Bugs are headed to Tucson, and they're from L.A. The Termite TV Collective brings its "Living Documentary Series" to Access Tucson, 124 E. Broadway Blvd., tonight from 7:30-8.

Termite TV comes to Tucson by means of a converted 1960s school bus. The group will exhibit its latest project from its last location on the tour, "Life Stories from Sitka, Alaska and Space."
