Less trinkety than a crafts fair. More socially responsible than another band on the Mall. It's the Recycle Fair, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Take your fancy Recycler cup and act all proud and righteous.

You know him and love him from his Wendy's commercials and his beer plugs, but once upon a time B.B. King played . . . the blues, silly! And that's just what he's gonna do tonight at Centennial Hall.

Tony Church is here to spiff you up. He's from the Royal Shakespeare Company (that's in England), so he knows his stuff. "Give em a Bit of Mystery" (don't ask me, those Brits spell funny) is the title of his one-man show, which traces the evolution of acting styles from Shakespeare's time to the last of the great Shakespeareans, Sir John Gielgud. Tickets are $11 for students, $13 for UA employees and $15 for the general public for this one-night-only show, Monday at 7:30 p.m. at the Laboratory Theater.

Wednesday, Nov. 26

The death of Tucson musician Rainer last week was truly tragic, but the outpouring of memorial tributes for him has been a bright spot in a dark time. Wednesday night, Rainer's close friends Calexico and Giant Sand will play Club Congress (311 E. Congress St.) as a tribute to him and a benefit for his family. Donations will be accepted at the door and Hotel Congress is donating $500 themselves. To make a donation or for more information call 622-8848.
