Music:

She Wants Revenge
Tuesday, March 7

It's rare that you can call a love song creepy, but that's just about the only way you can describe She Wants Revenge's "Tear You Apart." Although this song has been getting a lot of radio play (usually the mark of death for any new group), we can't help but appreciate this band's new sound, which has been compared to Depeche Mode and Interpol, but definitely has a haunting quality all of its own. See the band at Martini Ranch (7295 E. Stetson Drive, Scottsdale) at their all-ages show at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and must be purchased in advance at www.ticketmaster.com. Call (480)-970-0500 for more information.

Theater:

The Benefactors
Friday, March 3 Sunday, March 19

Any time we hear the word "benefactor," we can't help but think of Pip's experience in the classic Dickens novel that every high-schooler is required to suffer through: Great Expectations. We promise that this play will be more interesting, and won't be written in Old English. The theme of this "inventive comedy," about an architect who attempts to turn one of London's worst neighborhoods into a paradise for its residents, is that "no good deed goes unpunished." We just love that irony. See The Benefactors at the Herberger Theater (222 E. Monroe, Phoenix) on Friday, March 3 or Saturday, March 4 at 8:00 p.m., or Sunday March 5 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $22.50 to $42.00. For tickets and more showtimes, call the Herberger box office at (602) 252-8497.

Film:

Walkout
Tuesday, March 7

We've had classes that are so boring that we've wanted to walk out, but we've never faced injustices strong enough to consider doing it as a political statement. This HBO Films drama tells the story of a group of Chicano students who, in 1968, staged a walkout of several public high schools in Los Angeles to protest discrimination. After the screening, director Edward James Olmos, producer Moctezuma Esparza and actors from the film will participate in a discussion about civil rights and social justice. Come to Neeb Hall (ASU Tempe campus) at 4:30 for free food the film will start at 5:30. Pick up your free tickets at the 3rd floor of the Memorial Union or the College of Public Programs Dean's Office (Wilson Hall 235).
