If you’re in the mood for some rootsy, activist-minded folk, you can still get a ticket to see Hurray for the Riff Raff at the Bluebird Theater, 3317 E. Colfax Ave. It’ll cost you $20.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts with Making Movies at 8 p.m.


And there are a few good options around town if you want to make it a movie night.

“Star Wars: Rogue One” is playing at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 18300 W. Alameda Parkway. Tickets are $15 and the film starts at dusk, but get there at 7 p.m. and check out local bands the Haunted Windchimes and the Milk Blossoms.

And at the Esquire Theatre, 590 Downing St., they’re showing “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything,” starring Wesley Snipes, Patrick Swayze and John Leguizamo star as three drag queens who get stranded in the tiny Midwest town while traveling from New York City to Hollywood for pageant. Screenings are at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. and tickets are $8.50.
