MUSIC
Thursday, Oct. 27
Lo-fi garage rock kings the Reatards are coming to our fair city, and it seems like no one knows. The show isn't even posted up on the AZPunk.com calendar. C'mon kids, this band will blow your mind. The Memphis band will demolish the Clubhouse Music Venue, 1320 E. Broadway Road, with its crackling guitars and frontman Jay Reatard's Southern-influenced croon. The Reatards are not for the faint of heart, Jay's lyrics are provacative to say the least. If you enjoy the offensive and gritty, $7 will get you in the door (which opens at 7 p.m.). See www.clubhousegigs.com for more information.

Monday, Oct. 31
Since you're far too old to be trick-or-treating (seriously, you should have stopped by high school and shame on those of you who didn't), why not spend your Halloween bobbing your head to the smooth rhymes of Sage Francis. That's right the political rapper is performing at the Clubhouse Music Venue, 1320 E. Broadway Road, on Monday, Oct. 31. Sage Francis doesn't pull any punches. Take a couple lines from "Gunz Yo": "I know that only stupid people increase the birthrates/I'm just about dumb enough to hold up a sperm bank." Intrigued? The show kicks off at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $18. See www.sagefrancis.net.

Tuesday, Nov. 1
If you're looking to hang out with the indie elite, swing by the Clubhouse Music Venue, 1320 E. Broadway Road, on Tuesday, Nov. 1. The indie crew will be at the Clubhouse to watch one of the few amazing cover bands, the Detroit Cobras. Hailing from (you guessed it) Detroit, the band pay homage to everyone from Otis Redding to Ike Turner. The Cobras blend the soul of the '60s with a retro dance sound -- ideal for anyone who's into indie rock. Granted, some of you may not have heard the original tunes, but trust us, the Detroit Cobras do everyone justice. Tickets are $10 and doors open at 7 p.m. See www.clubhousegigs.com.

ASU Event
Saturday, Oct. 29
ASU is throwing a party, and you're invited. Actually, it's open to everyone, but ASU students score free food and drinks with a flash of a Sun Card. If you didn't notice all the events on Hayden Lawn and the signs around campus, this week is homecoming. And Saturday, Oct. 29, is the annual block party. Join the ASU band, cheerleaders and some creative floats for the parade at 11:30 a.m., next regroup at Old Main for the aforementioned delicious food, and then it's time for the homecoming football game. At 3:30 p.m. our Sun Devils will take on the Washington Huskies. Maroon and gold attire suggested. For more details and other homecoming events check out www.asu.edu.
