MUSIC: Beloved "slowcore" trio Low will be at Great American tonight in support of their latest album, C'Mon, which was "[r]ecorded in an old church in Duluth, MN and mixed in an apartment in Hollywood, CA” and is considered the band's most "accessible" album to date. (7 p.m., Great American Music Hall, 859 O'Farrell Street)

THEATER: Theater Pub will honor the recent passing of playwright Lanford Wilson tonight with staged readings of Home Free! and Ludlow Fair, "two plays about roommates, studio apartments, and a need to connect in the midst of a bustling, perhaps dangerous city." (8 to 11 p.m., Cafe Royale, 800 Post Street)

OPERA: USF presents a talk by San Francisco Opera’s Director of Music Administration, Dr. Clifford Cranna, on Puccini’s final opera Turandot, which was banned for decades in China, telling the story of a "cold, cruel Chinese princess who challenges suitors with three riddles, and how Puccini went through great lengths to imitate Chinese melodies and adapt this Central Asian fairytale into his last opera." (5:45 p.m., USF Main Campus, Fromm Hall, 660 Parker Avenue)
