Senior Pride Speakers Series. While this monthly event is hosted by Southern Arizona Senior Pride, which celebrates and supports LGBTQ+ seniors in our community, all are welcome. This month, guests will hear from Beth Fuller, owner of TLC Coordination and Advocacy, an organization that advocates for seniors and individuals with disabilities or serious mental illness by doing everything from accompanying clients to appointments and taking notes to making sure their concerns are addressed by healthcare professionals. She’ll be speaking about how she does this work with coordination and compassion, and about the benefits her work provides. 2 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, with a different speaker the second Tuesday of every month except August. Himmel Park Library, 1035 N. Treat Ave. Free. Details here.


Bellows (Oliver Kalb) writes gentle musical meditations, sometimes silly, often profound. Enlisting saxophones, organic and sequenced drums and guitar to underscore his humble lilt, he crafts low-key builds beneath his yearnings to be a better human. Like an upbeat Mark Kozelek, Kalb searches for reasons and ways to love himself, never losing perspective on his tiny place in the greater universe of Brooklyn, New York. Like a mindful Stephen Malkmus, he calls himself out on human folly, “Sucking orange juice, from the tonic water bottle/You turn to me and ask me if I’m through/And I laugh at you and throw away the bottle … with every bottle, I consume.” Bellows is still touring its fourth album, 2016’s Fist & Palm, before re-entering the studio to record an even more mindful and self-reflective collection of Housekeeping songs. Bedroom rock at its apex, and Kalb is cleaning out his closet for the whole world to see. With Lowlife. Owls Club, 236 S. Scott. Tuesday, July 10, Doors at 8 p.m. 21+. —B.S. Eliot. Details here.

After the class, nama-stay at Playground to take in the view of downtown Tucson and enjoy drink specials like $2 off wine and draft beer. $6 for the class. 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 10. Recurring every Tuesday until July 24. 278 E. Congress St. Details here.

Jaws
  • Jaws

Jaws. Just in time for summer, Harkins Theatres is showing Spielberg’s classic for their Tuesday Night Classics series. Considering there’s really nothing else to be said about this horror masterpiece, here’s a piece of trivia: The famous line, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat,” was not scripted, Roy Scheider ad-libbed it. 7 p.m., July 10. 5455 S. Calle Santa Cruz. Details here.



Jesika von Rabbit with Spindrift. To dismiss Jesika von Rabbit's psych rambles as kitsch would be criminal. Part Gaga, part Crystal Method and all John Waters, she has long been hailed as the "queen of the high desert." With songs like "Gaydar" and "Glamorous Misery," von Rabbit's solo career is danceable, witty electropop which highlights her brains and her moxy at once. She garnered acclaim as the front woman of Gram Rabbit, which aurally represented all things Joshua Tree; country and western heritage, psych drugs and a vibrant LGBTQ culture. On this tour, she's joined by a Tucson native, bassist Lee Joseph, who was part of Tucson's punk rock first wave (The Suspects, White Pages, etc.) and who now runs Dionysus Records and pens the soon-to-return Vintage Vinyl column in Tucson Weekly. Also on the bill: Filmic, spaghetti western band Spindrift, founded by composer/producer Kirpatrick Thomas almost a quarter century ago, as well as the mighty Crystal Radio with Gabriel Sullivan. The show promises to be visually, topically and aurally engaging and inventive. Tuesday, July 10, Club Congress, 311 East Congress Street. Doors at 7 p.m. $10. 21+.—B.S. Eliot  Details here.
