Three Great Things to Do in Tucson Today: Tuesday, Oct. 2

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2018 at 1:00 AM

Houndmouth are the kings of fleeting happiness. They pen anthems for jaded atheists who can still wring joy from this fucked-up world. The small-town Indiana trio could have been weaned on Spoon’s “The Way We Get By,” because instead of getting all nihilistic in such harsh reality, they jangle, bop and “whoah, whoah” their way into a listener’s skull. And when they are at their most poppy, they are most hard-hitting, “Hang on Sedona let me cut you a deal/I’m a little hungover and I may have to steal your soul.” Like Arcade Fire, they instantly access nostalgia and then well-document that sinking feeling that nothing will ever again be as good as right now. In “Say It,” they offer up their secret for success, or at least survival: “shoot low.” You will never be disappointed and you might just have a shit-ton of fun along the way. With Family of the Year on Tuesday, Oct. 2. Rialto Theatre, 318 East Congress St. Doors at 7 p.m. $27-$29. All ages. Details Here.

Pajama-palooza Pajama Storytime
. Every night can be pajama story time if you really want it to be. But it’s rare that you get to have pajama story time outside of the house! Not only is the library making it possible, but they also provide activities like crafts, music and puppet shows at these Tuesday evening events. Grab your comfiest jammies and get ready to be on the edge of your seat while still staying cozy. All ages welcome, but this event is especially fun for kids. 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2. Mission Library, 3770 S. Mission Road. Free. Details Here.

Music by Benise. The Prince of the Spanish Guitar is making his debut in Tucson. With his romantic twang this would be the perfect concert for a date night. Plus it's out of the ordinary. This performance is a tribute to Old World Spain and will definitely sweep you off your feet. With beautiful backdrops and dancers it will be nothing but elegance. Tickets are from $29-$95. 7:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at Tucson Fox Theatre, 17 W. Congress Street. Details Here.
