    Today

    The Melismatics

    This indie pop-rock foursome plays music that sounds kind of like that Morningwood band that was big for two seconds. Plus, they have a chick guitar player named Pony, so that’s pretty cool I guess. 10:30 p.m. $4. Plush, 340 E. Sixth St.

    “”All My Sons””

    This is an Arthur Miller play about post-World War II. If you don’t remember, he was the guy who wrote “”The Crucible”” and “”Death of a Salesman,”” those two plays you had to read in your high school English class. In between drawing cartoons of course. 7:30 p.m. $10, discounts available. Pima Community College Center for the Arts, Black Box Theatre, 2202 W. Anklam Road

    Tomorrow

    Amandine

    This Swedish band plays folksy ballads and melodic overtures. The songs sound like they should be on the soundtrack for a really artsy action flick. Something starring Tom Cruise wearing thrift store clothes. 9 p.m. $6. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.

    Cammy Thomas and Wendy Burk

    These two poets have specialized in Victorian poetry. They will give a lunchtime reading, sign autographs, and explain the concept of those ridiculous hats. 12 p.m. Free. University of Arizona Poetry Center

    Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers

    These guys are a bunch of hippies who play rock music. The lead singer looks like Bono too, except without the horrible sunglasses and annoying cheesy songs. 8 p.m. $20. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St. (21+)

    Saturday

    Miss Gay Western States America

    Guys looking for hot lesbians, you’re not going to find any here. All of the people in this pageant are men dressed in drag. So, there’s no “”miss””-ing this event. 7 p.m. $12.50 to $20. Doubletree Hotel at Reid Park, 445 S. Alvernon Way

    The Seventh Annual Ice Train Classic Step Show

    It’s events like these that make it easy to write the calendar. This fraternity-hosted dance night is a joke in and of itself. 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. $15 in advance, $20 day of show. Centennial Hall.

    TucsonFilm.com ShortFest

    This mini film festival will feature short films from Arizona and around the globe, as well as the Oscar-nominated short “”7:35 In The Morning.”” I hear it’s expected to end around 7:40. (Bada ching!) 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. $10. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.

    Sunday

    Big Band Express

    This jazz band has graced the stages of the Tucson Community Center, the Oro Valley Jazz Festival, The Ak-Chin Casino and – wait for it – the Silver and Turquoise Ball. If these guys keep their fingers crossed, they might even perform at the Gold or maybe even the Platinum Ball sometime next year. 6:30 p.m. $15 for students. St. Philip’s Plaza. Southeast corner of East River Road and North Campbell Avenue

    Afternoon of Yiddish Culture

    If the Easter Bunny creeps you out with its smarmy grin and overzealous personality, celebrate Passover this year instead! Or at least go to this reading of popular stories and novels from the late 19th and 20th century. Come on, we all know that some of the best writers are Jewish. 2 p.m. Free. Jewish Community Center, 3800 E. River Road

    Monday

    Justin Kredible

    This magician/comedian’s name is really Justin Decent. Or Justin Klingforapunchintheface. Whatever’s best. 7 p.m. $13. Gaslight Theatre, 7010 E. Broadway Blvd.

    Astronomy public evening lecture

    This lecture is about “”White Dwarfs and What They tell us about the Lives of Stars.”” I hear Verne Troyer and that guy from Jackass are expected to be there. But Joe C. won’t. (He’s dead.) 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Free. Steward Observatory, Room N210

    Tuesday

    The 2006 Annual MFA Thesis Exhibition

    This exhibit features two- and three-dimensional art, photography and visual communications by students completing their graduate degrees. That means the stuff is going to have a lot of cracks about class availability and the Student Union Memorial Center. Hopefully. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free. Art building, Joseph Gross Gallery

    Maria Taylor

    This lady is the singer from Azure Ray, that folksy indie rock band. You know the one. It’s not like there are many folksy indie rock bands to choose from. That was sarcasm. 9 p.m. $7. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.

    Wednesday

    “”Boys of Baraka””

    This movie is about a group of seventh- and eighth-grade boys who leave the “”tough streets”” of Baltimore to attend an “”experimental”” boarding school in Kenya. I had no idea Baltimore was so bad. 7 p.m. $5. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
