    Calendar

    Today
    Great Big Sea
    This Celtic rock band is a great big sight, because they play instruments like the mandolin, bodhran, fiddle and concertina. I’m not sure what most of these are, but maybe someone will know. 8 p.m. $18. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.

    UA Dance Ensemble
    The Dance Ensemble will perform a series of “”Keyhole Dances,”” a show including work by guest choreographers and some improvisational dances. 7:30 p.m. $18, discounts available. Stevie Eller Dance Theatre

    Cine Mexico 2006 Film Festival
    The Loft will play eight new and old movies from Mexico as well as host discussions, lectures, celebrities and lots of people wearing Pumas. Check www.loftcinema.com for a full schedule. 5 p.m. Runs through Sunday. $5 per film, $35 festival pass. The Loft, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Tomorrow
    Shakespeare and Love
    This version of “”A Midsummer Night’s Dream”” features students, guests and “”keyboard faculty.”” What exactly does a keyboard faculty member do? Maybe they run online courses or something. 7:30 p.m. Free. Crowder Hall

    Emergenza Festival
    I just don’t understand how people pick band names these days. I mean, who really thought naming a band “”Cosmic Slop”” was a good idea? But somehow it worked, because they’ll be playing with Silence Falls Deep, Rock Sauce, The Pain Relief Bullet, The Gaza Strip and some more tragedies of modern linguistics. 9 p.m. $10 in advance, $15 at the door. The Living Room, 413 E. Fifth St.

    Saturday
    The Chocolate Genius Inc.
    This band did a pretty decent cover of a Beatles song on that “”I Am Sam”” soundtrack, so it’s probably worth seeing. But then again, if you make a Beatles song sound bad, you must really, really suck a fat one. 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. $10. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.

    Boston terrier playdate
    I just thought this was cute. A bunch of people get together with dogs that they actually aren’t going to consume. 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Free. Reid Park. East 22nd Street and South Country Club Road

    Sunday
    Jewish Arts Fair
    I guess it’s kind of like the Renaissance Festival, except these people probably like Woody Allen movies and go to upstate New York every summer. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free. Tucson Jewish Community Center, 3800 E. River Road

    13th Annual Cowboy Traditions Festival
    These people go to their Texas ranch during the summer and watch “”The Dukes of Hazzard.”” And I hope they watch “”Mr. Ed”” too, because that was just a great show. 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Free (concert $20). Trail Dust Town, 6541 E. Tanque Verde Road

    Monday
    Collisions in the Cosmos
    This lecture will probably disprove the facts from all those blockbusters like “”Deep Impact”” and “”Armageddon.”” As if we didn’t know already. 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Steward Observatory, Room N210

    It’s magic
    This magic show will star award-winning magician Norm Marini and have a special appearance by the Twist Its jump-roping team. I’m at the edge of my seat already. 7 p.m. $12, discounts available. Gaslight Theatre, 7010 E. Broadway Blvd.

    Tuesday
    Human trafficking lecture
    Arizona artists will present multimedia works about the social, psychological and physical abuse of human trafficking and sexual exploitation of young women and girls. I know how it is; trafficking makes millions of students late for class every single day! 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Free. Dinnerware Gallery, 101 W. Sixth St.

    Gunsmokin’ or Have Fun Will Travel
    After you go to the Cowboy Festival, you can go see this play about the Old West. Maybe you can swing by “”Brokeback Mountain”” on the way? 7 p.m. $15.95. Gaslight Theatre, 7010 E. Broadway Blvd.

    Wednesday
    Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender lecture
    A professor talks about “”Supporting LGBT Youth During the Coming-Out Process.”” Noon. Free. Student Union Memorial Center, Gallagher Theater
