    Today

    • Oktoberfest! – Sprechen sie drunk? More than 90 arts and crafts booths, live entertainment and, most importantly, beer.

  • Tomorrow

    • Krazy Native, Seth Mul, the Lab Munkz – I would imagine anyone would have to be crazy to be a native of this town, but this one is so loopy that he spells his name with a “”K.”” That’s insanity! 11 p.m. $5. Vaudeville Cabaret, 110 E. Congress St. (21+)
  • “”Raiders of the Lost Ark”” – Take a trip back to the times when Harrison Ford was young, the Nazis still played villains in movies and George Lucas hadn’t started bastardizing all of his movies for profit.

  • Saturday

    • Kool Shades CD Release Party – You have to wonder: Just how kool are his shades? Apparently so cool that they manage to transcend grammar. 6:30 p.m. $5. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.
  • Green Lady Killers – It’s a good thing we don’t have too many green ladies in Tucson, otherwise this band might just be tempted. 9 p.m. $5. Surly Wench, 424 N. Fourth Ave.

  • Sunday

    • Race Against Space, Saint Rorschack and A Particularly Vicious Rumor – I don’t know about the other guys, but A Particularly Vicious Rumor sounds like they could be pretty damaging to your typical high school cheerleader. Kind of like the herpes rumor I started about that skank Lysandra freshman year. That’s right, that was all me. 9:30 p.m. $5. Vaudeville Cabaret, 110 E. Congress St.

    Monday

  • Pope Benedict, Partial List of the Saved – I love the sacrilegious just as much as the next filthy atheist, but these band names are just getting redundant. 7 p.m. $5. Living Room, 413 E. Fifth St.
  • Wednesday

    • Lostprophets – It should surprise you to know that Lostprophets is actually a British band that just sounds American. Yeah, right, I’ve been using that line at bars for ages. Extra point for yet another religious name. 7:30 p.m. $16 in advance, $18 day of. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.
  • Magnolia Electric Co. – I’m not too fond of electric companies since Tucson Electric Power decided to charge me a $500 deposit just because I hadn’t paid them in three months. But as long as this band can abstain from raping my wallet, I might just give them a try. 9 p.m. $6 in advance, $7 day of. Club Congress, 311 E. Congress St.
