    Today

    Chicks – This is an art exhibition showcasing pieces by five women: Elizabeth Albert, KoKo Bellows, Kristy Lynn, Barbara Ross and Kendra Yost. I don’t know about you, but I hope KoKo Bellows is an alias. 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Free. Zoe Boutique, 735 N. Fourth Ave.

    The Planets – The Tucson Symphony Orchestra will perform Gustav Holst’s classic while visitors can see Mars and Saturn through a telescope outside. According to the Arizona Daily Star, “”The Planets is out of this world!”” Heedle hee. 8 p.m. $19 to $61. Tucson Music Hall, 260 S. Church Ave.

    Film Screening: “”Women NOW”” – Proves that just simply stating “”Women now”” will never get the point across, and that we must use capital letters in order to advance our cause. In addition, it deals with feminism and the women’s movement. 7-9 p.m. Free. Social and Behavioral Sciences Annex Conference Room, 1443 E. First St.

    Tomorrow

    Meet Nadia Shivack – This woman wrote “”Inside Out: Portrait of an Eating Disorder,”” which is actually a graphic novel about bulimia. Hey, pictures of vomit aren’t disgusting if they’re inspirational. 7 p.m. Free. Antigone Books, 411 N. Fourth Ave.

    Authority Zero – The punkish nu-metal band from Mesa, Ariz., played a few doors down from my house when I was a kid, and I never quite lost my fondness for the fact that I can claim to know them. Now they’ll be close to my house again! 6:30 p.m. $12 in advance, $13 at the door. Rialto Theatre, 318 E. Congress St.

    Saturday

    Poetry reading with Jennifer Michael Hecht – This poet is also a philosopher and historian, who has written scholarly articles on the history of religious doubt and societal ideas of happiness. She will read her poetry, which is hopefully just as interesting. 1 p.m. Free. UA Poetry Center

    UA Theatre Arts pre-show discussion: “”The Pillowman”” – The play is about a man who writes short stories similar to a series of child murders, and then gets interrogated by his totalitarian government. The pre-show will focus on behind-the-scenes info about the production. 1:15-2 p.m. Discussion free, performances are $4. Directing Studio, Theater Room 116, UA Fine Arts Complex

    Why? – This indie rap band plays low-key songs slowed down to a painful mid-tempo. They also have a cover of The Cure’s “”Close to Me,”” which will put you to sleep in a good way. With Cryptacize. Solar Culture, 31 E. Toole Ave.

    Sunday

    An Evening With Martin Short – Does anyone remember when Martin Short wore a fat suit and interviewed celebrities? I really hope he does that in his comedy routine, because for $40, I wanna see some flubber. 6:30-9 p.m. $42 to $62. Centennial Hall

    Monday

    30th Annual AzJazz Week – This is a series of jazz concerts going on all week. Today, they’ll have faculty performances and hopefully some improv. 7:30 p.m. $9. Crowder Hall

    Tuesday

    WXSW Concert: Juke Joint All Stars, Pistolera – If you’re too cheap or too busy to drive down to Austin for the South by Southwest Festival, you can see these slightly more obscure Tucson bands. 8 p.m. $8. The Hut, 305 N. Fourth Ave. (21+)

    Evidence, A Dance Company: “”One Shot”” – This performance will feature African, modern, ballet and hip-hop dance music. The show is inspired by Pittsburgh-based African-American photographer Charles Harris, a.k.a. “”One Shot.”” 7:30 p.m. $17 to $40. Centennial Hall

    Wednesday

    The Fall Outs – This is a punk band from Seattle, who’d probably play well with Tucson legends The Weird Lovemakers, or any other punk band that bangs stuff around and acts nonchalant about their music. 9 p.m. $5. Hotel Congress, 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
