Tonight: The School of Rock is mussing up their hair and/or pomading the unholy sadness out of it. It's Robert Smith vs. Morrissey in a battle of tears and loneliness, with the most adorable musicians this side of Cibo Matto* (I suppose that reference really dates me).
Hawthorne Theatre (1507 SE 39th)—The Cure vs. The Smiths: School of Rock, 7 pm, $10-12, all ages
* Speaking of... Yuka Honda's making a guest appearance with the Nels Cline Singers at Sunday's show at the Doug Fir. This sounds like it could rival the School of Rock for the weekend's most delightful show.
