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.

Part of the beauty of language comes in the knowledge that there are always combinations of words that no human has ever thought to put together before. For example, in the case of this Fox News interview with author, Nobel Laureate, and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, Fox has chosen to describe him as a “Holocaust Winner”:
Oops! I’ll assume that was an honest mistake on “Nobel Prize Winner,” and that Fox didn’t actually believe that was a term, and that Wiesel didn’t arrive to the studio and demand “NO NO, I WON the Holocaust! You better put that under my name.” So, great job, everyone.
