Saturday Night Fever


Hustle on down to the Tobin for a performance of the play that pushed a young, butt-chinned Italian stud into the spotlight. I can never think of this movie/play without the brilliantly titled Holy Molar song "My Saturday Night Fever Turned Into a Sunday Morning Rash" coming to mind. God bless you, Mark McCoy. $32.50-$89.50, 7:30pm, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624

Tuesday Night Music Series: Ken Little and Friends

Little by Little would be a perfect album title for self-penned songs from this local artist extraordinaire who makes country rock, despite its often-awful proponents, not a completely deplorable thing. Free, 7:30pm, Liberty Bar, 1111 S. Alamo St., (210) 227-1187
