    today

    • Street-Prov Theatre Collective – This improvisational comedy group finally found a place to perform off the streets! If you’ll be on campus, don’t miss this hilarious performance. Last week’s show featured a half-bear, half-dinosaur character, so who knows what craziness this week’s show will bring? 8:30 p.m. Free. Social Sciences building, Room 100
  • “”The Importance of Being Earnest”” – Oscar Wilde’s infamous play re-enacted by a troupe of high schoolers. Relive high school memories and join the unduly proud parents of junior actors in the audience. 7 p.m. $2. Canyon Del Oro High School, 25 W. Calle Concordia
  • Mozart’s “”Cosi fan tutte”” – UA Opera Theatre presents this silly tale of mistaken identities, performed by UA graduate voice majors. This can give you a chance to hear what people who sing outside of the shower sound like. 7:30 p.m., today, tomorrow and Saturday. $10 students, $15 general. Crowder Hall
  • tomorrow

  • “”Double Agent 73″” with live music by the Love Me Nots – The Loft brings you this late-night cult classic with a performance by rockabilly hipsters the Love Me Nots. Put the kids to bed and sneak out (don’t hire a babysitter – they just eat all your food). 11:45 p.m. $5. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
  • These Arms Are Snakes – Falling into the genre of post-hard/math core, These Arms Are Snakes have been a secret among rock fans since their first album, Oxeneers Or The Lion Sleeps When Its Antelope Go Home, released on Jade Tree Records. Their second full-length album, Easter, was just released, and rest assured, its songs will stick in your head. With Mouth of Architect, The North Atlantic and Chango Malo. 7 p.m. $5. Skrappy’s, 201 E. Speedway Blvd.
  • Hejira – I didn’t know that you could classify an artist from Seattle as being “”world.”” I guess when you wear white face-paint and play in a guitar, bass and drums trio, you suddenly fall into that abysmal category. Not to mention that the bass player has a cyst in his hand, yet continues to jam. Now that’s dedication. 8 p.m. $8. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.
  • saturday

  • UA Band Day – Marching bands – 38 marching bands – consecutively performing on one football field? Sounds like a party to me. Finally, an event that cuts to the chase and features nothing but half-time shows. 8 a.m. $5. Arizona Stadium
  • “”Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”” – I get confused simply reading the movie description. Something about Khan and a barren planet named Ceti Alpha 5. If your boyfriend is a Star Trek fan, surprise him by taking him to see this movie. Oh wait, Trekkies don’t have girlfriends. 10 p.m. $5. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
  • Refugee All-Stars – Born out of civil war in Sierra Leone, Africa, this band shows the toughness of the fighting spirit. And they don’t sound too bad either. 7 p.m. $21. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • War – Funk R&B, with low rider car show.. Nothing sounds like war more than a low-rider car show. But it fits since they sing the song “”Low-Rider.”” You know, all my friends drive a low-rider. 7 p.m. $15. Desert Diamond Casino, 1100 W. Pima Mine Road
  • sunday

  • Killswitch Engage – Get ready to rock! No really, you have to be ready before you go or else you’ll get trampled by the “”Generation Heavy”” kids that grew up on heavy-metal who are more ready than you. With Shadows Fall and Bury Your Dead. 7:30 p.m. $17 in advance, $20 at the door. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • School of Theatre Arts presents “”Beyond Therapy”” – The story of two single New Yorkers trying to find themselves and love in the big city. Sounds like the journey of almost everyone in the world. 2 p.m. $4. Drama building, Room 116
  • monday

  • She Wants Revenge and Pretty Girls Make Graves – Hell hath no fury. I think Pretty Girls Make Graves should be the headlining band on this tour because they have what I like to call “”talent,”” but at least you get to see them play earlier! She Wants Revenge wants to tear you apart, so if you’re masochistic then jump in! With Monsters Are Waiting. 7:30 p.m. $20 in advance, $22 at the door. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • “”Jaws”” – Steven Spielberg’s 1975 thriller taught me just how many lives beach towns were willing to sacrifice to allow everyone access to the ocean’s waters (the answer is four). This free-screening of “”Jaws”” includes a talk with famous cinematographer Bill Butler. 7 p.m. Free. The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
  • tuesday

  • The Hanks – It’ll be an indie-pop extravaganza! The Hanks say that they are “”better than your favorite band,”” and I’d have to say that’s a bit of an overstatement – but they have definitely weaseled their way into my top five. With Feel Good Revolution, The Shaw and Million Billion. 7 p.m. $5. Skrappy’s, 201 E. Broadway Blvd.
  • Fast Heart Mart – If you’ve never seen talented hippies playing down-home acoustic rock, then check out Fast Heart Mart from Albuquerque, N.M. 9:30 p.m. No cover. Plush, 340 E. Sixth St.
  • wednesday

  • Casa Maria benefit show – Casa Maria is open 365 days a year and serving free food to more than 800 people a day. It’s Tucson’s only free soup kitchen, so show your support by bringing canned food and other donations. Performances by Stefan George, Kevin Pakulis and band, Mark Insley and more. Proceeds benefit Casa Maria soup kitchen. 8 p.m. $5, donations of canned food appreciated. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
  • Marianne Dissard – French-born and Tucson-bred singer Marianne Dissard performs cabaret-style music in French. She has done collaborations with Calexico, and during the 2004 election she spearheaded the Tucson Suffragettes (encouraging virgin voters to pop their cherry). 9:30 p.m. No cover. Plush, 340 E.
