda seems interesting. It’s about “”sausage-faced monsters”” from the ocean attacking people. What do they do, give them heartburn? Guess I have to find out. 8 p.m. $2. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Tuesday

    • “”Below the Fold”” by B.F.A alumnus Roberto GudiÇño – I know, it seems like I’m padding this list with stuff from the Loft, but this one’s important: it’s about Southern California’s Latino community. Plus, it was made by a guy who takes the same classes as you! Well, some of them, anyway. Ok, none of them. 7 p.m. $5. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Wednesday

    • Mexican Tucson 1821-1854 – This lecture will be about the Mexican period of Tucson’s history, and will feature, gasp, a Power Point presentation. Sounds enthralling, but don’t keel over before you get to the end, because they’re going to pass out replicas of artifacts! 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Free. Presidio San Agustin del Tucson. 133 West Washington St.
  • “”Broadway Bound”” by the Arizona Repertory Theatre – Neil Simon, wasn’t he the one who sang “”Mrs. Robinson?”” Maybe they’ll talk about that in the final installment to his autobiographical trilogy. Man, I’ve got to think of better jokes. 7:30 p.m. $19 for students. Tornabene Theatre, in the Drama building.
