    Sister Hazel is worth checking out if to at least sing along to All For You. You know it is already one of your favorites in your iPod, so show some love. Even if you do have better hair.

    Today

    • The Reverend Horton Heat – For all you rockabilly and swing masters, this Reverend is not to be missed. If you enjoy bopping to anything that shakes, rattles and rolls – or if you are an avid fan of polka dots – go see this rockabilly group and don’t forget to dress for the occasion. 8 p.m. $23 in advance, $25 day of show. The Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • The Album Leaf – Jimmy LaValle, former guitarist for the San Diego–based Tristeza, is the face behind this band, and his music is influenced by Sigur Ros and The Black Heart Procession. He likes to add feathered keyboards, filmy strings and chiseled drums into his songs, so be sure you are ready for an outstanding performance of this translucent, edgy music. 7 p.m. $10 in advance, $12 day of show. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.
  • Tomorrow

  • Sunday Afternoon – These mellow Tucson musicians started off as a Dave Matthews cover band and let us all be thankful they stepped away from that. They will be playing with the not-so-mellow Lagoon (who have previously torn up stages at Warped Tours) and Delcoa. 9:30 p.m. $5. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
  • Saturday

  • Buster Keaton’s “”The General”” – This classic silent film from 1937 will be screened with musical accompaniment by pianist/composer Rick Friend of Hollywood, Calif. The event marks the first silent movie screening at the Fox Tucson Theatre since it reopened in 2005. 7 p.m. $10. Fox Theater, 17 W. Congress St.
  • Senses Fail – Their latest album, Still Searching, fell short of discovering the X that marks the spot – i.e. it was bland and every song bled together like an emo-kid’s wet dream – but they get some credit by performing with heavy-hitting rock bands like Saosin, AlexisOnFire and The Sleeping. Saosin is bound to bring you their mature rocking sensibilities, and, if you’re lucky, maybe they’ll play their satirical song about hip-hop called “”Show Me Yo Bootyhole.”” 8 p.m. $18. The Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • Sunday

  • Wingspan Reel Pride presents Queer Shorts – This 90 minute mini-program features top LGBT short films, including “”A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Funeral”” and “”LA Dolls.”” 1 p.m. $5.25. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
  • Bark Bark Bark – These experimental New Wave geniuses that hail from Tucson are not to be missed. Performing with On and Off Superfast and Flagrante Delicto. 10 p.m. $5. Vaudeville Cabaret, 110 E. Congress St. (21+)
  • Monday

  • Me and His Call It Us and Name – It’s a night of indie bands with odd pronouns in their titles. 7 p.m. $5. Skrappy’s, 201 E. Broadway Blvd.
  • Tuesday

  • Open Life Sketch Class – This free life-drawing sketch class is run by a UA alumna and gives anyone interested the opportunity to draw and get his or her work critiqued. 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Free. Art building, Room 140
  • Wednesday

  • Rocket – Rocket is an all-girl group that kicks your ass harder than The Donnas. With local band The Lava Eaters, and Drizzle. 10 p.m. $5. Vaudeville Cabaret, 110 E. Congress St. (21+)
  • Sister Hazel – Wow, these incredibly old rockers are balding and touring – which makes sense because they released Absolutely last year; a hit among die-hard fans and a complete miss with everyone else. With Redlands. 8:30 p.m. $15. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
