-- Stardust and Empty Wagons -- Stories from the Katrina Diaspora:
: This looks inspirational. Ahem, "developed from the testimony of Katrina survivors in the Bay Area...a tribute to the culture, music and everyday life of a New Orleans...with live music performed by New Orleans' own The Hot 8 Brass Band, ten actors portray tales of terror and bravery from the greatest disaster in U.S. history." And yes, probably sad. Curtain goes up at 8 p.m. at the Brava Theater; $18-24.

-- Citay: Along with other local bands the Oh Sees and Nurses, come celebrate Citay's album release. Their music is...well, unique. We mean that in the best possible way, too -- a great band. Starts tonight at 9 p.m. at Cafe Du Nord; $8.
