Avenged Sevenfold

This hardcore punk band likes to wear black makeup and look disinterested in pictures. It's also done a tribute song for Hunter S. Thompson, who probably didn't wear makeup but was interesting anyway. 7:30 p.m. $22. The Rialto Theatre. 318 E. Congress St.

More than Petticoats

If you have a yearning desire to know everything there is to know about women from Nevada, this lecture is just for you. The brown-bag dinner will feature the author of "Remarkable Nevada Women." 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Free. Arizona Historical Society Auditorium. 949 E. Second St.


El Ten Eleven

This post-rock instrumental band is supposed to sound like Sigur Ros, except probably not Icelandic. 10:30 p.m. $3. Plush. 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)

Long Beach Shortbus

Let's face it, listening to Sublime is just really cliché. But if you've got to quit the habit, do it slowly by seeing this band. They have members from the aforementioned as well as Long Beach Dub All-Stars. SKITN opens. 8 p.m. $12 in advance, $15 at the door. City Limits. 6350 E. Tanque Verde Road

"The World's Fastest Indian"

Anthony Hopkins builds an Indian motorcycle and rides it close to 206 mph. Then he cuts somebody's brain out and eats it like a steak. Oh wait, wrong movie. 7 p.m. $8, discounts available. The Loft. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd.



We're not really sure who this rapper is, but doesn't the name just kick ass?! The Rialto Theatre. 8 p.m. $20 in advance, $22 day of show. 318 E. Congress St.

Dance Festival 2006

This event features dancers from all over the world. And unlike the parties you go to, almost none of them are drunk. 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. $15, discounts available. Proscenium Theatre. 2202 W. Anklam Road


"Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You"

Aside from not having Whoopi Goldberg, this play about nuns is supposed to be a real romp. 1:30 p.m. $10 in advance. Beowulf Alley Theatre. 11 S. Sixth Ave.

Sholin Guitar Competition Winners

This recital will feature guitar players who will most likely sound like Sebastian Bach; the composer, not the guy from Twisted Sister. Reception, 2:30 p.m. Free. Holsclaw Hall in the School of Music. 1017 N. Olive Road


The Coptic Tapestry Albums and the Archaeologist of Antinoé

The topic of this lecture can be explained perfectly in its title. That's pretty convenient, because I have no idea what it means. Just go if you like archaeology. 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Free. Arizona State Museum, Room 309

Ricky Martin

Shake your bon-bon all the way up to Phoenix for this one. 7:30 p.m. $24.50 to $72. Dodge Theatre. 400 W. Washington St., Phoenix


Bill Grassie

This guy works at the Metanexus Institute on Religion and Science, and undoubtedly will have something to say about faith and reason in our daily lives (and hopefully what a metanexus is). His lecture is called "Beyond Intelligent Design, Science Debates, and Culture Wars." 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Free. Steward Observatory. 933 N. Cherry Ave. Room N210


Brandi Carlile

This folksy alternative singer has been described as Thom Yorke fronting a roots-rock band. But then again, even Green Day and Ashlee Simpson have probably been compared to Radiohead at some point. 9:30 p.m. $7. Plush. 340 E. Sixth St. (21+)
