Infusion Release at 1912 Brewing. Infusions are back, baby. 1912 Brewing Co. is designating every Wednesday as their special infusion day. You get to try yourself a sweet, sour or hoppy infusion. 1912 says they love doing new, wacky infusions, so you really never know what you’re going to get, but it’ll be delicious local beer. 3 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 6. 2045 N. Forbes Blvd. Details here.

Things To Do at the U Tour. If you’ve read the whole Tucson Weekly and still haven’t found any arts, events or attractions in this town that interest you, maybe this tour hosted by the UA Visitor Center will give you the deeper knowledge you need. Check out some of the living laboratories, world-class fine art institutions and other hidden treasures campus has to offer in this tour that’s ideal for non-student visitors. (Maybe you have family coming to town that just missed the gem show? Or an old scientist pal who loves seeing other labs?) 10 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, March 6. UA Visitor Center, 811 N. Euclid Ave. Free, but reservations required. Details here.

Arizona Friends of Chamber Music Festival. With five days’ worth of music, this festival will have something for all instrumental music lovers. Day one features, just for example, both Philip Glass and Shostakovich. Day two’s got Beethoven and Mozart. Day three features Bacewicz and Arensky. Day four has Kevin Puts and Taneyev. And day five will be serving up Brahms and Mendelssohn. And that’s just some of the music you’ll hear! There’s so much more to enjoy at this festival, so attend one day, some of the days or all five to soak up some songs. 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 3. 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5, Wednesday, March 6, and Friday, March 8. 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 10. Leo Rich Theatre, 260 S. Church Ave. $30 adults, $10 students. Details here.

The Cat Video Fest 2019. Whereas the dog thinks, “These humans feed and house me, they must be god,” the cat thinks, “These humans feed and house me, I must be god.” For those who don’t mind the haughtiness, the Loft Cinema is screening “a fun, frisky and furry celebration of online cat videos.” Perfect for cat fanatics or those hoping to become one. A portion of ticket sales from these screenings will benefit the Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter and the HOPE Animal Shelter. 7:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 6. 3233 E. Speedway Blvd. $10. Details here.

The Bellrays. The punk and soul in the Bellrays’ music work like a chemical reaction: two independent and proficient pieces on their own which explode on contact, creating something wholly different, powerful and volatile. Their instrumentals feature the wailing guitars and driving drums found in a garage rock band, but frontwoman Lisa Kekaula’s dark, soulful vocals color the band into a breed all its own. A look at Kekaula’s favorite albums tells The Bellrays’ story: classic rock acts with even more classic blues influence. Catch The Bellrays at 191 Toole with The Atom Age. 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 6. $12-$15. 191 E. Toole Ave. 21+. Details here. Details here.
