Lost Lake Lounge, 3602 E. Colfax Ave., is offering a lot of bang for your buck tonight, with a four-band lineup for $10-12.

Mom Jeans and Graduating Life are headlining, with support from locals Obtuse and Pretty Tired.

Doors are at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.


The Alamo Drafthouse, 4255 W. Colfax Ave., is screening “Wadjda,” the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia. It was also written and directed by a woman.

The movie is set in the Riyadh suburbs, where bike riding is considered a threat to a girl’s virtue. But one 10-year-old girl is determined to get herself a bike anyway.

The screening is at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $8.


And it’s time again for ’90s TV Dinner at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox, 1215 20th St.

As always, they’ll be serving up an $18 three-course meal — vegetables, meat and dessert — with Zima and wine coolers and all the best television from the 1990s from 5 to 8 p.m.
