Art Songs and Arias - UA Museum of Art. A soprano in the School of Music, Maureen Popovich, will perform a medley of "art songs" from the 15th century to modern times.

Tribute to the Smiths - The original emo band may have broken up a long time ago, but don't get depressed! You can still hear their songs performed live by a bunch of local Tucson artists. Plush. 340 E. Sixth St. 8:30 p.m. $5. (21+)

Michael Flatley's "Lord of the Dance" - Michael Flatley moves his legs as though independent of his body. This world- renowned group can't be missed. Centennial Hall. 1020 E. University Blvd. 8 p.m. $33 to $48


Mat Bevel - This local artist and puppeteer will perform his multifaceted show "Think Tank," involving puppets and a live three-piece orchestra. You really have to see it to understand it. The Mat Bevel Institute. 530 N. Stone Ave. 8 p.m. Performances run through Sunday. $10

Celtic Woman - This quintet made up of Celtic women has proclaimed that they are "trying to be for voice what 'Riverdance' was for feet." It will be an easy comparison if you see Michael Flatley today. Centennial Hall. 1020 E. University Blvd. 8 p.m. $45 to $55

Reggaeton - This Cuban rap music with Spanish lyrics has stormed the world, and now it's heading to the sun ... or Sol that is.

The Original Blues Brothers Band - Not to be confused with Blue Man Group, this performance should be just as epic as the original film "The Blues Brothers" that starred John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd. Centennial Hall. 1020 E. University Blvd. 8 p.m. $20 to $62

Tucson Poetry Festival XXIII: Poetry and Painting - Perhaps this is the perfect opportunity to bust out those third-grade haikus that your parents cherished so much.

We Jam Econo - This documentary is about the only cool group of Minutemen in history: the '80s punk rock band that broke up in 1985 after the death of their lead singer D. Boon. Not the soldiers in the Revolutionary War or the border patrollers. The Loft Cinema. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. 5 p.m. $5
