The most eye-catching event on the Thursday night agenda is a Nicki Minaj-themed version of the “Xotica” drag show at The Express. I don’t much care for Ms. Minaj’s music, but I imagine she’d be great fodder for a drag show, since she’s the hip-hop Lady Gaga and all.
QUIET! It’s not ArtHop night, but Tokyo Garden has a nice collection of local tunes for your Thursday night. It’s part of an occasional series called “Quiet!” where local musicians go unplugged for the evening. Tonight’s show features Malcolm Sosa from Rademacher, Niilo Smeds from High Winds, Luke Giffen from Quiet Americans and RC Essig from El Olio Wolof (R.I.P.) 9:30 p.m. $3.
NEW COLLEGE NIGHT: The Million Too debuts a new college night titled “Recess” — which works as a school allusion, but not so much when it comes to college. Ahh well, don’t spend too much time trying to figure it out. Just go out and party,
ALSO: There’s some “American Idol” dude at Sierra Vista Mall tonight. There may be a rant about that coming soon on this very site.
