    Wednesday

    “”Persona”” multimedia invitational exhibition – This is not to be confused with the literary magazine on campus that wins so many awards but nobody ever reads. This is an exhibition where more than 40 local artists actually create works that express the word “”persona.”” Ends July 22. 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Free. Obsidian Gallery, 4320 N. Campbell Ave. #130

    Butt Trumpet with Drizzle – Butt Trumpet claims to be quite possibly the last punk band. They have songs about stealing tampons, dead dogs, white trash and crashing funerals. If they’re not good enough, Drizzle should be entertaining? 10 p.m. $5. Vaudeville Cabaret, 110 E. Congress St. (21+)

    Thursday

    E-journalism class – Learn how to pollute the world more efficiently by posting your ramblings, awful poetry and “”political discourse”” on the Internet. This class will teach you how to create Web sites, blogs and more. 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Free. Santa Rosa Learning Center, 1075 S. 10th Ave.

    Friday

    “”The Refugees All Stars”” – This movie is about a group of African musicians that survived a decade-long civil war by hiding out in Guinea and making music about the struggle. The theme is “”the transcendent power of music,”” so that probably means that it’ll be a good show for band nerds at least. 6 p.m. $8.25. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Saturday

    Meet the artist: Cesar Martinez – This Chicano artist paints people in bright colors like aliens or Muppet characters. You can meet him and see his work if you go to the gallery talk. 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Free with museum admission. Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N. Main Ave.

    Sunday

    Sweet corn extravaganza – OK, I know you have to actually get in a car to attend this event, but it should be well worth it. Willcox, which is just outside of Tucson, is having a corn-picking event where you can take vegetables straight from the vine. 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Free. Apple Annie’s Produce and Pumpkins, 6405 W. Williams Rd., Willcox

    Monday

    “”Probable Lives”” – Aaron Zaritzky, a Spanish translator, will read from this newer work by famous Spanish writer Felipe BenÇðtez Reyes. Reyes was a famous postmodern writer that cultivated the Poetry of Experience technique. As long as your experience isn’t snoring, it should be a good show. 6 p.m. Free. UA Poetry Center.

    “”It’s Magic”” – This is a magic show combined with a stand up comedy routine, featuring three performers. It probably won’t be “”Everybody Loves Raymond,”” but you might at least get to see a card trick performed by someone younger than 90. 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. $14. The Gaslight Theatre, 7010 E. Broadway Blvd.

    Tuesday

    Minders – This pop band has an uncultured, garage guitar rock sound. That may not be appealing to snobs like me, but I hear people in the world other than Rivers Cuomo actually still listen. Go find out. 9 p.m. $7 day of show. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
