Published 9:24 am Thursday, February 21, 2013

Friday,  Feb 22:
Sevendust / Lacuna Coil,
with special guest 3 Years Hollow
7 p.m.
Club Fever
222 S. Michigan St., South Bend, Ind.
(574) 234-5200

Here’s a show sure to excite the alternative metal fans, and it’s good to see Lacuna Coil cranking away after hanging with Christina Scabbia at SXSW ’07.

“Searching for Sugar Man”
8:30 p.m.
Riviera Theatre
50 N. Main St., Three Rivers

If you’re not a metal fan, see this movie. Ebert agrees with me and gives it four stars. Say hello if you see me there.

Saturday, Feb. 23
Acting Ensemble presents:
“Why Hanna’s Skirt Won’t Stay Down”
7:30 p.m.
Studio 217
217 S. Michigan St., South Bend, Ind.
(574) 807-0108

This show regularly sells out as a testament to its absurdist fun. NOTE: mature language. Are you immature enough to handle it? I hope so, but you may want to leave the kids home.

Sunday, Feb. 24
Goldberg Variations of Bach
3 p.m.
The Snite Museum of Art
100 Moose Krause Circle
Notre Dame, Ind.
(574) 631-5466

I don’t have much info on this one, but who can argue with Bach, or anyone named Goldberg, for that matter?

Tuesday, Feb. 26
“The Invisible War”
6 p.m.
Riviera Theatre
50 N. Main St.
Three Rivers
(269) 278-8068

I wonder if there will ever be a week I don’t tell you to check out something at the Riviera Theatre. Get a glimpse into the rising rate of sexual abuse against women in the U.S. military. Did you know that a female soldier in a combat zone is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire? Yet another courageous film shown at the Riviera.

Wednesday, Feb. 27
“The Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter”
7:30 p.m.
DeBartolo Performing Arts Center            100 Performing Arts Center
Notre Dame, Ind.
(574) 631-2800

This film documents the tragic Stones performance at the Altamont Speedway in December 1969 where concertgoer Meredith Hunter was stabbed to death by Hell’s Angel Alan Passaro, while the Stones played on. This film was instrumental in Passaro’s acquittal after footage showed Hunter pulled a gun after being punched.
