Savion Glover, known best for his tap dancing moves (and press photos that look like he’s jumping on a trampoline), will perform at Centennial Hall tonight at 7:30.
Thursday, November 3, 2005
American Analog Set — This band sounds like a mix between the Postal Service and George Bush giving the State of the Union address. Well, they are from Texas. 9:30 p.m. $7. Plush. 340 E. Sixth St.
Savion Glover — If you are one of the three people in the world who actually cares about tap dancing, this show is for you. This world-renowned tap dancer has danced at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Moulin Rouge and now Centennial Hall. 7:30 p.m. $25 adult price
Can Terrorists Make Us Laugh? — Much to everyone’s surprise, a television comedy script that pokes fun at terrorists didn’t go over too well in Hollywood. Now two screenwriters are getting their revenge by giving a lecture on post-Sept. 11, 2001, comedy. It’ll be a blast. 11 a.m. to noon. Free. Louise F. Marshall building
Mae — This band’s name is an acronym for Multisensory Aesthetic Experience. Strangely though, the aesthetics sound much like a pop punk band trying to act smart. Come see if they pull it off. 7:30 p.m. $12. The Rock. 136 N. Park Ave. (21+)
Rob Thomas — He doesn’t want to be lonely no more, so you have to pay for this (concert of course). 7 p.m. $25 to $45. Casino Del Sol’s AVA. 5655 W. Valencia Road
Celtic Festival and Scottish Highland Games — Probably the least alcoholic thing about Ireland, this Celtic extravaganza can actually pass as a family event. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. $12. Rillito Park Racetrack. 4502 N. First Ave.
The Lives of Convicted Killers — James W. Clarke will speak about the death penalty and the “heinousness and social marginality in capital sentencing.” 10:30 a.m. Free. Dusenberry-River Center Library. 5605 E. River Road
Puro Mexicano Tucson Film Festival — This event features famous filmmakers and celebrities, panel discussions and Mexican-influenced films. 10 a.m. $10. Tucson Convention Center. Leo Rich Theatre. 260 S. Church Ave.
Vocal Ease — The School of Music will present the Gary LeMel Vocal Jazz Concert. 7:30 p.m. Free. Crowder Hall
The Controversy Surrounding Pluto and the 10th Planet — Mark Sykes discusses cool space science stuff like whether Pluto is actually a planet. It may not have anything to do with your life, but hey, neither does watching “Laguna Beach.” 7:30 p.m. Free. Steward Observatory
The Clientele — This is the coolest Indie rock band to come out of England since last week. With the Radar Brothers and Annie Hayden. 9 p.m. $8. Solar Culture Gallery. 31 E. Toole Ave.
