Whether you’re feeling uninspired or just in need a little reminder to live every day like it’s the best party ever, Andrew W.K. is here to help.

And I mean literally, physically here. The rocking, advice-dispensing party king will be at the Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway, tonight for his Power of Partying 50 State Speaking Tour.

Tickets are $20-29.75, admission is 16+ and doors open at 7 p.m. The show starts at 8 p.m.

For those of you who, like me, need some laughs to lighten up a scary movie, Trade has just the thing.

From 7 to 11 p.m. over at 475 Santa Fe Drive, they’ll be showing the John Waters comedy-horror flick “Serial Mom.” They’ll also be showing a surprise second film right after.

They’ll be showing the movies outside by a fire, so dress for the weather and bring a blanket. Snacks will be provided.

The Preservery and The Real Dill, are working together to support Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute (RMMFI) and having a free launch party to celebrate.

From 7 to 9 p.m. at The Preservery, 3040 Blake St., they’ll have pickle samples, briney cocktails and pickle boards on special, along with live music and door prizes.

And for the next six months, a portion of the proceeds of The Preservery’s pickle board sales and featured cocktail, both made with the help of The Real Dill, will be donated to the RMMFI. 

And if you’re feeling lucky tonight, head over to Grandma’s House, 1710 S. Broadway, where every Tuesday is bingo night.

The games begin at 7 p.m.
