You had plans for last night, but you forgot all about today. We’ve got you covered, with film, music, distractions and catharsis.

It’s punk rock karaoke night at Bowman’s Vinyl and Lounge, 1312 S. Broadway. Hop up on stage with a live band and shout it out from 9 p.m. to midnight.


And speaking on punk rock, Ben Roy is at Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St., tonight.

But he’s not there with his band — he’s there to do some standup. The “Those Who Can’t” star will be joined by Mara Wiles, Andrew Bueno and other comics.

Get there at 8:30 p.m. It’s free.


New Orleans-based jazz singer Robin Barnes is performing at Nocturne, 1330 27th St., at 7 p.m. 

Cover ranges from $5 to $30. Make a reservation nocturnejazz.com.


Denver Film Festival is still going strong.

Tonight, you can see films about “the greatest play in the history of American football,” a mountain town love story, a mid-life crisis on a beach in Greece and more.
