Dearly Departed - Since making bodily function jokes has gone out of style (finally!) come see this play that makes fun of death instead. Now that's classy. 7:30 p.m. $16, discounts available. Live Theatre Workshop. 5317 E. Speedway Blvd.
The El Paso Hot Button - If you're still sad but getting sick and tired of emo, this band is for you. Experimental blues that can push anybody's hot buttons. 9:30 p.m. $3. Plush. 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)
Lolita - Before Lindsey Lohan and the Olsen Twins actually made it popular to have the hots for young girls, this little temptress was seducing older men. Come see the film adaptation of the classic Nabokov novel. 7:30 p.m. Free. Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center, Room 120, 1500 E. University Blvd.
The Architects - This band comes from Kansas City, and apparently doesn't play ballads. 10 p.m. Free. Surly Wench. 424 N. Fourth Ave. (21+)
Mystery Tour - If you're still waiting for the Beatles to get back together, go see this band do an unplugged cover show. If it sucks, at least it's better than holding your breath. 8:30 to 11:30 p.m. Free. Westward Look Resort, Lookout Bar and Grille. 245 E. Ina Road.
Giant Sand - Tucson can get pretty surreal sometimes, especially when a Danish rock band named Giant Sand plays downtown. 8 p.m. $8. Club Congress. 311 E. Congress St. (21+)
Ashlee Simpson - Even if you hate her, I bet you don't hate homeless teenagers! The proceeds go to them, so you make the decision. 6 p.m. $30. Tucson Convention Center. 260 S. Church Ave.
Gifted By Otherness - There will be an open discussion about this book, which talks about spirituality in lesbian and gay people. People of all sexual orientations are encouraged to attend. 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Free. Grace St. Paul's Episcopal Church. 2331 E. Adams St.
Budapest Festival Orchestra - This orchestra composed of young players will perform pieces from Wagner, Mahler and Mendolssohn. Maybe you can get something to eat afterwards, because you'll probably be Hungary. 7:30 p.m. $10 to $62. Centennial Hall. 1020 E. University Blvd.
The Goebbels Experiment - In this film, Kenneth Branagh reads from the diary of the propagandist behind Hitler's speeches. 7 p.m. $8, discounts available. The Loft. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.
The Solace Brothers - This local rock band has toured all over the country and even in France. They don't smell though, unlike some of the scenesters that'll probably be at the show. 9 p.m. $4. Club Congress. 311 E. Congress St.
