Real Estate is in town tonight to play the Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway. The opener is harpist Mary Lattimer, because of course.

It should be extremely pleasant and dreamy evening, and it all starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25.


Attn. nerds: It’s NeuroNight at Cerebral Brewing Co., 1477 Monroe St. That means budding neuroscientists and anyone who just likes to talk about science is invited to drop by from 7 to 9 p.m. for a beer and an interactive experiment.

Spud Nation will be parked outside and serving starting at 4 p.m.


If you’ve ever wanted to be on a crazier version of “The Dating Game,” you’re in luck. Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St., is introducing the Dirty Laundry Dating Show, in which contestants will compete for a date with a special guest and some prizes from Illegal Pete’s. They’re promising “lots of laughs, plenty of intrigue, and maybe a little love.”

And if this sounds as terrifying to you as it does to me, that’s OK. They only need so many contestants anyway, so you can just go and watch. It’s free and it starts at 8 p.m.


The Grilled Cheese Festival at the McNichols building is sold out (unless you want $175 VIP tickets), but you can go get some grilled cheese courtesy of What Would Cheesus Do at Renegade Brewing Co., 925 W. Ninth Ave., from 5 to 9 p.m.
