Three picks for what to do in Central PA on Tuesday, August 11.
1) Mötley Crüe with Alice Cooper at the GIANT Center (Hershey)
The title of the Crüe’s final tour is “All Bad Things Must Come to an End,” and damn if that isn’t true. Tonight at 7 p.m., Mötley Crüe brings the rock to the GIANT center, marking their last-ever stop as a band in Hershey, as they race across America on their last tour. (Of course, if you can’t make it to Hershey tonight, you can try to snag tix for their Friday date in Philly at the Wells Fargo center, but… Friday Crüe shows may have the side effect of making you lose your whole weekend.) Tickets range from $20 to $99.50, plus fees, but hurry – one, shows like this sell fast, and two, online ticket sales end at 4 p.m. (If there are any left after 4 p.m., you can grab ’em at the GIANT Box Office.)
2) Mexitalica Open Mic at Mexitaly (York)
Maybe shouting at the devil isn’t in your wheelhouse this Tuesday night, but you still want to hear (or maybe even perform) some tunes. No worries – you, too, have entertainment options tonight. From 8-11 p.m., Gus Aguirre will be hosting Mexitaly’s open mic night. Grab some pizza, grab some beer, and listen to some acoustic jams as you ruminate over the meaning of life. Hell, if you’re super brave, maybe you can perform some of your own.
3) RechaKucha Night at Tellus360 (Lancaster)
PechaKucha is a deceptively simple concept. You have 20 images through the span of the presentation, each present onscreen for 20 seconds. Since your presentation is limited to exactly six minutes and forty seconds, every single word out of your mouth has to count, whether you’re talking about architecture (as the originators of PechaKucha were), history, or your last day of high school. Sound interesting? Check it out: Tonight at 7 p.m., Tellus360 is hosting their sixth edition of their ridiculously popular PechaKucha nights.
