It's still a little quiet on the event front tonight, so here are a few things to help you out of the post-Christmas food coma:

We’ll give you one guess which band Hollywood U2 covers...Tonight they’re playing a free concert in Pershing square beginning at 8 pm. The concert’s part of LA’s “Downtown on Ice Winter Series,” at LA's largest outdoor holiday skating rink.

Tonight at midnight, Army of Darkness plays at the Nuart. Bruce Campbell plays a supermarket worker who’s transported back in time to battle an army of dead in order to go home. A cult classic.

The Beverly Hills Hi-Def Film Fest and The Fine Arts Theater present the area's only All HD Film Fest. It starts today and runs until Jan. 4. There are numerous screenings of features, documentaries and shorts, including Orphans of Apollo and The Agony of the Ganges tonight.

The Fillmore & Western Railway returns Santa to the North Pole tonight by train. Hop on an hour train from Fillmore, just off the 126 Freeway in Ventura County, to the “North Pole.” The train departs at 6 pm.
